The Humongous Fungus Among Us

A quiet Upper Michigan town becomes the center of an international media frenzy after three scientists discover a record-breaking "Humongous Fungus" living next door. Decades later, the town and the scientists continue to embrace the fungus as a growing symbol of community and wonder. Who will be crowned Mr. Fungi? Will there be a giant mushroom pizza? Will the "Humongous Fungus" outlive us all?
