Actually, it is called a Stinkhorn. And it is growing on our farm, EEEEWWWWWW. My brother and his wife came across one this weekend along their fence row by their house, by nightfall, it was gone. He just emailed me and said there were two more this morning. YUCK!! At dinner yesterday, my sister-in-law was trying to tell me what it looked like, without telling me what it "looked" like. She finally just leaned over and whispered, "it looked like a giant penis growing out of the ground!" Again, my response is "YUCK."
