Boobook: So, this is the Dendrobium Bindi Irwin.
A Becky Lee: Yeap, sometimes when a celebrity comes to Singapore, they get an orchid named after them at the Botanic Gardens.
Boobook: It’s green and gold.
A Becky Lee: Yeap, they breed these specially, taking into account the position, personality and behaviour of the person they’re based on.
Boobook: These are for Margaret Thatcher?
A Becky Lee: Yeap, they’re called the Iron Lady orchid, or Dendrobium Margaret Thatcher. Says here that they represent the strength and determination of the Iron Lady throughout her political career.
Boobook: I wonder if they’ll ever make a Dendrobium Tony Abbott.
A Becky Lee: Well, he’d have to visit first, but they could make it with huge petals on the sides for his giant ears.
A Becky Lee: And big pistils for all the vile rubbish he spurts out! They can make it a garish orange with red splotches too, just like his face when he gets all mad.
Boobook: It can be carnivorous too, so that the mouth is big and catches flies. Since he’s got a big mouth anyway.
