YOU Can Collect Whale Puke for Fun & Profit!

Just walk the beaches of Australia . . .

A beach-strolling south Australian couple found a rounded, grey 32 pound lump of bouyant material they couldn't identify - so, naturally, they brought it home. Turns out its a rare, fatty, perfume ingredient that Sperm whales upchuck called ambergris.

Ambergris gets high dollar in the perfume trade. The couple may make as much as $295,000 from the sale of the whale-blown chunks. The hell!

Probably .02 less than beagle poo, which I could bag and export.

I really meant for that to be a joke, but when I researched it I found that some synthetic fragrances do actually use animal urine and feces...
and now you know why I buy only name brands.
