    Bahahaha! I love it!

    I'm about to decorate my tree- first real tree I've had in over a decade. I think I'm going to look for some mushroom ornaments- thanks for posting!

  • Kristina says:

    LOVE the article!! i've always had an affinity for those mushrooms (their aesthetics, that is, not their hallucinogenic properties!). thanks for sharing :)

  • The Beast says:

    That's so interesting! I immediately thought of my favorite childhood Super Mario games and all the countless references to this mushroom. :)

    Merry Christmas, Englishes!
