Why the hell do people eat that blistering rot in the first place? It's fungus, guys, it's the literal fruit body of death and decay. Eat stuff that grows from something that's alive, like an apple from a tree or a grape from a vine. Don't eat stuff that grows out of dead things, like rotten leaves or a pile of dung. Would you eat something you found growing out of a corpse? What's the difference?
