Mushroom Joke

by John Ryan


A mushroom went into a bar and saw some algae at a table. He went up to one and said "You're lookin' all gal to me." She looked him over and said "And you look like a fun guy." and they took a liken to each other.

(I never said that mushroom jokes were going to be good. For this to elicit even a groan you have to think back to junior high biology when you learned that lichens are not one thing, but in fact they are the co-dependent relationship between fungi and algae).
