Since this was a particularly rough morning due to the time change, rainy weather and it just being Monday I needed a little chuckle.
Enter weird news- gets me every time!
What caught my eye was the headline:
Ummm, exxxcuse me??
Did you say dino dung?
I must read more!
GENEVA – A Swiss watchmaker is hoping to raise a stink with an expensive timepiece that eschews the trade’s standard gold, diamond or titanium fittings for a more earthy substance — dinosaur dung.
Vesenaz, Switzerland-based company Artya says the watch set in fossilized feces will sell for $11,290 and comes with a strap made with skin from an American cane toad.
Designer Yvan Arpa said Monday the coprolite came from a plant-eater that died about 100 million years ago in what is now the U.S.
What I really wanted to find out was how exactly this company acquired the dino defecation.
Sadly, the article did not divulge that information, but something that did peak my interest was the fact that the origin of the dung was none other than the USA.
I will be taking a closer look at rocks now, since they may be dinosaur shit.
I will however, be wearing gloves while examining potential “watch material”
What really shocked me was the people are going to be paying out the ass (pun intended) for this chronometer,
$11,290 to be exact!!!
