T-Rex: Orchids! Natures...
T-Rex: SEXY SEXY flowers!
T-Rex: Orchids look a little bit like lady parts! And have tuber roots that look like man parts![1] Oo-er!
Utahraptor: Actually, T-Rex, ALL flowers are sexy.
Utahraptor: They're plant reproductive organs. Sex is ALL THEY DO.
T-Rex: Maybe so...
T-Rex: But LOOKING like rude bits is much sexier than actually DOING sex.
T-Rex: I think.

The author writes:

[1] The name of orchids comes form the Ancient Greek ὄρχις (orchis), meaning "testicle", and referring to the testicle-shaped twin tuber roots.
