How Creepish is This Mushroom?

Some people find the face of the Virgin Mary imprinted on their French toast.

Some people read the messages in a cup of tea leaves.

I find signs like this in my sink when I leave an old spaghetti bowl to soak.

    Wow, Skelator is in your sink! Where are He-Man and Duncan???

  2. Karen says:

    Well, if it wasn’t perishable, it would make a cool scrapbooking stamp…ahem.

    In the words of Ernest, “EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWEEWWWIE”

    By the power of Grayskull! (That goes in the faux swears list. Did you see Hot Fuzz? They said it a couple of times and it cracked me up.)

    Woah!!! Wild find. Great shot too! It would have been scooped up and in the bin before I noticed it if it was here. Not because I’m ultra tidy….just ultra unobservant! (is that a word?)

  6. A skeleton! AAAAHHH! It is a sign that you should not do your dishes today! Yup.

  7. Liz says:

    definitely avoid all dishes. I’m with Sheen.

    How timely! I went to AC Moore yesterday, and it’s festooned with Halloween stuff.

    I’m not all that impressed when someone finds Mother Teresa in the peanut butter or Jesus on the kitchen cabinet (both true stories). If, say, George Clooney’s likeness was found on a piece of toast or something, then I’d get really excited.

    too fuuny is thaton all mushrooms

  10. Tonya says:

    Ewww, I would never have caught that. Good eye for sure!!

  11. Melissa says:

    Save it. Hang it on your door for Halloween and then you won’t have any trick or treaters. Nasty little beggars… 😉

  12. Liz says:

    Okay. That’s a little weird.

    Evil Mushroom!

  13. mother of the wild boys says:

    That is just plain freakish!

  14. Awesome Mom says:

    You should sell it on eBay!

  15. Kimberly says:

    I’m laughing at the comments as much as at the post! Hilarious!

    Creepy! It reminds me of the time we found letters on our freshly died easter eggs. They had been dried on a cookie cooling rack and some of the die had come off in certain areas. When we were putting them away, my brother discovered that the only letters represented were the letters in the word ‘HELP’.

  17. Beth says:

    Oh dear. It’s an omen. Let me know when I can come over and help with an exorcism!! LOL!!

  18. Sketchy says:

    So, does Death stalk you frequently?

  19. Carrie says:

    So that’s what you get for leaving dishes in the sink?? Okay, I’ve learned my lesson!

  20. bon says:

    Oh hai! In UR sink
    creepin’ out UR salad bowls.

  21. that’s because mushrooms are icky gross! The skull of death is telling you to avoid digesting fungi from hereon and forevermore!

  22. PS: Would your dad be interested in sharing his skin cancer story for use in an upcoming educational book on skin cancer?

    I remember your sister Heather saying something about it on Margaret’s blog back in 2005/2006.

    My blog is

  23. Irene says:

    Hmmm . . . I think it looks like a ‘shroomy Darth Vader!

  24. Farm Wife says:

    Yikes!! Here’s hoping fungi are not omens. It’s very ‘Punisher’ isn’t it?

  25. Jessica G. says:

    Okay, someone quicker than me already left a reference to HeMan’s nemesis so I’ll just have to be content with saying that is a pretty creepy ‘shroom.

  26. Alice says:

    I’ve stopped lurking just to comment on this one! That is sooooo funny – Lord only knows what would turn up in my sink with the dishes that have piled up over the last 24 hours. Yikes.

  27. Qtpies7 says:

    I cracked up! Too funny!
    I agree, sell it on ebay! Someone made over $500 selling ketchup packets from McDonalds and some sporks and napkins from various fast food places! LOL Just clean out your van and get a sellin’!

  28. Karl says:

    Oh my word. That is exactly why I don’t eat mushrooms. Because they are creepy.

  29. With 8-years of Catholic school under my belt, I have been rigorously trained to find Mary’s face in nearly an food product, even ice cream. Although these days I’m just happy when said food product has not formerlly been in someone else’s tummy.

  30. Lei says:

    Yep. That’s definitely a skull. You’d better hide before death finds you! Bwahahahaha!

  31. Well, my three boys personally found this mushroom skull to be AWESOME. That was their word.

    Great weird, vision you had there. 🙂

  32. Jenny says:

    Ewwww! That mushroom looks deadly! 😆

  33. Shalee says:

    Just because that is a mushroom, I would go “Ewww.”

  34. geminishadow says:

    I hope you get a chance to update soon! Every time I check to see if you have I find the “shroom of Doom” staring back me!!!

  35. Rachel says:

    That is one seriously evil looking mushroom. I’d never be able to get my kids to try mushrooms if they all looked like that!

  36. It’s the sauce that clinches it. It would not have looked as cool if it had been in the remnants of an alfredo or clam sauce.

  37. eeewww! And hilarious!

    @ Susie K,
    By the power of Grayskull is originally from a children’s comic book/ tv cartoon, where the princely hero turns into super hero He-Man and gets a really cool tiger and sword when he screams that line. You have got to check out the program sometime- can’t believe I used to really enjoy that when I was young. Grayskull is the castle of the super-hero.

  39. Jen M says:

    Whoa! I would mince that thing UP! Yikes!

    Creepy mushroom face!

    In a strange bloggy coincidence Superhero Journal posted a photo challenge requesting “mysteriously appearing faces” the very next day. I don’t think either of you read each other’s blogs so it seems to have been a true coincidence!

    Hope you don’t mind if I post a copy of your picture at my site as I failed in finding a mysterious face of my own!

  41. lainakay says:

    … unless finding the face on your blog counts…
