Could you identify a plant/weed for me please?

I have just seen a rather unusual plant/weed that I haven't seen ever before. I think it mite be in blooming, so I mite have seen it before once it's bloomed- I don't know ☺ It has a THICK stem, that branches off into two; a HUGE leaf, and a yellow 'stick' hidden by a green leaf thing.
Anybody know what it is? It might just be a common weed or something, but I haven't seen it before, and I am curious.

On the yellow 'stick', it looks like it has a lot of eggs on it that look like yellow eyes, with spots in the centre. Don't know if they are eggs, or a feature of the plant.

Thanks, Sam, UK ☺



Photo would be useful, but it sounds like some kind of Aroid. ?Skunk cabbage?

Is it growing in a damp place? I have a Skunk Cabbage and I'll take its photo tomorrow.
