My friends dog ate three little party-bags made of plastic mesh, that were full of those chalky sugar candies you get for Valentines day. The packages had a little plastic, silvery "thankyou" tag attached to it. So when the time came, the doggie was leaving little gift wrapped packages of dog mess, with little thankyous written into the side.

cgraves67: Coprolite inspector. It's not a glamorous job, but it's a job.


The worst part is they make you keep a log.

mudpants: semiotix: Wait, prehistoric people used hyena crap on their hair? GROSS.

They didn't have Charmin back then and they were total badasses.  I'll let you figure out the rest.


I hate it when I rush into a bathroom stall and don't check out the supplies before I download, then have to ask the caveman next to me to shove a Hyena under the wall, please.

I think "pre-historic hyena taunter" was the previous worst job.

That does sound like a horrible job.

Could you imagine being the barber that had to hold and control the hyena clippers every time Tor came in and asked for "a little off the top?"  They probably tipped horribly in those days too.

Upon googling "hyena coprolte", this nugget appeared.

doloresonthedottedline: birdboy2000: To be fair, we're talking about fossilized feces.  I think that'd be a lot easier to handle than the non-fossilized kind.

This. We have a basset hound still struggling with house training, and he got into the leftover peppers from Kung Pao Chicken one night. Some accidents have been so gross we had to wait for it to at least not be not AND pudding soft. It also has a spectacularly bad smell.


Our Basset ate my wife's spare dentures once.  Nobody informed me of this in advance, I only discovered it when I was out doing my "Owners Duty" and one of the piles had teeth in it.

/That will wake a person right up, lemme tell ya.

My niece used to work for San Diego Zoo.  She stopped off in DC, from a trip to England (and a zoo there) with a Mountain Gorilla sperm specimen that had to be kept in my freezer.  When asked if it came from the British Zoo, she told me that it had been "captured" in the wild in Africa and forwarded to the English Zoo who thought the quickest way to get it to San Diego was with her.

I kept thinking about what kind of person could not only trap a Silver Back in the mountains of Africa, but get a sperm sample from him to boot?   I knew I didn't want to mess with them that was for certain.
