S for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7: S is for sizzling sausages!



'Shroom is a stretch but the letter S is stretchable.

Imagine my surprise when I opened a basket of 'shrooms and found this one branded by its shadowy doppelganger. Shutter clicked and the photo was sent to several who roared with laughter and said, 'Did you try to sell this 'shroom on e-Bay?'

Unfortunately, I'd already sauteed and consumed it so I  may have swallowed all chances for small wealth. Sob.

What would you have done?

Crikey, how weird is that? But I think I'd have done the same as you... I love mushrooms!

Great word - very tasty :-)

Gigi Ann said...

Knowing me, I probably never would have noticed and did just what you did, enjoyed it in a bit of butter.

it's terrible, but when I hear the term 'shrooms, halucinations occur.

ROG, ABC Wednesday team.

Wow. I love 'shrooms. But a 'shroom with a picture of itself on it - well, you did the right thing, you photographed the evidence, then ate it. LOL
Great post for 's day.

how funny!

RuneE said...

At least you can sell the photo :-)

EG Wow said...

Hehehe. What would I have done? Eaten it! But I probably would NOT have been clever enough to have taken its photo first.

So funny! At least it wasn't the Virgin Mary or Jesus! I probably wouldn't have thought to take a photo of it, but would have sauteed it and forgotten all about it. Thanks for sharing! :D

Maybe it was 'shroom patterned overcoat. Yes hunger always wins, love 'shrooms.

Cildemer said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Like Joy said, hunger is the winner!

'srooms are tasty. I would have done the same.
But I thought someone offered on e-Bay a burgher with images one time. He had it preserved somehow and offered it for a substantial amount. Ah.. well!

Carver said...

That's a fun surprise and a good eye. I love shrooms and fear I'd be so busy getting them ready to go straight to my stomach I'd miss the doppelganger.

Paula Scott said...

I would've done exactly what you did!

Rajesh said...

Very strange.

Hildred and Charles said...

Love 'srooms, - love your new fractal photo, - beautiful colours.

Ann said...

so often I do the samwe thing, I eat the stuff and wished I have photographed it.

Mushrooms are my family's favourite.

magiceye said...

lol!
thank you for introducing the smiling 'shroom!!

Nanka said...

Love mushrooms and you have a fun post here!!

Amy said...

Sue, I think this is the most original post EVER! I haven't heard the term "shroom" in years - have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

Reader Wil said...

So shroom is either a mushroom or a horror movie! May be the former caused the latter! Your shroom is a bit scary!
I like your inventiveness! Your header is brilliant.

JayLeigh said...

LOL! That's pretty neat! :)

G.K. Asante said...

Very funny and a great S prompt entry. As always, well done.

Jay at The Depp Effect said...

Hahaha! That's an excellent find!!

I'd have done exactly what you did: photographed said 'shroom' and posted it on my blog!!

Isn't that what everyone does? LOL!

Beverley Baird said...

Got a real chuckle - what fun for S!
have a great week!

Cheryl said...

I'd have done just exactly what you did, except I'd have sliced it all up for a salad eating the 'shroom 'shroom last!

Love the new header.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

What a great "s" post!

Margaret Bednar said...

So glad you stopped to take a photograph. This is classic! Now I'm going to be eyeing all my mushrooms. LOL
