Inside you can see that the once flesh has turned into a powder. Flickr caused some of the sharpness to go away but here it is:

    In Norway, we would call these "smokey mushroom" (r°yksopp). We used to kick them around when we were kids. Lots of fun. I would probably do it if I found one now too.

    Correct, they are Norwegian, but quite famous abroad as well. Wondered if anyone would notice. Well done...
