Wrong kind of grass.

Neat though.


#3

I had an apartment that kinda had the same thing happen…

ETA: It did not smell amazing at all.


#4

Craigslist ad: I will be away for two weeks, need a neighbor to come and water my rugs while I’m gone.

Austrian artist using Persian rugs for an installation at a Korean art exhibit in the UK. Huh?

Had some mushrooms sprout from an old door mat once. True fact. Disgusting, it was.


#7

They really tie the room together.


#8

You didn’t have to taste it!


#9

I’ve seen installations that use grass indoors before and they did smell but it was not pleasant.

Bleah! Actually a repairman from one of the ex-USSR states visited, and actually tasted one of the other mushrooms in our yard. Fortunately he did so while leaving, so I could go back in the house and be physically appalled.
