    Chinese villagers in Liucunbu stumbled across a strange mushroom while digging a new well and managed to keep it alive in a bucket of water until reporters were able to show up. At no time during the whole ordeal did anyone realize it was rubber and there was a fake vagina on ... / Continue →

    Because I'm on a deviantART (and mimosa) kick this morning, here comes a wicked-sick (I can say that because I'm cool) picture of the Mushroom Kingdom as envisioned by artist lastscionz. Pretty awesome, huh? I especially like how Yoshi reminds me of the Loch Ness monster beca... / Continue →

    Remember skilled sculptor (and handsome Geekologie Reader) Kalapusa's Piranha Plant garden sculpture? Well now the man behind the pipe-dwelling plant is back at it, this time with a trio of Christmas ornaments. In case you can't tell what they are because you don't know anyth... / Continue →

    This is an incredibly impressive Mario themed soda display at an unknown gas station in Mysteryville, USA. Sure there are clues in the picture as to where it was actually taken, but do I look like Sherlock Holmes. This is a crack pipe! Anyway, kudos to whoever spent the time... / Continue →

    This is a periodic sweater of elements made by knitter apinnick. It looks sharp and I would wear it EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS. The table continues around the sweater to the back, and the sleeves contain the names of different fungi (right sleeve) and bacteria (left sleeve)... / Continue →

    They're mushrooms made from radishes. Now marinate on the depth of what I just said for a second. Still with me? *wheezing* Damn, I thought I lost you. Anyway, these power up mushroom radishes were made by video game themed bento maker extraordinaire, Anna The Red. Pretty ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Conan O'Brien talking about his new Mushroom Kingdom inspired backdrop. I don't want to ruin it for you, but there were no dinosaurs. Also, that's two plugs now Conan, it's time you holler back at your boy. Youtube Thanks to Fally, who agrees late-night t... / Continue →

    This is a new $18 shirt from Threadless that features Mario buying drugs from his little mushroom-headed dealer. As you can see, one star coin scores three whole shrooms, which is a pretty good deal if you ask me. But who's asking me? YO MAMA. Ooooh, burn! But seriously, t... / Continue →

    Loyal Geekologie Reader Katie made her Mario-loving boyfriend 1-UP cupcakes for his 24th birthday. And as you can see, they have eyes. Ha -- up a little. See, eyes. BOOM SHACKA LACKA! Hit the jump for a whole bunch more.... / Continue →

    Some artsy folks went and custom painted traditional Matryoshka dolls to look like characters from Star Wars and Super Mario, respectively. Not bad. I think these would make a great arts-and-crafts project to do with your kids, provided they don't eat the paint or glue their ... / Continue →

    This is a highly erotic time-lapse video of some Psilocybe cubensis "gold cap" mushrooms growing. It was created using 1,661 photos over the course of 5 days, 18 hours and 25 minutes. I really liked the zoom-out effect during the video, I thought that was a nice touch. Also,... / Continue →

    It never ceases to amaze me the talent you Geekologie Readers possess. In this particular case, reader Bexx B. made a 1-Up mushroom out of the cork from a bottle of tequila she chugged. *swoon* So, because I am a drunkard. After finishing off my bottle of Trader joes Tequila... / Continue →

    Zombie Mario, who would have thought? Not me, but that's because I'm not creative. One time in grade school our teacher told us to draw a made-up animal and I drew a cat. I did not receive full credit. And that, dear reader, is how I developed a stuttering problem. But tha... / Continue →

    This is a Sesame Street ripoff featuring the Pot Cookie Monster. You know, because he loves pot cookies. Now as someone who's done several people's fair share of drugs in their life (do as I say kids, not as I do), I found it lacking. I question if the makers have ever actua... / Continue →

    If there's one thing I love it's video game inspired food items. So these Mario 1-UP burgers are right up my alley in my pie-hole. All you need to do is dye your bun tops green with food coloring, melt some mozzarella circles on top, and presto: nobody will touch your burge... / Continue →
