Definition of Fungus


  1. Any one of the Fungi, a large and very complex group of thallophytes of low organization, -- the molds, mildews, rusts, smuts, mushrooms, toadstools, puff balls, and the allies of each.
  2. A spongy, morbid growth or granulation in animal bodies, as the proud flesh of wounds.

Fred Allen

I change my socks often, because I had bad bouts of athlete's foot fungus infections as a kid. I may be able to change socks less frequently and not get the fungus. But, I'd rather not run the test to determine just how infrequently I could change socks. I don't feel superstitious about it.
Bill Nye

Bureaucracy is like a fungus that contaminates everything.
Jaime Lerner

Marriage is a custom brought about by women who then proceed to live off men and destroy them, completely enveloping the man in a destructive cocoon or eating him away like a poisonous fungus on a tree.
Richard Harris
