I have never seen anything like this, it looks like lettuce with thorns on the leaf:
anyone know what it is?

Horseradish? Crush the leaves and take a careful whiff, if it's horseradish you'll know.

it's not horse raddish

I live in the PNW if that helps in identifying. I hope it's edible and tastes good because I have heaps of it everywhere.

Looks like teasel -- the one that makes the big dry seedheads used in dry flower arrangements. I get this on roadsides mostly - not anywhere there is much disturbance...

Thanks Eric, I believe you are right. I looked it up and it's a teasel. I have clayish soil too which is the kind of growing conditions these plants like.

Thanks!!

so I dug up a bunch of teasel root, I'll be making a medicinal tincture out of it

Thanks for helping me identify it!
