If you have ‘shrooms in the house, it’s hard to look at this image, spotted on Facebook, and not want to grab them and a paring knife and start to skull-ify ‘em. A great way to add a spooky detail to a salad for a Halloween party. The FB post was unattributed, by I managed to track the image down to Zachary Kominar’s Flickr feed and a post on Skull-a-Day from 2009.
