They're back....


I first reported finding these odd shaped mushrooms two years ago on my blog and they are back. Actually, they are called a Stinkhorn, and they like to grow on our farm. 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."

OK- those do look like a penis growing out of the ground with some kind of severe infection. I'd stay away from it. I mean- it could be catchy. :)

You ladies are messing around with some screwed up penii. Maybe if there was a "Lobster Man", then this would be his penis.

Can we rename them the fuglyshroom or necrotizing doggy lipstick shroom? I'm so grossed out. They look like demon fingers poking out from the ground.
Came over from Meatbag's! I can only imagine what it's like to work with that guy!

I'm just looking at the little picture and my stomach is not sure it wants to see it bigger.

OK, I came upon your blog by recommendation. The first thing I see is "YUCK"! I love it. It does look oddly like a penis that had fallen into an inkwell after a long night of auditioning for a raunchy porno!
