who decided that mushrooms are food?

Who actually enjoys the taste of mushrooms? I'm not talking about portabello mushrooms, but the little tiny ones?

I really think that I'd rather see a cook spit on my food than put mushrooms in it.

I'll eat just about anything, including stuff that isn't supposed to be food, but mushrooms are the only food that i totally hate.

I love mushrooms! But I love them even more when they are drowning in gravy.

Trader Joes sells Marinated Mushrooms. They are quite good.

Morels are coming up here now and they are delicious, but expensive if you try to buy them

Boy, we just got out of Morell season around here, and it was fantastic. I am thankful for the many people that died to figure out which ones wouldn't kill me. Now the creepy bastard who first decided to try an oyster......FREAK!

How about the first person to drink cow milk? I'll bet is was on a dare, or just a perv.

What about eggs? I like vagina as much as the next guy, but chicken vagina? I don't trust it.

Probably whoever ate them and didn't die.

Personally, I'm more curious about the people who discovered certain things were poisonous, like toad stools.

if there's one thing that dave has taught us throughout the years, it's don't trust a chickens vagina.

Mushrooms are yummy.

Who's the lucky chap that first learned there are mushrooms for eating and mushrooms for weirding?

btw costanza: we joined on the exact same day

I lOOOVE Mushrooms. My ex-wife hated them. You know why? Because when she was a kid she saw the Japanese cult classic "Attack of the Mushroom People" and got totally grossed out.

More to the point, who woke up one day and saw the mushroom growing in a huge, steaming pile of horse manure and said, "Wow, would THAT ever be tasty!"?

I've often wondered this myself. I mean, if I really wanted to eat a fungus, I'd just pick the stuff out between my toes and put it on top of my pizza.

People with taste - well, IMO it really depens on the mushrooms whether or not it tastes good.
