Well, okay. Tropical plants flagrantly (fragrantly?) spreading their petals and waiting brightly for consummation may not be so scandalous. But look to the right. Two couples, different species, copulating carnally for all to see.

Here’s a closer look at one of the pairs “doin’ it”:

I guess it isn’t too surprising at a venue that sells Beer and Saki together.
