I've Got A Fungus Twice As Big As My Head!

Yesterday evening I came in from the hayfield and glanced out the living room window and noticed something stuck on the side of the giant maple tree on the West side of our house, I couldn't really figure out what the hell I was seeing so I went out there with my antique digital cramera. (Crameras are much better than cameras... more features) Anyway this is what I saw... up on the side of the tree about 9 feet up, growing out of a knot... this enormous fungus/mushroom thing. It's gotta be like 16 inches across or more. It's HUGE.







Here. Here's a pic back aways from it some so you got some scale.






Pretty weird eh? I don't know nuthin' 'bout fungi, so I can't really name it or nothing... but I CAN tell you this... it get's weirder.

As I was taking the pictures off the camera, I noticed something in one of the shots... I zoomed in, tweaked it a touch and this is what I saw.















Yeah... now if that ain't Abe Freakin' Vigoda's face right there on my tree fungus, I'll kiss your butt for a month of Sundays cousin. I've got a message in to the National Enquirer right now.


Hey... it can't always be Jesus or Elvis. Sometimes you get Abe.

Careful now, people will be coming from the far corners of the world to pick a piece of your fungus for Abe's healing powers.

That last picture looks a little "Fish"y to me.

But where's the rest of his body? Was he eaten by the fungus?

Just tell me you didn't slice it up and fry it with butter.

You're so lucky! All of my fungus is between my toes and looks like Bea Arthur.

(I kid! My feet are delightfully fungus-free. As far as you know.)

Let's see now, did you just make a "tea" outa some of the "shroom" or did ya grate off a little and smoke it? I'm gonna send this one to the White House for investigation.....

ROFLMAO.

I have a tree that gets the same fungus, though I've never seen a face in mine, I must not be as lucky...or blessed...or cursed...

Greenmare said...

it would be better if Abe was wearing......... "the HAT", but still, it's pretty good.
