So it actually could be worse

A friend sent a photo to me after reading about my backyard mushroom trauma. These are growing at the side of her house. Note I said "these" because there are dozens of them. It's a different variety of stinkhorn than the one that showed up in my yard, a variety with the unfortunate but clearly apt name of Mutinus Caninus or Dog Stinkhorn.

She lives only a few blocks away.

I am afraid.

Very afraid.

It's like Mushroom Armageddon around here.

Okay, the first one was really funny and fun to joke about but this one is just...so...wrong! LOL

Must be God's joke to the mushroom world.

Somehow, these are even more disturbing than the other photos. I'm going to have nightmares.

Hey, I'm not going to suffer alone.

And just to reiterate:

These are GROWING in my NEIGHBORHOOD.

I'm the one who should be having nightmares.
