*facepalm*

It is a very bad pun. And extremely typical of a florist. I pass a "Little Shop of Flowers" when I go to one of the facilities I support, it's in Brooklyn.

I dare you to beat that for tasteless.

I know one called "Oops a Daisy" which is pretty bad! :)

I'll see your "Oops a Daisy," and raise you one "Petal Attraction."

I believe that was actually the name of her flower shop in the Grell Green Arrow series, wasn't it?

That's been the name of Dinah's florist shop since at least the early 1970's.

Oh, I'm pretty sure they reference it in a Secret Origins issue. I thought you were just stunned by the horrid pun and reference to Ollie.

Dude, this is comic book fandom. Of course we care!

I guess I should explain. I knew that was the name of Dinah's flower shop, but it just took me this long to realize it was a pun and I feel ashamed I didn't notice because I'm usually good with puns. It's more a facepalm at myself than at the writer's creativity.

Yeah, I agree, it's pretty groan-worthy! :)

Yes, but wasn't that back when she was involved with DC's own Robin Hood, making it a blatant if inside joke?

That's what I thought, I just never noticed the pun until now. So I feel stupid :)

I don't think Sherwood Florist is a new invention -- I believe it's the florist Ollie and Dinah ran together way back in the day.

Yeah, but that's why it's facepalm-worthy - this Dinah has no connection whatsoever to archery or Robin Hood types. Dinah Laurel naming the shop that was a statement about her relationship with Ollie. It's meaningless and weird as just something Dinah Drake's parents came up with.
