There’s A Fungus Among Us

The people in Andover, New York (pop. 989) are rarely counted in presidential election polls. That’s unfortunate because they’ve chosen the correct candidate for President in every single election since 1992! And they choose the winners in a very peculiar way – tree fungus.

Over 20 years ago, a rotting branch was sawed off one of the largest trees in the town park by the maintenance crew.  Each fall since then a new crop of fungus, specifically Phellinus pini, has grown over the empty spot. Every election year the townspeople “agree” (after some debate) which candidate it resembles the most.

This year the hands down favorite is Barack Obama.

When asked if comparing a Presidential candidate’s face with tree fungus isn’t a little insulting, Town Mayor Glenn Carney said, “Maybe insulting to the fungus.  These guys come around every few years leeching off the taxpayers and not doing anything except looking ugly.”
