This awesome piece of ugly mimicry is all-natural, folks.

It’s a fungus.

Called the Auricularia auricula-judae, this grotesque-looking piece of work is a fungus commonly referred to as Judas’ Ear, Jelly Ear or Common Ear Fungus. Fitting.

Found all over the world on elder trees, the fungus is bland-tasting but occasionally used as a remedy for a sore throat in Asia and Europe.

In America it’s probably beneficial when used as a remedy for freaking out annoying children.
