Like being the one who always has a joke to tell?

There are a surprising amount of funny jokes you can tell about mushrooms. Why not try memorising a few of these to roll out next time your friends are at your house – or entertain your family by becoming the best mushroom joke teller around!

Before we get started, here are a few mushroom facts to put you in the know. Did you know that mushrooms are a type of fungus? Or that sometimes mushrooms are called toadstools? A person who studies mushrooms is called a mycologist and there are over 10,000 known types of mushrooms, but mycologists think there are probably thousands more mushrooms we just haven't discovered yet. The most common type of mushroom that we eat in the United Kingdom is called the button mushroom, but there are plenty of others you might see in the supermarket, like portabello mushrooms. In French mushrooms are called 'champignons' (pronounced 'cham-pin-yon).
