vertical line A nice story:

A story, much favoured by tour guides, and as such highly suspect, is that in this line Shakespeare was also making a joke at the expense of the Rose Theatre. The Rose was a local rival to his Globe Theatre and is reputed to have had less than effective sanitary arrangements. The story goes that this was a coy joke about the smell. This certainly has the whiff of folk etymology about it, but it might just be true.

In Texas they have what they call Turd Blossoms.  Flowers that grow right out of the cowpies.

Maybe that would be a better reference.  Since it is all, everything good and evil alike, it would be more inclusive to call Buddha a Turd Blossom rather than a Rose.

If you cannot love the whole thing, maybe its love for you will be just as conditional.
