Trumpet Flower of Baako Hejji.png
Odd, rare botanical specimen from the isolated, vaguely Arabic mountain kingdom of Baako. Resembling an ordinary yellow tulip, it generates music somehow. It's from the obscure, short-lived 1935 comic strip Hejji by Dr. Seuss. Adventurer Hejji comes to Baako, and plucks the flower, not knowing the ruler of Baako had promised it as a love gift to his intended. This gets him thrown to the wombats.

The Mighty One, the ruler of Baako, later makes it up to Hejji, touring him around and showing off his wealth, including "the best orchestra in Baako, they do nothing but play to my poultry. Makes the chickens wonderfully tender!"
