Maybe you should get a bouquet of these things for your ex-spouse, or mother in law!

The University of Washington Biology Department says the corpse flower that reached the peak of its smelly bloom early Thursday will die in a few days.

The flower blooms only once every five years, and attracts pollinating insects with the smell of rotting meat.

This is a huge event for botanists, and attracts people from all over the world.
