Hitting the Fan

Hungry for culture? The (creatively named) named South Florida Museum in downtown Bradenton will host a display of fossilized excrement.

poopIn August, Guinness World Records certified George Frandsen’s coprolite collection as the world’s largest collection of fossilized dung. They meticulously inspected each coprolite specimen to determine if it was a true poop fossil or just a wanna-be fossilized poop, because, apparently, phony fossilized poop is a thing. South Florida Museum staff supervised the hours-long count to help ensure all of the Guinness World Records rules were followed.

[Gushed curator Sam Henky:] “Twenty million year old crocodilian coprolites! Spirals of fossilized fish poop! Bags of mineralized frog feces! That is a good day at work.” [via]

“Coprolite.” Just 2/3 the calories as regular Copro. Just two-turds the calories!

Can you imagine what items you’ll find in the gift shop? Hint: bring extra plastic bags.

    Hmm, “below” what? Excrement is our bread and butter.

    The Cincinnati Redlegs just couldn’t get it done,
    The Dolphins new plight song, Comfortably Numb.
    The Federal Reserve, the silence of the clams

    This is genuine? No shit?

    Isn’t “oil” another term for “fossilized dino poop?” Inquiring (and detached) minds want to know.
