Pregnant stinky mushroom
This mushroom is pregnant, and constantly emits a foul odor that reminds you of mustard gas and roses. The stench makes you shudder to think what it might be pregnant with. With what it might be pregnant. And also what immortal hand or eye decided that 'eye' and 'symmetry' rhyme.
(In-game plural: pregnant stinky mushrooms)
|You put the pregnant stinky mushroom in your Familiar-Gro™ Terrarium.|
|It erupts into a pungent and angry-looking gravy fairy, which stares up and you and says "Oi!"|
|You decide to name her Basadora.|
- "Mustard gas and roses" is a reference to Kurt Vonnegut's 1969 novel Slaughterhouse-Five, in which the recurring phrase is used several times to describe foul-smelling things ranging from a drunk's bad breath to the stench of corpses.
- The last line of the description is a reference to William Blake's poem, "The Tyger," which appeared in his 1794 collection Songs of Innocence and of Experience. The poem's first stanza is:
- Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
- In the forests of the night,
- What immortal hand or eye
- Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
