Does this mean you would end up with constipated compost?  rofl

Bunging is also a term used in processing meat in a slaughter house to prevent contamination. 
Details easily googled if one is curious about these things.  It is not for the squeamish.  Decades ago I took a meat production course in college.  Bunging a fresh killed steer was experienced.  Never again that's for sure..

I can only guess that is similar to what you do when cleaning a deer so that you don't contaminate the meat with some of the waste.

Nonna, do Dog Vomit Mushrooms look like yellow foam to start with and then turn brown?  I have some on my old birch tree wood chips and they look gross.
What does one do with them, if anything?

Our "dog vomit" mushrooms on the hay bales were dull yellow-brown (hence their name, I'd guess).  Except for photographing the gross things, we did nothing to them.  They didn't appear to be hurting anything, and the Sikkim cucumbers growing inside the bales went gangbusters, so the 'shrooms must have been beneficial in some way.  No repeat this year of the dog vomit mushrooms, maybe 2014 doesn't have the necessary weather pattern, or the hay bales are nutrient depleted for them.  Nonna

It's called slime mold and is a different organism than mushrooms. Absolutely fascinating.

Thanks, Nonna. Yes, this stuff was a dull yellow foam this morning and it has now hardened and turned brownish. Is certainly is not a pretty sight.  The chips I have so far on my garden were made from my own birch trees, and during the early fall I used to have aweful looking brown mushrooms sprout. I found out that is was some kind of symbiosis where mushrooms and  trees fed each other.
Maybe now that the trees are down the mushroom stuff may not appear. I am glad that I am not showing my garden in our Annual Garden Tour that happened yesterday, it would have put people off the BTE way. 
I will let Mother Nature take her way.

Slime Mold

You are right, camprn, it is a fascinating subject. I have bookmarked this to read more fully (say 3am when I am awake and cannot sleep.
Mt stuff is definately the so-called Dog Vomit. An unattractive name for it indeed.
