Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

This is too good for me to leave alone. Apparently, Illinois’s Miller Park Zoo is making its own Christmas ornaments .. out of reindeer crap .. and selling them for $5 each in the zoo’s gift shop.

Some folks are surprised at the size of the “gems,” which are only about as big as marbles. “Reindeer are so big,” zoo maintenance worker Sheldon Williams said. But the droppings are “just a big pile of small.”

    Whilst these people seem to have their shit together, if they really want to be number one in the business instead of wasting time with number 2, they should make religious ornaments out of the reindeer droppings and sell them under the trademark of “Holy Crap!”
