Hahahahahahahahahah……:-)

I stared blankly at that comment for a long while, and then laughed so hard that milk shot out of my nose. And I wasn’t even drinking milk at the time…

The police need to do more to stop this boring, mindless, stupid vandalism.

The short one of the right looks like my old Meth dealer. But it can’t be him, he’s doing a long stretch in prison.

Oh Gods! Perhaps he’s escaped…….

I too, like Pooks, would like to know what type they are, as overnight they have sprung up on my backyard (near old stump of a tree). Fluorescent yellow. never had them before on my lawn.

How quickly will they kill someone, if I was to make a “steak and mushrooms” pie and gave it to people that I don’t like?

Rule of thumb: Mushrooms with evil faces and answer to names like Deathcap, Destroying Angel, or Harbinger of Organ Failure are definitely delicious but malicious. Smiling mushrooms are okay, but only if their eyebrows are pointing up. If their eyebrows are point down, be wary >:-)

Maybe Eggyolk Fieldcap (Bolbitius vitellinus)? They can vary in shape and yellowness so sometimes it’s hard to tell.

Possibly young Yellow Houseplant mushrooms (Leucocoprinus birnbaumii)? It’s an introduced species

If so, don’t eat them as they are potentially poisonous.

We have slime moulds in our back yard at the moment, which is a little funky but lead to a conversation where my spouse, who was unfamiliar with slime moulds, accused me of somehow causing them by doing something dodgy with chemicals and/or weird craft related materials.
