Mushroom madness

From a terrific New Yorker story about composting and other stuff:

  • “Each fungus looked spookier than the next: the shiitake, the golden oyster, the deer horn, the lion’s mane.”
(shiitake)

So shiitake was spookier than golden oyster … and way, way spookier than the lion’s mane.

(lion’s mane)

Decide for yourself.

And while you’re at it, decide to avoid this classic error: Each is more than the last, not the next.

The New Yorker has such brilliant editors and proofreaders, every mistake they make is more shocking than the next … er, uh … the last.
