The Fart of the Nun.

Not sure what on earth this bonnet looking fungus is on the left??

The other one is a puffball, or the latin name translates as an amusing 'wolf fart' :-) Whilst on a fungi foray, an Italian lady said that they new it as the 'fart of the nun' but I can't find any links to that on the Internet? Funny though, maybe nuns talc their butt and eat alot of sprouts??

I did read the other day that someone managed to convince some students to sniff up the puffball spores to get an hullicinagenic hit. However, they managed to sniff up so many they had the fungus growing on their insides affecting their breathing, eugh! Thankfully, some anti-fungal drugs cleared them up.
