A Contest, Of Sorts... Or Just a Comparison?

Mushrooms: From coast-to-coast and in places betwixt and between.

I know I've already posted today, but I was sort of prodded into this. This one is for Rob over at Dusty Lens and Maya at A Day in the Life. Maya posted a picture on her blog of some pretty impressive mushrooms the other day. (She also posted a photo of a really cool, but inedible, mushroom here.) I mentioned I had a similar photo. Then Rob jumped in and said he had one, too, and we should both post ours for comparison's sake with Maya's.

So, here are my 'shrooms. I took this picture a few weeks ago while I was out walking one morning. Okay Rob, pressure's on. Now it's your turn!

Oh I had some lovey Porcini mushroom ravioli in Paris does that count....huh???? It was so delicious. Sorry you all didn't get a taste. Oh, and I had some crusty French bread that DL LOVES and of course vin blanc, and lots of it. Ahhhhh!

NG said...

Oh. Those look... is disturbing or disgusting the word I'm looking for? Nice photo though!

D.C. Confidential said...

Virginia: Yum! Rub it in, why doncha?! ;-) Hey, I love crusty bread, too. I think you and me and DL need to get together one day and enjoy a loaf.

NG: It's okay. That's kind of why I didn't post it originally. I think disturbing is a fair word because when I looked at them again last night, I thought, "Those look like bad boobies. Ick."

I think their boobaliciousness is what makes them AWESOME! Maya's weren't nearly as dildoesque as yours are boobesque.

Maya said...

virginia: You are just mean! ;-)

janeanne and dc: I prefer boobesque myself! I wasn't really going for dildoesque when I posted them, nor was I looking for a competition of any kind! How did I get to be a part of this? ahhhhh

D.C. Confidential said...

JA: You crack me up! These mushrooms are pretty boobalicious. As for the dildoesque quality of Maya's, I can't comment on that. I'm not sure what her intent was. Although, when I photographed my fungi, I didn't notice they're boobesque quality until last night, when I posted the photo. Then I looked at it and said, "Oh my gosh! They look like breasts! Ahhhh!"

Maya: I think we have to lay this squarely at the feet of Rob. He started it.

Rob? Rob! Where are you? Hey, Rob. You got some 'splaining to do. And where's your mushroom photo, man?

Dusty Lens said...

Just posted my magical shrooms. The great blogger shroom-off!

So a mushroom goes into the bar to order a drink.
Bartender says "I hope you don't cause trouble here tonight".
Mushroom replies "what's the matter, I'm a fungi"!

Thank you, I'm here all week.

Rob: Excellent! And now the contest/comparison is complete. (Unless anyone else has some mushrooms they want to post.) And someone buy that man a drink! More humor like that and we'll have to start swapping jokes, too!

Maya said...

I am not entering in a joke contest as well. I'm not sure how I ended up in this one... ;-)

D.C. Confidential said...

Maya: Are you sure about that? I'll bet you have a good joke or two up your sleeve. As for how this got started, don't look at me. You're the one who posted the photo that kicked this off. Rob and I were only following your lead! ;-)
