Much ado about Corpse Flowers

Apparently, the Corpse Flower at Cornell University is currently in bloom. I don’t really understand why everyone makes such a fuss about Corpse Flowers. I mean, seriously, you have to wait ten years for them to flower, and your reward for being patient is getting to stand in a room that stinks of rotten flesh and look at a plant. That sounds gross and horrible, not awesome and fun. If I were dating someone who was really into the idea of seeing the Corpse Flower, I’d be a little worriedAfter all, Criminal Minds has taught me that more often than not, people who are down with smelling a dead body turn out to have ladies stuffed in their crawl spaces.
