I’m sure you’re going to read about a lot of astounding things today, but I’m positive none will be as peculiar as this. A traveling “Poo Museum” has currently become so “poopular” (like what I did there) that it is getting its very own building.
Three men, Daniel Roberts, Nigel George and Dave Badman, created the National Poo Museum on March 25, 2016. It has since become such a popular traveling exhibit that the three men want to give it a permanent home.
They have a crowdfunding campaign launched to help get it off the ground. I’m curious to know how many people will “flush their money down the drain”—so to speak—to fund this grand opening. Lol (Seriously though, good for them for finding a very unlikely niche and then making money off, well, poo! Not many can tote that on their resume. They literally turned crap into gold. Bravo!)
But what kind of poo is attracting such large turds (I mean herds) of people? Their website states, “Poo at the Zoo was the first phase of our development of the Poo Museum. It featured an exhibition of twenty kinds of poo, encapsulated and displayed in illuminated resin spheres.”
Most of the poo on exhibit is of animal origin. They go on to say, “These included elk, lion, human baby poo, a tawny owl pellet containing bones and teeth, 140 million-year-old fossil poo (coprolites) and a child’s shoe with a cat poo inside it.”
Their mission statement states, “The National Poo Museum’s mission is to lift the lid on the secret world of poo - to examine our relationship with it and to change forever the way we think about this amazing substance." Haha. “Lift the lid”—nice touch.
