Friday Fungus: Now what was it they said about mushrooms?

Today has not been a red letter day. Indeed, in the annals it will be one of the darker 24 hours. So you won't be getting profound deliberation on fungal wonders (although a pizza and best part of a bottle of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo have eased the darkness a little).

And they said it about mushrooms - kept in the dark and covered with shit. Except that's not true of course - and for mushrooms the lovely caps spring out from the smelly compost. Suffice it to say that I plan to be a fruiting head rather than a mycelium - I may get eaten but at least I'll see the daylight!
