Shroom City

Shroom CityI came across this crop of mushrooms waiting to be harvested on 21-block Scarth St. when I was out for a walk this afternoon. It wasn’t the only cluster I saw either.

  1. I’ve had about 20 pop up in my front yard. It looks like a regular white mushroom; not a toadstool; as in the photo. Please don’t even make tea outta that shit!!

  2. Or, be a rebel, get down on your hands and knees and scarf that shit! I read most of these are non-poisonous, but like razor blades in halloween candy and pedophiles lurking in every parked windowless van, I think the urban legend is that these will kill you. Some are poisonous, some aren’t. I wouldn’t eat the ones on the lawns that have been fertilized tho, those’d be bad.

  3. These can lie dormant in the soil for years until optimum weather conditions (i.e. lots of moisture) bring them out.

  4. Lurkers! Mushroom embody all the most-noir attributes of human nature. Don’t touch, stay away. Get yours from Walmart today.
