People in France are going crazy for "Titan's Penis."

It's a flower, and it's huge, and it stinks.

The lines were around the block at The Plant Garden in the southern city of Nont.

This flower only blooms once every dozen years or so. And when it does, it grows to be about 10 feet tall.

The other attraction for the thousands of people who pay to witness it? It smells like rotten meat.

The real name of the plant is Amorphophallus Titanum but it's more fun for people to call it "Titan's Penis."
