THE BLOB, II

A poor unsuspecting person appears to have been swallowed by this odd man-eating mushroom. All that was left was his cap.

DC,

Okay, you had to bring the BLOB up. Like it’s some sort of joke. I watched the movie when I was 6 or 7. For yeares I couldn’t sleep in a room with a round, ceiling mounted light fixture . Had to sleep with my sheets all tucked up around me, so the Blob wouldn’t eat me. My mom told me not to worry “their are only blobs on the west coast.”

Unfortunately, I could read a map (but not understand sarcasim) and summers in Washington State with my grandparents (and the blob) terrified me.

I think we know where the bodies are buried in Daryl’s yard.

The only body likely to be found under that fungus is Jimmy Hoffa’s. I shot it today in Somerset, NJ.

Great fungi. I have to say, one of the amazing things about living in Mississippi was the fungi. Last year when we were looking at the biological kingdoms, we had an incredible number of colorful and exotic looking examples of fungi in our yard and little patch of woods. None that could have hidden Mr. Hoffa as adequately as this New Jersey specimen, but it was interesting to see how many different species we could identify.

Can you eat that thing?

(btw – Jimmy was ground into hamburger and served at the Red Fox)

I contacted the New Jersey Mycological Association and they identified as the edible Pleurotus ostreatus. One of their members is going to come harvest it.

I would, too.
But first –
who’s under the hat? 🙂

That’s amazing! Really quite beautiful in a grotesque way. Kind of Francis Baconesque.
