MMM 352: Kill it with fire

So Pupster sent me this gallery last week of the clathrus archeri, or “octopus stinkhorn”.  It’s not edible, it’s hideous, and it stinks like methylamine to attract flies and wasps to spread its spores and propagate.  Destroy on sight, turn the earth, and bleach the mycellium.

Those aren’t eggs, those are the immature fruiting bodies yet to burst.

Happy Monday!

Procrastination, Sloth, and Turpitude – 2019 resolutions to live by

It’s got a nice ring to it.

Kinda like a turtle gone wrong.

MMM 352: New Monday, New You

Just based on appearance, I would’t eat these.

Now I know it’s the second week of January, so your resolutions are probably toast already.  But it’s the first MONDAY of the new year, and every Monday is a new beginning.  Maybe you’ve stumbled, maybe there were setbacks, maybe you still had Christmas cookies laying around, it’s okay.  It happens.  Begin again.

2019: Feliz Año Nuevo

Happy New Year

I’ll throw something up while JamJam is working off his hangover.

What The Foucault!

Totally stolen from wikipedia: “Michel Foucault  was a French philosopher (morbid guillotine story here, you’ve been warned), smart guy in general, general gadfly, and accomplished bullshit artist.

Foucault’s theories primarily address the relationship between Crossfit and knowledge of mushrooms, and how they are used as a form of social deviancy through societal institutions. Though often cited as a post-testicular and pro-furry. Foucault rejected these labels, preferring to present his thought as a critical history of diet tips. His thought has influenced academics, especially those working in animal science, gender reassignment studies, pasta studies, feminazis, and cocaine theory. Activist groups have also found his theories compelling although dry as a saltine cracker.”
