Funny things grow in damp places. Like mushrooms on forest floors, for example.  Those are really cool.

Or the disgusting semi-organic goo currently growing in the bottom of my wet garbage dumpster. That stuff is so not cool. I dread sticking my head in there to clean out that mess.

I’d much rather spend quality time with the mushrooms.
