Meet 'Shroomjak,' the Wholesome New Wojak Charming the Internet

What is it about Shroomjak that has the Internet enraptured? Is it his coy smile? His kind eyes? His delightful toadstool shape? Or have we fallen so deep into a pit of irony that we can't help but repost the funny mushroom man until our brains melt and all that remains is a demented memetic oblivion? All we know is that a new wojak dropped and he's taken over the shitposting realm. What he wants from us is yet to be seen.

It all started in January when someone anonymously posted the first known image of Shroomjak to 4chan's /b/ board, accompanied by a mild message: 'I made my own wojak.' In any other context, Shroomjak's pleasant, unassuming vibe paired with OP's innocuous comment might have provoked a simple 'good job' or maybe even a 'lol.' But this is 4chan, where dreams are crushed and toxicity runs high. 

Being the insular 'online community' that 4chan is, Shroomjak didn't immediately escape the boards and spread to mainstream social networks, but as we all know, it only takes one tweet or Instagram post for a new meme to go viral. According to Know Your Meme, the /b/ screenshot was shared on Twitter in late June and has since been edited, remixed and shared across social media like wildfire. While many are already tired of seeing that demure expression lurking around every virtual corner, shitposters everywhere are reveling in the glorious excess of Shroomjak posts.

Unlike the crying wojaks, coomers, chads, tradwives, brainlets, npc wojaks, pink wojaks, withered wojaks and every other wojak that came before, Shroomjak stands out as the lovable everyman's wojak—a wojak without malice or political agenda. Is he even human? No, he's just a fun guy.

While the noise that we hear in this video is absolutely giving off some unnerving, horrific vibes, it's equally mystifying to behold the mushroom hunter's superhuman level of chill. It looks like he's planning on returning to that same spot for another video, and we're honestly ready for it.

Artist Creates Imaginative And Incredible Mushroom Dragons

We can't decide if we'd rather see these incredible re-imagined mushroom dragons in the next Pokemon, Monster Hunter, or Dark Souls! 

The extremely talented artist behind the brilliant re-imagination of dragons as mushrooms is Xavier Collette! Xavier Collette was originally born in Belgium and has been living in Brittany, France, for the past decade.

Xavier currently works as an illustrator in many creative and artistic fields! Such as comics, children's books, board games, and concept art. We got a chance to speak with Xavier and discover the inspiration behind his captivating art and the answer was simplistic. Xavier simply wrote, "I like to create worlds." Worlds that involve fantasy and mythological creatures such as fairies, dragons, and more! There is so much imagination to explore when fantasy is your world!

Dogs On Mushrooms: Wholesome Twitter Thread

Here's something we've never seen before - dogs on mushrooms. And, no, not those types of mushrooms. We actually mean dogs literally on mushrooms, standing on them as they protrude out the tree trunks. It's whimsical and magical and we're getting dog fairy vibes from it and loving it. 

Turns out, when Twitter user @lofidrew shared the images of pups on mushrooms, they weren't the only images of dogs gracefully standing upon some mushrooms! Other users shared similar images and then came the silly shenanigans. We didn't know we needed these images until right now and we're hoping you'll feel the same way afterward. 

Let's go mushroom hunting!

Macro-photography Shows The Immense Beauty Of Mushrooms

Marco-photographer extraordinaire, Alison Pollack, focuses her photography on fungi and Myxomycetes.

Pollack's Instagram account is jam-packed with stunning photos of these minuscule hypnotic mushrooms. In an interview with PetaPixel, Pollack reveals how she got started, "I started to get serious about mushroom and Myxomycete photography a couple of years ago, when I found and photographed my first Myxomycete. I had no idea what it was, so I looked it up online. I was immediately fascinated with the Myxomycete life cycle, and I have been avidly hunting and photographing them ever since.

As I looked for the tiny Myxos, I also started noticing really tiny fungi, and started photographing them as well. These tiny organisms are all over the forest when it rains, but they are so small that people just don't see them. My goal is to reveal their beauty and magic!"

You have definitely done so! Scroll down to see some of that magic mushroom revealed by Pollack:
