Against All Morels
It’s hunting season and I couldn’t be more disgusted. You see pics of them everywhere and hear stories of finding “the big haul.” When I see the pictures I have to look away. I just don’t get it. What’s the big deal about morel mushrooms?
Some people sell them on the side of the road for up to $25 per pound! People (who obviously have too much time on their hands) spend DAYS walking through the woods “hunting” the fungus. I can only imagine the hunting call – “hear mushie, mushie, mushie!”
Now, before you jump all over me – yes I have tasted morels. I do like most mushrooms – but these ugly, human brain-looking chunks of whatever it is are just too grotesque for me to look at – much less eat. So good luck on “the hunt” this weekend you morel militia. You can have my serving! Blech!
