Reindeer Doo-Doo As Holiday Ornaments

Yeah, you read that right. Some enterprising folks at the Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, IL figured out a way to make reindeer poop pay...in a big way.

They take a dropping (which, it turns out, is very small considering the size of Santa's sleigh-pullers) dry it, clear-coat it and then roll it in paint or glitter and sell it as a tree decoration for $5.

The zoo's marketing director lives up to her title by naming the droppings "magical reindeer gem ornaments" and you even get a certificate of authenticity, though I'm not sure why.

This whole thing is the fault of the zoo director's grandmother, but you'll have to read the story to find out why.

Now I know what to do with the mess my dog has made out of my backyard. Fair warning to family and friends; you know what to expect this holiday season...Magical Wolf Garland Ornaments!
