The Creeping Horror (of Mushroom Sauce)

, Giant Mushroom Baffles Experts in Congo:

BRAZZAVILLE (Reuters) - A giant three-tiered mushroom which measures a meter (yard) across and was found in the tropical forests of the Republic of Congo has left experts in the capital Brazzaville scratching their heads.

'It's the first time we've ever seen a mushroom like this so it's difficult for us to classify. But we are going to determine what it is scientifically,' Pierre Botaba, head of Congo's veterinary and zoology center, told reporters on Thursday.

For the love of God, man! Have you not read any Lovecraft?!? I'd offer stern warnings to these men, but I fear it is already too late. They have already meddled in things man was not meant to know, and probably already had their souls eaten by Yog Sathoth, too.

For the curious, however, Neil Gaiman offers a recipe for Giant Congo Mushroom Sauce.
