Okay, so those of you who know me know that I have a list of things that creep me out. Weird as it is mushrooms creep me out, in a walk by, shiver and maybe gag a bit. Summer and fall back east were awful. A couple of weeks ago after the monsoon, there was a crop that grew up on the tree lawn of the shopping lot next door and I spotted them on the way home and stopped to look and make myself feel uncomfortable.
So I offer to you this picture of an extremely gross mushroom/fungus growing in Lincoln Park, NYC.
Only click if you haven't eaten yet. Dear god, it is so gross. I would be totally poking it with a stick if I saw it in person.
