Fungi Overlords

Yeah, it's funny when the fungi take over ants and make them climb up trees and then pop out of the top of the ant's head. But when it spreads to elephants I think there are public health responsibilities.
This poor elephant was infected in Spain, whilst on holiday and with the rapidity of modern travel, it will not be long before it spreads. Inoculate your elephants today, people!!!
Sadly it may be too late for the American elephant whose condition is so advanced that their mouths may not be accessible.

Be honest: most of the costumes for Riddled on Ice are going to be big mushrooms, aren't they?

The stage for these games of love is usually a large flat stone that is coated with a thin, slimy layer of diatoms and over which the water occasionally purls besides.

Those diatoms aren't inexpensive, you know! ...and the games weren't bad - the Russian judge was bought.

This brings to mind the description in "The Forever War":
With a good coat of paint, a Tauran might be able to disguise himself as an ambulatory mushroom.

Blue Öyster Mushroom.
If this is a reference to Psilocybe cubensis a.k.a. the Blue Meanie, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Wikiweedia informs me that The name Psilocybe [...] translates as "bald head".

tigris said...

So Psilocybe cubensis = "bald blockhead?" I can see why you'd disclaim all knowledge, but the beard kind of gives he game away. When publishes its twin studies we'll know it isn't even trying to hide anymore.

Smut Clyde said...

Also missing yesterday's Rhinograde update, even though that was probably what broke Blogger in the first place.

Evangeline van Holsteren did say something about "Fucking made up mice" but I thought she was talking about the hobby show.

Also, I have found people in my house who say they are my family. I HOPE BLOGGER IS HAPPY

mikey said...

That's weird.

I got home a little while ago AND THERE'S NOBODY HERE!!!

Where did they go?

Will they be coming home?

Smut Clyde said...

Also where are mikey's pants?

mikey said...

God DAMMIT.

I had 'em when I left Mountain View.

Sure enough, I don't have 'em now.

It's not that big a deal to get up from the parking lot. But the trip to Walgreens did NOT go well
