"Bob. Step away from the Shiznit."

"Eh? Wah?"

"The Shiznit Bob. The giant mushroom. They're called Shiznits. Step back slowly."

"Why? It's just a mushroom..."

"Bob, they've got giant spikes that pop out and impale animals when they get too close. Now step slowly to me, and try not to step on the little ones."

"Bob. Stop panicking."

"I'm not panicking!"

"Bob, I can hear you panting from here, and I'm in a spacesuit."

"Oh God! Oh God! Oh God!"

"Bob, stop. Stop! BOB! STOP!"


"And that's why they're called Shiznits. Goddammit Bob! Well your clone can clean up."

    Thanks Neville, Drew. I didn't create those, they're from a game called ASTRONEER. They're officially called Spikers, but I've taken to calling them Shiznits ;)

    That was fun, and your name for them's better. :-)
