Does anyone else think this ad is really bizarre?

giant white mushroom.... could be dried out for decoration...... not for food, could be poisonous....$5 ..... still growing........

That is one big 'shroom. I can picture what the sellers where thinking...

"Hey mama, did you see how big that there mushroom's gettin'?"

"What'd y'all reckon we should do with it?"

"Dun sell it is what we gon' do!"

Why would you sell a random plant that's growing in your yard? I would just as soon throw it away if it's bothering you that much. It seems like this could be a situation where the people are really hard up for money and are selling everything they can possibly live without.

Furthermore, they don't even seem to know what species it is, since they said it could be poisonous. Like anyone would buy that thing to eat...

That would be the ugliest decoration in the world. This ad made me giggle.
