OMG - what the hell is that
? I appear to have an alien penis
(or some sort of very odd plant
) growing in my backyard. Please help me identify it.

This morning, just now, I went to take the trash out and stopped to pick up what at first glance looked like a bone. On second look I realized it had a burst pod of some sort on the end. And then I got totally creeped out.
It is coming out of the ground. And it *was NOT* there yesterday afternoon. It has the aforementioned burst pod, is pliable enough to bend, but other than nudging it with my toe and the measuring tape I would rather not touch it directly.
The whitish surface appears dry and enough like one to have me mistake it for it initially. The very tip has sand on it, but the rest looks greenish and veiny.
Any help in identifying this this to keep me from freakin the f out would be helpful.
