I am also delighted to announce that someone has found, photographed, and posted at found_objects proof that I was not merely engaged in a homo-erotically pornographic hallucination when I saw, several years ago, a fungus shaped like a human penis. The one that I found growing in my front yard was gray, smooth-skinned and about eight inches long, so it was a bit different from the one flutttergirl discovered, but this photograph is nevertheless solid (or turgid, if you will) evidence that penis-shaped fungi do exist. Because I did not have a functioning camera at the time, I was unable to provide the proof that I had seen this example of nature's playful manifestation of healthy ribaldry. Those who doubted me can now... sit on it!
A hint of mugginess entered the air today, and the gray clouds which crowded the evening sky are expected to bring thunderstorms, perhaps for the next two days. I anticipate them with relish.
