    You be so stupid you go to hell. That’s what.

    Climate Change deaths.

    Climate Change deaths.

    Maybe. But I bet they died with Covid, and just one more booster would have saved them. And stopped global warming.

    If they were dried then mixed in to a dish to disguise them then the consumer was not guilty of stupidity.
    Except perhaps they should already have wary of eating anything prepared by a certain person.

  5. Cassie of Sydney says:

    You don’t start feeling ill until about 12 hours after consuming them, and then the symptoms are ghastly, leading to organ collapse and death.

    Independent thinkers at the ABC.

  7. Boambee John says:

    What happens? Perhaps Their ABC might reflect on the name “Death Cap”?


  8. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Sounds like a TikTok challenge, one even more Darwinian than eating Tide Pods.

  9. C.L. says:

    Escaping suspicion in these cases is difficult – as poor Richard Roose learned the hot way.

  10. NFA says:

    It’s all ‘shrooms’, all the way down.

  11. cuckoo says:

    Victorian government is probably drafting a ban on mushroom foraging as we speak. Because it disturbs native habitat and upsets the Great Rainbow Serpent’s dreaming. And if it only saves one life!

  12. NFA says:

    what cuckoo says: 10 August, 2023 at 5:02 pm

    It is already illegal to wander off designated forest “paths”.

  13. jupes says:

    Apparently, the ex-husband – son and nephew of the three dead people – reckons she tried to poison him previously. Not looking good for the cook at the minute.

  14. NFA says:

    @ jupes

    Time to start a TikTok influencer page, Kill and Cook Your Own

    There used to be things like ‘cook books’ once!

    Best I saw was the Weekly Times Farmers Handbook.

  15. Rohan says:

    A tomb with a shroom?

  16. Rabz says:

    What happens when you eat one?

    The cause of your subsequent untimely demise becomes the source of much speculation in our beloved braindead lamestream meeja.

  17. Christine says:

    It should be the trendy – “Everything you need to know, before you try one”

  18. Old Lefty says:

    The headline reminds me of a warning I once saw on a packet of peanuts: ‘Warning. This product may contain nuts.’

    No, I am not making this up. It really was on the packet!

  19. Roger W says:

    Well, a peanut is actually a legume, not a nut!
    So, if you are allergic to nuts…

    Can lead to interesting stories, like this one I saw this week:

    Woman ‘left with no choice’ but to buy every packet of peanuts on budget flight (7 Aug)

    Leah Williams, 27, has had a lifelong allergy to the food. She asked staff on her Eurowings flight from Dusseldorf in Germany to London, to announce her allergy to passengers and request they do not buy or eat peanuts during the flight.

    The staff allegedly dismissed her concerns which led to her forking out £144 to buy all 48 packets of nuts onboard.

    The cost was almost three times the price of the £50 airfare she paid for her budget flight.

    The design worker from Hampshire claims she told staff: “Please do count them and I will pay for them all, seeing as you have left me with no choice.”

    Actually quite a practical and innovative solution to what is a terrible danger. Well done lady. I don’t know what you can do in such circumstances – people will often help someone like her out, but then there’re always churlish types who would take delight in buying and eating a pack of peanuts in front of her. So I think that was the best compromise she could do.
