Thank you msnbc for brightening up my evening. I like it when geeks get rude.
The phallic mushroom
Herpetologist Robert Drewes at the California Academy of Sciences is reportedly thrilled to have a 2-inch-long, penis-shaped mushroom from the African island nation of Sao Tome and Principe named in his honor, Phallus drewesii.
"He wasn't offended by it," says Jameson. "I mean, wouldn't it be cool to have a new species named after you?"
How can you not smile?
