Toadstools, Acorns and Berets
Sure, there is a definite similarity between mushrooms, acorns and the beret. A similarity that is a lot less offensive in English than Dutch; the acorn ("eikel", in Dutch) also meaning a certain part of the male anatomy.
And yes, there are plenty of cartoons, comedians and sayings pointing out the relationship between an "eikel" and a beret(wearer).
Or what to think of the Boleto Vasco (or Basque Mushroom)?
Japanese artist Dadaya took it a step further; have a look at her very fancy berets.
