Personally I take this sort of colouring as a clear message: “If you eat me I am going to mess you up”
But others seem to like being messed up in the manner of these mushrooms.
Which got me thinking about all the people in our society who think all things are within the command of the laws which they will have written.
Plenty of them read here.
The ones who think that all things which scare or disturb them can be banned, or controlled. If just enough laws are passed and enough “examples” are set (meaning lives needlessly ruined).
And yet, and yet. Even if you passed all the laws and locked up all those who failed to comply (in facilities where the inmates still manage to get hold of drugs despite all the bars and locks and searches), even if you managed all that.
These things would still keep boiling out of the ground.
(Also, before anyone runs out and gobbles up mushrooms, if you don’t already know what you’re doing it is extremely dangerous and you can kill yourself. Not recommended)
