Not the Addams family, but a plant.

Boston is all in a tizzy because the Red Sox can't get out of their own way Morticia the corpse flower is blooming.

The flower is 4 feet tall and only blooms once every 15 years! When it does bloom it wilts after 48 hours. Talk about making every second count. 

The thing about the corpse flower is that when it blooms it smells like rotting flesh. Disgusting but awesome.

  1. We went and saw it on Saturday! It smelled even when it wasn't blooming so I can't imagine what it must smell like now.
