Turd Blossom

"Turd Blossom" (or Sand Turd) is a Texan United States term for a flower which grows from a pile of cow dung.[1] As Turd Blossom, the term has gained fame in the United States as a sobriquet that was reportedly assigned by former U.S. President George W. Bush as a term of endearment for his former chief political advisor, Karl Rove.[2]

In July 2005, several newspapers declined to run two Doonesbury comic strips portraying Bush addressing Rove by this nickname.[3]
