Beretus pompomus, a native funghi of Klah, has made a recent comeback after dwindling numbers led to the establishment of the Beretus Pompomus Protection Society. Aside from donning matching jackets and acquiring BPPS engraved thermoses, the members also spend a great deal of time marching through fields singing fungusy tunes to encourage growth. Mavis Shroomkip, President of the BPPS announced today that the species is flourishing in record numbers. “We are absolutely stonkingly delighted. Picnics all round, followed by a performance by our famous Fungus Choir”.
Klah is widely recognized amongst world mycologists for its magnificent variety of native funghi, and of these, B. pompompus is a particularly important species, as it has saved the life of many a lost and frozen picnicker – the top of the funghi can be removed and worn as a hat, providing both stylishness and warmth.
If you do come across a Beretus pompomus in your backyard, the BPPS recommends a casual lullaby and some encouraging words could go a long way in saving this valuable species.
