What exactly does eating a can of mushroom do? What are its guaranteed effects and what are its chance effects?
Also, if you pickaxe a giant mushroom corpse, does this create mushroom flesh with the same effect as a can? (Or does it have to be magic mushroom, or does neither work?)

A can of mushroom is the same as a can of banana flesh -- it's contents are giant mushroom flesh, the same as you'd eat if you found a corpse.

I would assume tripping balls would be a side effect.

There is no "Tripping Balls"

Assuming it isn't the same as those magic mushrooms

Then it makes you "Dizzy" which is the status that being high, drunk, or having your head smashed in is lumped with

The status makes you occasionally go a different dirrection then you plan to... with the message "You can't seem to walk straight" (or something to the same effect)

Damn straight. By the way you might want to start training your Spot skill, it's way too low. You just missed two jokes.

I eat mushrooms on regular basis - the most common side effects include: confusion, ESP, flight, slowdown, haste, and perhaps invisibility.

I didn't really notice difference between regular and magic mushrooms, but I tend to avoid eating the latter.

I am a mycophage (look it up). The giant mushrooms are safe to eat in that they will not cause you to polymorph unlike the magic mushrooms. I did get perma confused once by eating to many giant shrooms.

Haha, perma confused.

Yeah, the polymorph is the most dangerous part of magic mushrooms. They'll also cause teleportitis, which is a minor nuisance without control. I forget though -- do magic shrooms grant the control stati?

I think you can get it from eating the magic shrooms but you can definitely get it from the magic vapours.
