Er - people? Ahm - can I, maybe, briefly take your minds off the whole "Palin/Palin offspring (or not?)/Palin soon to be son-in-law is a foul-mouthed redneck" brouhaha and tell you about what else happened in the world? Like: really important things? Such as the accidental mushroom poisoning of famous Horse Whisperer author Nicholas Evans, who is is currently in hospital in Scotland after ingesting several specimens of potentially fatal Fool's Webcap.
Fool's Webcap - sounds nice, doesn't it? Sounds like a seventies' band with a habit of getting high on Fool's Webcap.
Looks really vicious:
Cortinarius rubellus. Now there's a good name for a kid. "Cortinarius - cum 'ere or ah'll smack yer!"
In German, this dangerous fungus is called Spitzgebuckelter Raukopf. Which would make a somewhat less attractive name for your offspring. Or a band, for that matter.
But maybe Sarah Palin might consider to use it for her redneck sprog ... oooh, will you shut up?
Why on earth anybody in their right mind would wish to eat those, I don't know. They have "kill, kill" written all over them. And while I do feel sorry for Mr Evans and wish him well, I'm afraid I also have to say that he is not a very clever man.
