Mushroom Bicycle Seat

Thought I would share this funny photo. While my wife was preparing a meal, she opened the box of shiitake mushrooms and handed me a mushroom that resembles a bicycle seat. Sort of like the celebrity potato chips one may find. Wonder if I can sell it for big bucks on EBay ?

Censored the name of the mushroom? Lol.

Will it fit a standard post mount?

The name of the mushroom wouldn't be censored if you remembered the second 'i' in shiitake.

So, we need more spellcheck and less censor?

Absolutely!

Here's the catch. The guy who wants to buy it is out-of-the-country and wants to pay with it with a cashier's check for way too much money drawn on the Bank of Zimbabwe. He'll want you to refund the excess via Western Union and will have an agent pick up the mushroom so nothing passes through USPS. The cashier's check will eventually bounce, of course so you'll be out however much money you refunded and you won't get to enjoy eating the mushroom either.

I love those awful movies such as, The Creature From The Black Lagoon, and the all time great, Plan Nine From Outer Space. How come they don't make movies like that any more?

Sauteed in olive oil? Deep fried? Uncooked in a salad?

Bela Lugosi had the goid sense to die during the making of Plan 9, lol. I think technology put an end to those movies. With computer graphics, there was no more need for cheesy monster suits with exposed zippers and poor stitching. And back then, all the terrible actors, who couldn't play dead, got to do those movies. Now they make the big buck "blockbuster" movies and are called "stars"...

This post makes me kinda disappointed there's not much in the way of novelty bike seats. Like, a bike seat shaped like an ass. Rest your ass on an ass!
