now I can show you

"Dung beetles are powerfully addicted to fresh dung. Beetles are alerted as soon as a nearby animal lifts its tail to defecate and passes a little odorus gas."
Ok. I just thought this was so damn cute I had to buy it. Its only about 3" across and has three tiny legs on the underside. I sent it to my son for his 40th birthday and he immediately proclaimed it his "new wasabi bowl" and will "break it out at the next sushi party." (Oh! So that's what it is!)

I L-O-V-E that bowl. That is about the funniest thing I've seen in awhile.

I had to chuckle in spite of my self. Who but a gardener, or maybe an entomologist would love that sentiment. You have a great sense of humor!
