Inscrutable, Just Bloody Inscrutable,

hattip Andrew Bolt

Australian PM Julia Gillard today in Singapore will have an orchid named after her.

The binomial nomenclature of this particular variety is:-

Dendrobium bigibbum.

...which, of course, every keen student of Latin knows to mean something akin to 'gluteus maxima' to the power of ten or in Australian, just plain 'fat arse.'

God knows what the Singaporeans  would choose for Mr Slipper.

I hope its not variety "compactium".. she'll need a mathematician to work that one out.
