Word suggestion: shroom
« on: December 23, 2020, 07:25:35 PM »
From the recent MUSHROOMED game - shroom is a term for those so-called 'magic mushrooms' (the hallucinogenic kind).  It's in several dictionaries.  Worth adding as a rare word in my view.

Well Morbius I never would have picked you as the magic mushroom type!
I drink to make other people more interesting.

It's not a word in my active vocabulary, but I've certainly seen it often. And I even knew the magical ingredient, psilocybin, though I somehow doubt that will come up in Chihuahua any time soon.

Yes, the word's in a few dictionaries these days. It can also be used colloquially for any mushroom, but normally it refers to a hallucinogenic variety.

I'll add shroom as a rare word.
