Who done it?

If you can't wait to jump on the bandwagon of selling poo goodies, you no doubt need The Pocket Guide to Poop Identity. Avoid the embarrassment of using the wrong type of poo for your products.

All of the major animal species are covered, together with some of the more wild and exotic species, and full-colour photographs reveal eachtype of poop in all its glory. Handy identification tips and 'Scat Facts' run throughout the book to help you gain confidence in your poop-identification ability. It includes a special colour-comparison chart for in-the-field classification; covers all the major animal species and each type of poop and much, much more... than you probably ever needed or wanted to know!

Despite the claim that this is a "pocket guide" the book measures 19 x 12.2 x 1.6 cm. Deep pockets will make the job of carrying this book around a lot easier. If not there's always an option of taking the poop home instead.

Did you miss sale of Belgium?

So did we. Before eBay cancelled the sale of Belgium, this second-hand item had attracted an offer of 10 million euros.

"Belgium, a kingdom in three parts" was posted on the Belgian eBay site as offering "plenty of choice" despite the caveat that it comes with "300 billion of National Debt". Offered in three parts - Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia - the accompanying blurb said the kingdom "can be bought as a whole (not recommended)". The vendor also included as added extras "the king and his court (costs not included)". EBay spokesman Peter Burin said the site could not host the sale of anything virtual or "unrealistic", the Belga news agency reported.
It's painful enough to see your motherland auctioned off, calling it "virtual" or "unrealistic" is even worse.

The 'vendor' was named as a former journalist, Gerrit Six. Offering his lot at an initial price of one euro, he saw 26 subsequent bids culminating in the 10 million euro offer today before the auction was halted.

The spoof sale was offered while Belgium is mired in a political crisis which has led to discussion over the country's future as a federal state.

Tomorrow marks 100 days since the country's general election with no sign of a coalition government being formed by the political parties in Dutch-speaking Flanders and French-speaking Wallonia.

According to the eBay spokesman, it wasn't the first time Belgium had been put up for sale.

Due to the continuous political crisis, this might not be the last time either. I guess I'll be saving my euros for another sale.

Skull crusher from Ford

Ford Expedition got a starring role in the finale of "The Sopranos". Here's from The Detroit News:

The scene in question begins with a lingering close-up of the Blue Oval badge on the grille of an Expedition that carries Phil Leotardo, a New York mob boss locked in a deadly feud with series star Tony Soprano. Leotardo gets out of the passenger side and is promptly shot in the head by one of the latter's henchmen. The mafia don falls, his head landing right before the front wheel of the SUV as his wife leaps from the driver's seat, fleeing from the shooter.

The camera then shifts again to the Ford logo, this time emblazoned on the wheel of the Expedition. The wheel begins to turn, rolling slowly over Leotardo's head, which is crushed with a sickening crunch.

Despite the heavy use of Ford imagery, the automaker said it was as surprised by the scene as anybody else.

"The Expedition that appeared in the series finale of 'The Sopranos' last night was not a product placement deal," said Ford spokeswoman Whitney Drake, quoting a prepared statement.

Really? Someone really made sure everyone notices it is a Ford.

Do voodoo in the kitchen

This great Voodoo knife set will make a great present for someone who has to deal with a painful breakup. Might as well do it in the kitchen.

Crafted in rich red, ABS plastic, the highly stylish Voodoo has five strategically-positioned slots in which to place five quality knives,
which are also included.

Apart from its striking appearance the sturdy VOODOO is a brilliant kitchen companion, especially if you're used to using one crummy knife to chop, slice, fillet and dice.

Paper from panda poo

Creative use of panda poo is on the rise. Another zoo, this time in Thailand, make paper from the bamboo pulp extracted from the excrements of two resident pandas. Last year the zoo sold 300,000 baht (£4,330) worth of greeting cards, fans and bookmarks made from poo paper.

'We know that any kind of pulp can be used to make paper, so we have applied the 2,000-year techniques of making paper from mulberry tree in this rural neighbourhood to bamboo pulp from panda dung,' said the zoo's Prasertsak Buntrakoonpoontawee.

Dog and cat poo ideas anyone? Let me know.
