Spongebob Squarepants Mushroom

There’s a protein called Sonic hedgehog, a trilobite called Han solo, and now a mushroom called Spongebob Squarepants. This shroom has a fruity-odour and a sponge-like structure, and when squeezed like a sponge it bounces back to its normal size and shape.

 

Is it just me, or have these “animal experts” not heard that mushrooms aren’t an animal?!

The ones that really make me laugh are when they’ve named parasites and other slimy disagreeable creatures after professional rivals that they didn’t like. That’s one top way of insulting your adversaries!
