Tolerable though, as the fungus among us complain quietly but don't require mushroom at all.

I'm broccoli and I look like a tree!
I'm a walnut and I look like a brain!

I'm a mushroom and I don't like this game. :-(

Is this a common saying in Norwegian? Or a reference I do not get?

I wish it were a common saying, but no... it's but a quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

Ah, thanks!
(I almost deleted this question after having the mushroom show up in a different sentence, along with a princess and a plumber, because that made me believe this sentence here might be a Mario reference.)

Hehe, I will admit that "sopp" was a highly entertaining word to make up sentences for. ;)

dette høres ut som noe man sier, hvis man har spist visse typer sopper selv

Fleinsopp er ikke til å spøke med.
