Spotted on Ishbadiddle: In an absorbent homage to Georgia O'Keeffe, Kotex has introduced "flowerful" new packaging for its pads of all sizes. ("Beautiful flowers outside, same great protection inside.")

A special scroll-over feature on the Kotex Web site reveals descriptions of each flower. Did you know, for example, that the "Cactus Dahlia" (Latin: Dahlia variabilis cactaceae) featured on the maxipad "originated in the Aztec culture" and is "a symbol of dignity, elegance and good taste"? You didn't? That's because you can't get past the use of the word "cactus" anywhere near the word "maxipad."
