I Hate Mushrooms!

It seems like everyone I know likes or love mushrooms. Personally, I never understood why since they are as tasty as rice cakes.

Why am I one of about ten people in the world who dislike mushrooms aside from their tastelessness of course?

Well about 25 years ago, when I was around 7 or 8, I was walking through my neighbors yard just wandering around the neighborhood. I came across two big mushrooms. I thought at the time that since all mushrooms are poisonous, I would do my neighbor a favor and destroy them kind of like getting rid of weeds. I kicked both of them really good and then tossed them in their trashcan. I then went on my way back to the house.

That night as I slept, I had a dream, er, soon to become a nightmare that I repeating what I just mentioned. Only this time, as I attempted to kick up the mushrooms, they opened up like they were a man-eating plant. As they devoured me, I woke up instantly and that was the end of that. I decided from then on, I would leave the mushrooms alone.

Not this gal! I'm totally on board with your hatred for mushrooms. In fact I just started a blog about it called "Hold The Mushrooms." It talks about how much I hate mushrooms and other types of food. Here's a link to it, please comment!

Mushrooms are evil. They are neither plant nor animal and not part of the natural food chain. They do not eat sunlight or other plants or animals. They grow in the dark and feed off of feces which makes them STRONGER! I think their spores get into people who eat them and take over the person to make them eat more. And spread their influence. Hmmm....maybe they are extraterrestrial in origin? :) Plus they taste like crap. -eric

You're not the only one. There are many of us out there who see mushrooms for what they really are. Evil, evil, evil. Stay away from them if you can, because they WILL grow out of your dead body (after they've killed you). And yes, they're probably extraterrestrial.
