Finally, something smells worse than my socks

This weekend, one of nature's worst smelling plants is expected to bloom at the U.S. Botanic Garden Conservatory. The Titan Arum plant is known as the "corpse flower" because it smells like rotting meat. The flower's scent attracts carrion beetles and sweat bees. And I thought women loved any kind of flower. I guess the Botanic Garden Conservatory won't be a hot dating scene this weekend unless you've got a sick sense (or scents) of humor.
