There is a Fungus Among Us

I found this mass of mushroom in our yard on Saturday while mowing.
All my wife could say was "GET RID OF IT!" It kinda freaked her out.
I told her it looked kinda like a brain.

I think this is a maitake mushroom, known as "hen of the woods" or "dancing mushrooms."
It's apparently edible and has several health benefits such as a super boost to your immunity.

I'm not a fan of mushrooms, neither is my wife, so we're going to pass on eating it.
But if it means no flu shot this year, hmmm......
