So, Chinese News reported on a magical mushroom found at the bottom of a well. Turns out it was a male sex toy like the Fleshlight in the US or Tenga in Japan. Here’s the news report and their official statement below. I’m crying right now from laughter.

An open letter to all netizens and viewers: Hi everyone, one of our news reports which aired last night has made everyone laugh. This incident has been widely followed, shared and commented on. As our reporter was still very young and unwise to the ways of the world, this report has brought great inconvenience to everyone. 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!

LMAO! Also, check out the equally hilarious discussions on Asian culture currently happening on Reddit.
