August 12, 2007: Big-ass mushroom
yesman065 Sunday Aug 12 03:03 PM
Wow - micology is one of my most favored hobbies. I have seen a lot of oddly shaped and/or colored mushrooms in my day, but that thing is outrageously huge!

If you ate that mushroom your whole world would become the Smurfs or something like that.

Where's the hookah smoking caterpillar? There has to be a hookah smokin' caterpillar with a mushroom like that!

The Chiapas farmer that found it has been gathering these mushrooms for some time, trying to figure out how to infuse the super size gene into his pot plants

but I gather it's supposed to grow big, hence the appellation, "titans"?

I can't tolerate the fungus. It ranks slightly lower on my worst foods list than coconut, which is known to cause projectile vomiting.

I've seen giant puffballs in Colorado that approach that size. But they don't have the 'stem' part -- they're all 'cap'.

Talk about a confusing bar scene at the fungus dating spot.

But, i did find the mother of all mushrooms (of the variety people around here like to eat, don't ask me what they are) one year while mushroom hunting with my brothers and dad (which is actually fun!) I guess they ate it, i just kept the picture.

I bet North Korea's leader is eying that and thinking, "Maybe, I'll ask for that in my next round of nuclear talks/concessions." I also bet that the people of North Korea would suffer a lot less if they overthrew their 'leader' than if they had all the mushrooms in the world.

I shall not eat mushrooms...... unless:
SeanAhern Friday Aug 17 12:58 PM
Thank God for hyphens.
xoxoxoBruce Friday Aug 17 01:31 PM
Because of net filters or personal distaste?
SeanAhern Friday Aug 17 03:34 PM
Not sure I'd want to see an "ass mushroom". Then again, I'm sure I'd go look anyway...
xoxoxoBruce Friday Aug 17 03:46 PM
That's what I was hoping although some net filters are very, very tight.
