Quiz: Do you know your fungi?

A mushroom is not a mush, nor is it a room. It is a fungus.

A toadstool is not a toad, and it is not a stool. It is a fungus.

And as Matt Groening informed us in his wonderful book School Is Hell (he knew: he went to the same school that I did), a fish stick is not a fish, nor is it a stick. It is a fungus.

Now, in the spirit of the quizzes that once appeared on the Brunching Shuttlecocks, we here present a list of twenty things that may or may not be fungi. Can you sort them out?

  1. After 5 years it’s clearly not worth fixing the form, but could you post the answers in the comments? Just out of bizarre interest.
