This bust-gut-funny story with video is making the rounds on the Internet today, and deservedly so.

Xi’an Up Close is an investigative journalism program which airs on China’s Xi’an TV. On June 17 they aired an exclusive on a “mystery mushroom” discovered by villagers in a small farming area from the city.

One villager who was apart of the “discovery” said, “When we dug down to about 80m deep, we fished out this long, fleshy object. It’s got a nose and an eye, but we have no idea what it is! Even our 80-year-old neighbour here says he has never seen anything like this before.”

The reporter from Xi’an Up Close then chimes in, “On this side, you can see what looks like a pair of lips,” she adds. “And on that side, there is a tiny hole which extends all the way back to this side. The object looks very shiny, and it feels really fleshy and meaty too.”

Oh dear… Watch the video below and all its hilariousness.

Masturbating man attacked by marauding mushroom feeder


 
It doesn’t say if the masturbator was also fed mushrooms. Or if he continued masturbating. Either way, it all sounds very John Waters.

Thanks Boag!

An accidental Google search (don’t ask) led me to a rather odd subculture/phenomena in Google images: cats and mushrooms. There’re cats pictured with Cremini mushrooms, Porcini, wild mushrooms and even the psychedelic kind. (I’m in no way endorsing ‘shrooming your cat, btw.)

According to an article on NPR’s website titled Mystery Solved: Why Cats Crave Mushrooms, cats are attracted to the glutamate chemical in mushrooms. Vets warn though, cats probably shouldn’t be eating the fungi. Some could poison them.

Oh dear lord. Mushroom gangs? And not even for Special mushrooms? What are they, like roving Tom Bombadil guys with curly mustaches that make French-guy noises and steal your Portobellos at night?

It is a great French autumnal tradition that furnishes an essential ingredient in some of the nation?
