Pics! We demand pics! Otheriwse, everyone we tell we seen it won't believe we seen it. We can't show it to them so they cant tell people they seen it too.

/moral of the story is: extree big morels make you talk like a hick
2003-05-02 02:20:45 AM  
but were there smurfs?
2003-05-02 02:21:06 AM  
Yep, it's big, so clearly it needed to be destroyed.
Nice job Mushroom Dude!
2003-05-02 02:21:20 AM  
Did he eat it and grow really tall, gaining the ability to smash brick walls?

2003-05-02 02:22:18 AM  
Yeah, so what...

its the small purple ones I want.
2003-05-02 02:22:35 AM  
I've pulled a seven inch mushroom before. It came from my pants.

"Mushroom hunter plucks a monster"

Yeah, I just picked a monster too. At least I'm not gonna claim I found it in the woods.

So a mushroom walks into a bar...

and says "Folks, the next round is on me!" Everyone cheers. He buys another round and then a third, the place is packed, everyone's having a great time and the mushroom is the center of attention. Finally, after a few hours of living it up, the mushroom tires and says "OK, folks, I've had enough. I'll see you all later." and leaves.

"Man, that mushroom sure knew how to live it up!" said one bar patron.

"Yeah," said another. "He was a real FUN GUY!"

Ha ha! Get it? FUN GUY.

/runs away

Living here in Indiana, and not having been born in Indiana, I cannot fathom the strange and insane mushroom lust that seems to grip this state at this time of year. Everywhere I go people are talking about these damned mushrooms, and hunting them. I just don't get it, maybe I'm not hick enough...
2003-05-02 02:38:31 AM  
Shower_in_my_socks... shudder... I hear that one waay too much.
2003-05-02 02:38:44 AM  
"ga-nap ga-nap"
2003-05-02 02:38:45 AM  
I wanna be a mushroom hunter when I grow up.
2003-05-02 02:38:47 AM  
Anyone here ever eaten a morel? What do they taste like?
2003-05-02 02:39:50 AM  
Big mushrooms are creepy. Am I the only one who thinks that? Maybe it's just too many hours of battling the "Mycon" in Star Control 2...
2003-05-02 02:42:02 AM  
"Anyone here ever eaten a morel? What do they taste like?"

Pretty darn tasty, the best way to eat them is to bread them, deep fry them, then salt the hell out of them. Methinks the fantastic taste derives more from grease and salt than the spongy fungus.
Me and my hick (read hippy) parents used to hunt these every year.
p.s. Brownies make a great after mushroom treat.

You know that is a waste of bandwidth, they need to remove it and post porn. For the love of all that is holy, PORN OVER MUSHROOMS. Even the kids know that.

Ask a kid. I did and this is the transcript of my two year old proving the point. "hey kid, guns or butter?" "Guns." "Lard or steel?" "Steel." "Porn or Mushrooms?" "Porn, of course."

Geofreak, what, two Boobies links a day just isn't enough? Jeeze dude, how much time do you have on hand?

/pun sorta intended... sorry
2003-05-02 02:45:44 AM  
I'd rather have chicken wings.
2003-05-02 02:45:56 AM  

The Pkunks... now those guys are weird.
2003-05-02 02:53:56 AM  
Begoggle, but they weren't really mushrooms... although maybe they were consuming some...
2003-05-02 03:00:03 AM  
That's one big 'shroom.
2003-05-02 03:01:29 AM  
I pull my mushroom regularly.

2003-05-02 03:03:08 AM  
Eh.. I've pulled seven-pound mushrooms out of my dirty clothes basket
2003-05-02 03:12:23 AM  

Star Control 2 owned! Or maybe it was the first one that I played. I used to play that at a friend's house constantly in high school. It had the best sound effects to go along with everything all the different ships did. And the ships were just so damn cool. The Syreen stealing people. The auto-targetting teleporting Arilou. The little fighters from the Dreadnought that never seemed to work that well. The regenerating ball-shooting Mycon. I gotta go see if he's still got that Genesis around.

I am going morel hunting all this weekend. Yeah I know its a redneck pastime, but being an Appalachian-American, I can't resist.

FYI Anyone else who may be going morel hunting, please use bags that are netted nylon (onion or potato bags work great) to spread the spores while you hunt
2003-05-02 03:26:51 AM  
That dude is gonna get so high...
2003-05-02 03:38:09 AM

these schnozberries taste like schnozberries!

Big mushrooms are creepy. Am I the only one who thinks that?

No, I read Ray Bradbury's "Boys! Raise Giant Mushrooms In Your Cellar!" short story as a kid. It put me off mushrooms for nearly a decade, although I love them now.

Giant mushrooms are creepy.

Wow man, a seven pound shroom!
He'll be able to spend months playing this game

And the guy is actually brave enough to eat a seven pound mushroom? Man, if I found a 20 ton cow (or equivalently sized one.. I'm too lazy to do the math right now), I sure as fark wouldn't eat it.
2003-05-02 04:51:25 AM  
Do you use bird-shot or buck-shot when hunting mushrooms?
2003-05-02 04:52:32 AM  
Jesus H. Christ on a rocketsled; last time I checked morels were selling for $40.00 per pound (they're almost worth it, too). That's like finding 280 bucks just lying there on the ground. I found a normal-sized morel in the woods this past weekend; I'm trying to get some spores off of it before I eat it.

One nice thing about the morel is that it's got a very distinctive appearance, and there are no poisonous or inedible mushrooms that can be confused with it.
2003-05-02 05:53:43 AM  
are you sure it's only $280? I remember some giant mushroom selling for like $30k on ebay
2003-05-02 06:14:04 AM  
Was it a magic mushroom?
2003-05-02 07:08:36 AM
