Unlike a scrotal issue caused by a type of human papillomavirus that’s resulted in a rough and hard growth covered ballsack.
A bollockwort is
A beautiful orchid.
But did you know that the word orchid comes from the Greek orkhis, which means ‘testicle’?
Well, whoever thought to name this flower saw a scrotum.
They took one look at the orchid’s tubers
And thought ‘bollocks’.
The word wort comes from the Old English wyrt, which means ‘root’.
‘Orchid’ just sounds so much less ‘male genitalia’.
The next time I see a nice orchid I’ll compliment whoever owns it on their balls.
