Commonly used to avoid saying the word "shit," the origins come from the children's movie "Spy Kids," where the female lead character, upon noticing the amount of enemies ahead, says the word "shit," but in order not to swear in front of her parents, proceeds to say "talking mushrooms," to create the illusion of saying "shitalking mushrooms." Nowadays, is commonly shortened to shiitake mushrooms, modeled after the Japanese word for mushroom.
