A lady wanted to throw a nice dinner party and invited 15 or 16 friends over. She wanted to prepare steaks covered in mushrooms and gravy, baked potatoes, salads, and deserts.
The invitations went out and everyone sent RSVP's. The lady came home from the grocery store and was upset about the price of mushrooms. Her husband said why don't you try those mushrooms growing out behind the barn. The lady asked are they ok? Well I don't know but why don't you try them.
She cooked up a batch of the wild mushrooms and served them to her dog Spot, who ate them up. She surmised they must be good mushrooms, so she prepared the dinner.
Everyone raved over the delicious dinner especially those wonderfully tasty mushrooms. About that time the maid ran in crying that Spot the dog had died!
Emergency services responds as time is of the essence, and proceeded to pump out their stomachs. When they later saw the maid, they were talking about what happened to Spot the dog. You know, said the maid, those people who ran over Spot with their car did not even stop.
