Rude mushrooms!
« on: May 21, 2023, 0156 UTC »
I got a pizza today, sausage, mushrooms, and peppers. I opened the box and said, "Hello, mushrooms!", not a peep out of them. I tried again, no response. Why do Zeeky's mushroom's talk and the one's from the local pizzeria don't? Is it something about him that makes them open up to him? Is he the Doctor Phil of the fungal world? If anyone has a clue, please let me know. I thank you.

Could be a basic instinctual response to the threat of being eaten.

It couldn't be that, Zeeky eats them by the handful, yet they still talk to him. It's perplexing. I wonder if his toenail fungus talks to him?

Zeeky and the Pig Farm are, quite clearly, wired into the Wood-Wide Web, and can receive and interpret fungal bio-electrical signals:

Got some Mongolian Beef today. Chock full of mushrooms of various species. Not a peep out of any of them. Of course, Mongolia is steppe country, not a lot of trees, but plenty of grass. And cattle and their droppings are a primary vector for the type of mushroom Zeeky says talk to him. Mycelium are mycelium and roots are roots, ergo, these mushrooms are capable of speech, but they're still not talking. I may have to try water-boarding them?

I feel like Dr. Benway perhaps holds the answers...

You want 'talking mushrooms' ??


I am satisfied just to eat them, when I can afford them....

Talk is not necessary...
