The Latest Scoop on Fashion

Vintage necklaceAt a recent technology trade fair, inventor, Karl Friedrich Lenser, unveiled his dog poo necklace. Made from his Jack Russell's feces and microwaved until diamond-hard, the necklace may just be the next big fashion trend. At least, that's what the inventor hopes:

"I saw when it was in the microwave that it becomes hard. It becomes beautiful and it is like a jewel. People always have a tendency to be individual. If they see it they want to have it. I am sure it will become a fashion."

Two thoughts on this: I hope he didn't use the office microwave, and what the heck possessed him to microwave poop in the first place?

It's a bit like a pet rock, isn't it? If this does take off, why buy one when you could easily pick it up from your yard? Note: the necklace pictured here is not made of poop. At least, I hope not because it belongs to me.

A turd necklace, really? And I'm with you, Lynn, what possessed him to microwave his little lawn jewels in the first place? I hardly think that qualifies him to be labeled as "inventor".

I agree, Karla. But I might change my mind if it came with a pair of earrings ...

NT, I think you've come up with the perfect name for this guy's necklace: lawn jewels!

Almost as wacko as Angelina Jolie wearing a vial of Billy Bob Thornton's blood around her neck when they were married.

Excretion and body fluid art and/or jewelry? Um, thank you...no.

Lynn Sinclair said...

Yeah, that Billy Bob blood bling was just a bit over the top.

I hesitate to ask this, but can he do anything with hairballs? We seem to have an excess of these around (don't tell Toasty).

And I haven't used my blogger ID in so long, I can't remember my password!

Ewww!

Raggs, you've been a long time away from your blog. So have I. As far as the hair balls are concerned, they seem to harden and stick together without any help from the microwave.

"Ewww" is the perfect description, Brenda.
