My cousin is a fungi


According to the phylogenetic tree, the groups most closely related to animals are slime moulds and fungi. We share about 30 percent of our DNA with mushrooms and toadstools, far more than we share with plants!

Well, how can it possibly be,
In the phylogenetic tree,
That mushrooms and mould
(Or so I’ve been told)
Are closely related to me?

Could Have Been Verse

Could Have Been Verse is a book of nonsense. This stuff isn’t rare. It’s certainly not well done. And to call it poetry would be an insult to the medium. Order your copy now:

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
