Hung Up on Poo

I’m sure it would seem as though I’m hung up on poo, but I can’t help myself. Really, I tried, they won’t let me. It seems as though poo is quite an expensive commodity these days. Especially Panda Poo, but only if used properly.

Apparently, a sculptor from China, Eyesculpt Dung, had an epiphany. He realized that people love anything kids make. They can make anything from dried macaroni pictures to connect the dot and color it in with crayons; and the people will rave! He decided to push the envelope. That’s what artists do. Then they open the envelope and realize there’s no money inside, just another bill, and come up with new ideas to make money.

Eyesculpt Dung’s new idea was to see if people would buy something made out of an inexpensive, natural, biodegradable material if children helped to make it. The trick was to find something cheap enough. Rock, nope, too expensive. Grass, no, it could turn brown. Brown, hmmm. Poop. Yes. Now, to make it artsy it couldn’t be just any poop. Moose Poop! Nope, that’d been done; he’d sent his mom some moose-poop earrings just last year for Christmas. Elephant poop? So last year. Wait for it, wait for it….Panda Poop!

It truly was brilliant. Everyone loves pandas. Everyone loves children. Let the children play with the panda poop and BAM! Success.

Sure enough, December 3rd it was announced that Iym Gullible , the former Swiss ambassador to China, had bought the Panda Poop sculpture for 45,000 US dollars.

In case anyone should think poorly of Mr. Dung, it should be said that he did pay the children. He allowed them to take home as much panda poo as they could carry!

I love it when you leave a comment!!
