Remember that Chinese news report that accidentally identified a vagina-anus combination sex toy as an auspicious species of mushroom? Apparently one street huckster in China was so taken with this imbroglio that he's selling artificial genitalia as rare "meat mushrooms" for up to $2,800.


A passer-by surreptitiously recorded his sales pitch, which mostly consisted of the (utterly discredited) news report playing on loop on a laptop (turn on YouTube annotations for English subtitles). When grilled by the giggling cameraman, the vendor retorted, "It's on the news. How can it be fake?" I'm guessing he wasn't offering taste tests. (Hey-yo!)
