Piece of Poop Priced at 10,000$

If you read this title and thought this could never happen, you’re not alone. We, ourselves, could not believe it either.

There is an easy explanation, however. This sh*t is so old it literally does not even have a smell. That is the only reason why it is so insanely cheap.

Here is what the good old NPR has reported:

This specimen is roughly 20 million years old. For the guy who has everything (and who has occasionally looked below to see what he’s produced in the porcelain bowl), here’s a souvenir worth bragging about. “Mine is from the Miocene and it’s the ‘longest,’ ” he can say (ignoring the slippery word “possibly”).

We’re not surprised that they managed to sell it though. They wrote a wonderful marketing copy:

This truly spectacular specimen is possibly the longest example of coprolite ever to be offered at auction. It boasts a wonderfully even, pale brown-yellow coloring and terrifically detailed texture.

“Wonderfully even! Terrifically detailed!” Now you know what you should say the next time you want to sell some worthless crap. Just don’t forget to add “it’s also possibly the longest”. When they sue you because it’s not the longest, you could always say you mentioned the word “possibly”.
