Couldn’t they tell from its texture that it is synthetic?

It’s silly for sure, but that reporter is probably a very nice girl and the kind you would want to take home to meet Mom.

I know some women who would not only identify it immediately, but also tell you the make and model number too.

I was just thinking that it’s really kind of sweet that she didn’t recognise it. In this sexualised culture, it’s almost impossible to think of anything innocuous which hasn’t had sexual connotations attached to it, it’s very irritating. Even kids can’t escape it.

Re: “260 feet underground?”

I’ll guess the villagers were growing mushrooms - typically underground - and “found” this item.

Best not to allow your imagination to wander too far down that path.

Chinese News Confuses Masturbation Toy with a Mysterious Mushroom

It was unlike anything the villagers had ever seen. The young news reporter who arrived on the scene was quick to point out that the “mysterious mushroom” felt “meaty”. Meaty, sure, but that ain’t no mushroom.

On June 17, Chinese investigative news program Xi’an Up Close reported about a “mysterious mushroom” discovered in the rural part of Liucunbu, outside the capital of Shaanxi province, while digging for a new well.

Wondering what it was, the villagers kept their mysterious discovery in a bucket of water and occasionally poked it. That is, with their fingers.
“When we dug down to about 80m deep, we fished out this long, fleshy object,” one villager told reporter Ye Yunfeng (via Shingaiist) It’s got a nose and an eye, but we have no idea what it is!”

The villager added that even his 80 year-old neighbor has never seen anything like this before.

“As we can all see, this looks like a type of fungus, on both ends of which you’ll find mushroom heads,” said the reporter.

“On this side, you can see what looks like a pair of lips. And on that side, there is a tiny hole which extends all the way back to this side. The object looks very shiny, and it feels very fleshy and meaty too.”

Unknown to the villagers, what they had actually discovered was a male masturbation aid. The “pair of lips” represents a vagina, and the “tiny hole” represents an anus.

Still, the villagers had their own theories, thinking that they’d found a type of lingzhi mushroom; the reporter seemed to agree, adding that the lingzhi mushroom can be found in the region and even was a secret to longevity.

The news report quickly went viral in China and the rest of Asia as people online knew this was no mystery and pointed out that the villagers had discovered a sex toy; this program seemed to have no idea what it filmed.

The show, however, issued a correction, trying to pawn off the mistake on the reporter who is “still very young and unwise to the ways of the world” (an unfair excuse because the reporter most certainly had a crew, an editor, a producer and others involved in the story—this was not rogue sex toy confusion). The program added, “We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for your criticism and correction. Please forgive our oversight!”

Not sure. I do know he wants to be a ‘broad’ in the USA, though.

At first glance, especially when viewing from the side, I can see how the mistake was made. Of course, once you look at both ends of the ‘mushroom’ it becomes a bit more apparent...
