I always knew the blog would make money

Finally proof that the blog would make money…people at lesser read blogs always complain that all I do is vomit all over the internet. Well looks like it is about to pay off. This guy has found some whale vomit worth £100,000:

Ken Wilman, 50, was walking along Morecambe beach in northern England when his dog, Madge, discovered a large, hard smelly rock.

Upon returning home he looked the object up online and realised that Madge may have found ambergris, a waxy by-product of sperm whale digestion that has traditionally been used in perfumes, spices, and medicines.

Mr Wilman went back to the beach and brought the rock to home immediately.

After contacting companies in Europe, he learnt the musky material could be worth as much as £100,000.

Ambergris has been used in fragrances for centuries and is a component of many popular perfumes.

    The stuff is mind bogglingly rare. When the American whaling fleet was the largest in the world,the fleet found less than a ton of the stuff over a period of 80 years.

    Some was found on the beach around here a few years back, I believe those that found it did very nicely .

    But you’re not a real whale. But you do vomit, that is correct.
