Does anyone know what this is?

I found this in my yard this morning and I have no idea what it is. Does anyone know?

    I immediately thought it was something I would dry,and add some color to it and use as a substitute for a piece of coral in a "beachy" display ????????

    Sorry but this looks like poop to me. It was the first thing I thought about but obviously artistic poop ;-)

    lol Connie H , I have picture of the ahummm 'phallus' one I took here at the nursery, which I didn't smell! I stayed pretty far way from it because it was really really peculiar :)

    I knew one of you would know. Thank you Douglas Hunt and 360 Sod (Donna Dixson) for stopping in. Quite an amazing "thing". Hard to call it a plant.
