    this is the most amazing flower? The rare Monkey Orchid grows in the forests of Ecuador, South America (where our organic chocolate comes from).

    That's one of those things that's just so crazy that you have to google it to make sure it's real.

    Sure enough, it is real. And just in case it isn't crazy enough for you there's a full body screaming-polka-dotted-indecent exposure-purple monkey version too. Well played mother nature, well played.

    It sure is interesting, but I hate monkeys so much that I don't think it's even a little bit attractive.
