This has got to be one of the strangest things I have bought. My son had a field trip to the Bronx Zoo. As our little group visited the gift shop I came across this little handmade notebook. It wasn't until after that I read the note card on the back.

The paper is made form elephant poo.

No lie. Here is there website.

Love the name - Mr. Ellie Pooh's Elephant Dung Paper. Even the pencil included is recycled from found pencil and hand sharpened.

(Yes you can actually see the grass that passed through the elephant in the paper. There is no smell and it is sanitized)

I came across some picture frames made from poo recently. Just because they CAN make things with poo doesn't mean they SHOULD! Besides, that poo would make good fertilizer. Maybe instead of tossing the used poo paper, you should compost it? Thanks for the laugh!

You gotta wonder when the maker realized he/she had the talent to convert elephant poo into paper. The decision to actually DO it I assume had something to do with very strong alcohol.

uh, it's interesting, I guess.... but at the same time there's something that's just *wrong* about it, know what I mean? So I agree with Abby.

And I was thinking sorta the same thing as Toni, you know, hidden talent + alcohol. {gg}
