I’ve always thought there was a hot fungus among us.

This calls for another study to find out if sexy reindeer lichens are what caused Rudolph's red nose.

Corrected:
"Reindeer lichens reproduce sexually far more than scientists"

Why do they find it surprising that reindeer lichen are horny?

Now I wonder if those lichens and Grandma getting run over by a reindeer on her way home on Christmas Eve has any connection?

They'll probably have a special lichen hunt to keep the numbers down. A hunter was heard to say "I like em that lichen."

Some closely related species may be having three-ways with fairies. They are common across the northern latitudes of North America and Eurasia, including here in New Hampshire.
