When a village in China discovered a fleshy, mushroom-shaped object 260 feet underground, male masturbation aid definitely wasn’t at the top of their list.
In the rural part of Liucunbu whilst digging for a new well, villagers came across a “mysterious mushroom” that felt “meaty.” The curious villagers probed the object with their fingers and were left stumped, due to the mushroom’s odd holes and openings. This mysterious, fleshy and meaty object prompted a Chinese news program to investigate the object, which also surprisingly left the cast without an answer.
You can see the confusion on the villager’s faces throughout the video as they measured the object, poked at it and kept it floating in the water. In the video, the young reporter goes on to say,
On this side, you can see what looks like a pair of lips. And on that side, there is a tiny hole that extends all the way back to this side. The object looks very shiny, and feels very fleshy and meaty too.
After the video went viral through China and the rest of Asia, it turned out that the villagers and news station were the only ones clueless as to what this was. Before we move on, I’d like you to think about all the people that it had to go through before making it onto television… Editors, producers, her entire crew, everyone else at the station, etc.
To avoid looking like fools for falsely reporting a mushroom for a sex toy to … I don’t know… billions of people?, the station issued a statement that blamed only the young reporter for her mistake.
The station’s reasoning for the slip-up? She is “still very young and unfair to the ways of the world.”
Check out the hilarious video of the report below. You tell us if you and your entire news crew would’ve been confused! Brings a whole new meaning to the term fun-guy (/fungi).
