Yeah I already bush hogged it curiosity got me wondering what it is I'll be prepared next year. It's a stem plant with a single sticker ball on top with spikes all around the base of the ball.

From the pic I'd say it looks like some type of thistle...(just guessing)

That is Teasel. It can become a problem because it may become invasive. Phenoxies will control.

Hard to tell by the picture, but looks like Jimson weed to me. Leaves will resemble stinging nettle. I always heard Jimson was poisonous too. A lavender/light blue/whiteish flower on each stalk branch before the pods start developing.
I have one small area by my loafing shed that a plant or 2 comes back from the first year I had one appear and didn't get it cut down or sprayed early.
Inside each of those spiny ball looking seed pods are about 100 little bitty black seeds.You'll have a bumper crop next year. 2,4d will kill it in early growth stage.
other names for it:
Jamestown weed
Thorn Apple
Downy Thornapple
Devil's Trumpet
Angel's Trumpet
Mad Apple
Stink Weed
Tolguacha

It's leaves are a hallucinogenic too.
