Holy Shit It's Slime Mold!

So I saw this growing in my front yard yesterday.

"Great," I said to myself, "my house will soon be consumed by a giant fucking blob of this stuff."

It doesn't help that I've been trying to write a "horror" screenplay. My mind automatically "goes there".

Just in case anyone wants to know. It's called "Slime Mold". AKA "Dog Vomit Mold" (not kidding). And it's completely harmless.

Too bad.

I might of had some inspiration if had eaten my neighbor's dog.

I never knew this even existed... gross.

I have seen this from time to time in my yard. Just scoop it up and toss it. If you rake your mulch in the spring, it will probably not appear.

And... it is harmless but fun to say dog vomit :-)

Yeah, I looked up how to get rid of it online.

I bet they could make a scary movie about this...

Attack of the slime mold!

Watch it take over the Eastern Seaboard...and destroy the Statue of Liberty.

Damn mold.

Ew. I've never seen that before. I'm glad I read that it's normal because if I had seen that in my yard and NOT known it was normal, I'd have been in a panic that it was some crazy terrorist thing and that we were all going to die.

I don't know, man. I'd be lining the door jams and air vents with towels.

EEEEEEEWWWWWWW! Here's a possible solution for your slime mold. If it's dog barf, the dog may just eat it once deposited or another dog may come along and decide that it wants a snack of "Things that I can disgust my owner with by eating them".
