Mushroom treatment

(originally posted March 24, 2006)

"The mushroom treatment"

This one is better illustrated by example.

"We've determined that John is a spy. Instead of revealing him, we decided to give him the mushroom treatment."

Well, how do you grow mushrooms? (蘑菇﹐ not 冬菇)

"You keep them in the dark and you feed them shit."

Though don't take this one literally. :) In this case, it means to deliberately NOT inform someone, to deceive someone (i.e. "keep him in the dark"). And continue to feed him false information ("feed him shit").
