Shroomy Slang
    #1660828 - 06/25/03 09:51 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Post what you call your favorite magical mushrooms in your area!

Here I've heard them by a few names:

Boomers, Cubbies, but my favorite:

Smurfhouses.

First time I bought shrooms, my dealer called em' Smurfhouses over the phone..took me a bit to realize what she was sayin'.

And you?

Tell you the truth for some reason I've always been really uncomfortable with the name "Shrooms"... I don't think I've ever actually spoken the word... Something about it always seemed very wrong...

I call 'em mushrooms...

here in holland the serious experimenters and field gatherers call them "Psilo" (psee-low) and the partycrouwd calls them "Paddo's" (pad-doughs) which sounds just as fucked up as "Shrooms"

Some specific shrooms: Liberty Caps, Cubies/Golden Tops/ Flying saucers, Blue halos/wavy caps etc.

DISCUSSION

The most popular and sought after variety of the more than 2 dozen species of sacred mushrooms used in traditional healing and curing ceremonies in Oaxaca, M?xico is Psilocybe mexicana Heim. It is the preferred species among Mazatec shamans, curanderos, sabias, and healers (male and female).

The Chinantecs prefer Psilocybe hoogshagenii (Rubel et Krejci 1976) and the Mixes prefer three different species (Psilocybe cordispora, Psilocybe hoogshagenii, and Psilocybe mexicana).

In villages in and around the ancient ruins of Palenque, Psilocybe cubensis is employed ceremoniously by some shamans and healers. There it is referred to locally as the "San Isidro" mushroom (named after the patron saint of agriculture). Because Psilocybe cubensis and/or P. subcubensis are associated with manure, many local shamanic healers (including the late Mar?a Sabina) do not use these latter two mentioned species and consider them to be inferior.

Entheogenic mushroom use also occurs outside of Mesoamerica. Published research and recreational users of psilocybian fungi have also provided history with many endearing epithets used to describe the many various species of local entheogenic mushrooms; including some ancient traditional terms. Some of the epithets listed below have only recently been known of during the last thirty to forty years while the Chinese and Japanese epithets were recorded more than two millennia ago. These include mushrooms known of in the following countries:

In America, as elsewhere throughout the world, entheogenic mushrooms
are used ludibly by certain members of society as a tool of recreation and by some as a means of religious enlightment. Among such users the entheogenic mushrooms are commonly referred to as "magic mushrooms" and/or "shrooms" (Ott, 1976, 1978, 1993; Singer, 1978).

Stafford (1982 [1992]) noted that the epithet "magic mushroom" was invented and first brought to the attention of the public by a Life magazine editor (see Wasson, 1957) who inserted this term against the wishes of R. Gordon Wasson, into the title of Wasson' Life Magazine feature contribution.

Wasson (1980) had never appreciated the implication and insertion of the word "magic" and had indicated that he preferred the word "wondrous, and deplored the now popular and widespread use of the word "magic" and held reservations about its use.

Popular names given to magic mushrooms by those who consume them for ludible purposes are listed in table 3.

what the Fuck. do you not realise that "shrooms" is just "mushrooms" without the "mu", which actually makes sense. What the fuck sense does paddos make? "Shroom" is just a short variation of the word "mushroom". Many times when people speak of "shrooms" they are talking about psychoactive mushrooms.

paddo's is playing with the Dutch word Paddestoel (toadstool) so it makes sense but it''s ugly, just like shrooms. You don't call Sacraments 'ments now do you?

I was talking about Dutch words, wasn't I? Besides "Mushrooms" is usually used for edible fungus whereas the term "Toadstool" usually  is reserved for inedible ones in GB English according to my Oxford's.
Don't you Americans go and think you OWN the net :smile: :laugh: :grin:

I think mushrooms are something special, sacred in fact, and to use a word like Shrooms or Paddo's sounds bad to me. No hard feelings OK?

Paddos is a Dutch word as Pilze is a German word and Chun is a Chinese word and Take is a Japanese word so there is really nothing wrong with the word paddos or paddostool. THey are foreign words and are acceptable to all.
