Remember one side makes you larger, and the other makes you small!

In reality I think both sides make you dead.

And the ones your mother gives you don't do anything at all!

Yes, that looks like an Amanita. Definitely not for eating.

This put an idea in my head.

I wonder if I could construct a pop-up card with a zig-zaggy strip connected to each side, and with mushrooms placed between the zigs and the zags that compress into a stack when closed and stretch into a mushroom-laden log when opened. It might be too puffy in the middle, but this idea will not go away until I try.

Spelling corrected from up there ↑.

I think Ann is right. That looks like Aminita Muscaria....they are hallucinogenic and mildly toxic and were used by the Berserker tribe of Scandinavia before battle

Thus the origin of the word berserk.

Or so I've been told.

"Fruiting Bodies"

...as in "mushrooms are the fruiting bodies,or reproductive structures, of some types of fungi."

Today's picture of two-of-a-kind sort of fits with the male/female/open marriage discussion going on

I especially liked the way yesterday's orange surprise was framed with acorn, twig, green leaf, and decaying fallen leaves all present as part of the part of the ongoing life cycle.

Just watch out for the mushroom that makes you into a size 12, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Call them Tod and Mort.

The brightly colored mushrooms remind me of the Chinese dance in Fantasia. The mushrooms become coolie hatted men.

These mushrooms can defeat the Green Lantern!

Bissage said...

Magic mushrooms, Donovan, and an oddly persistent genital rash (that's none of your business, thank you very much) has caused me, against my will, to think strange thoughts about "HISTORY: What It All Means, And What It Is, Too."

You will find the earthly manifestation of the incorporeal jumble of my disordered thoughts . . . PRECISELY HERE.

Ban the Bomb, man.

I'm just mad about Saffron.
Saffron's mad about me.
I'm-a just mad about Saffron.
She's just mad about me.

They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow.

I'm just mad about Frontine.
Frontine's mad about me.
I'm-a just mad about Frontine.
She's just mad about me.

They call me Mellow Yellow.
They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow.

Born high forever to fly
Wind velocity nil
Wanna high forever to fly
If you want your cup our fill

They call me Mellow Yellow.
They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow.

Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze.
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase.

They call it Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow.

Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight as adapted into a lullaby:

Goodnight sweetheart,
Well, it's time to go,
Time for sleeping, don't you know?
Time for bed and time for rest,
Goodnight sweetheart,
You're the best...
/repeat /repeat /repeat

Cowardly fungi

All the Dave Barry fans on this thread already know that Cowardly Fungi would be a good name for a rock band (WBANFARB, in Dave-speak.)

Lullaby

Shut up and go to bed
Put the pillow under your head
I’m sick and tired of all your worries

Shut up and say goodnight
Say your prayers and turn off the light
I’m sick and tired of all your sob-stories

Shut up and shut your eyes
No more histrionics no more college tries
Stop pushing stop shoving stop straining

Shut your mouth and button your lip
You’re a late night faucet that’s got a drip
All you’re doing is merely complaining

The excuse that you’re crazy is useless
You’re not biting you’re barking you’re toothless
But you're ruthless

Shut up and count some sheep
And do me a favor don’t bitch in your sleep
No more agony please no more sorrow

Shut up and catch some Z’s
Ice cream with a cherry plus big pretty please
I promise we’ll resume tomorrow…Goodnight
