Weird and wonderfull and disgusting

This weird looking fungus showed up in one of my vegetable beds. The growing medium is composted cow manure.

This disgusting looking thing showed up on one of my parsnip plants. Its disgusting, revolting, at the same time quite fascinating, the ants seem to eat it, or maybe its producing honey like aphids ? It seems to have snail like tentacles, or caterpillar like tentacles on the right hand side ?

I tried to pry it off and it disintegrated into hundreds maybe thousands of little eggs all held together with a slimy goo. Very ewww.
