Man Finds Valuable Whale Vomit On Beach
"A British man said he was walking his dog on the beach when the canine discovered a lump of whale vomit - also known as ambergris - worth some $158,550.
Ken Wilman said his boxer, Madge, discovered the smelly lump on a Morecambe, England, beach and an online search identified the 6-pound object as ambergris, an ingredient in perfume that could be worth as much as $158,550, The Mirror reported Thursday."
My dog Mandy has a penchant for eating her own vomit, I'm afraid that if I took her walking on the beach and she saw a lump of whale vomit worth thousands she would gobble it up.
I've dreamed of striking it rich by finding a pot of gold, but I never imagined that some lucky dude could hit the jackpot by finding a lump of whale vomit.
Wilman plans on sending a sample of the lump to scientists to verify if it is authentic ambergris vomit from a sperm whale. It could be that a string-bikini clad Rosie O'Donnell was vacationing on the beach in England, making everyone retch in disgust.
I'm hoping that Wilman struck gold, and not Rosie O'Donnell vomit.
