Paca Poo

A variant on an old sales addage: if alpaca manure sells, sell alpaca manure. But of course marketing still has its place. The product will be called 'paca poo.'

A school boosters club in St. Charles, Il., will be selling alpaca manure to raise funds. In place of baked goods or a barbecue, their product is 30 lbs bags of alpaca pellets for use in your garden. It really does make for great fertilizer, and given its size and texture, it's easy to work with.

I applaud ingenuity like this. Maybe you can think of similar sales for you local charitable fundraisers. How about some naked mole-rat droppings? Mangy Chupacabra or Sasquatch fur? Or cicada molts? So many possibilities.

Thanks for the article, Ida.
