Fishermen Find $1.5m Worth of 'Whale Vomit

https://www.newsweek.com/fishermen-1-5m-whale-vomit-lifted-out-poverty-yemen-1596801

35 men from Yemen found the carcass of a sperm whale floating in the sea, which turned out to contain more than $1.5 million worth of rare and valuable ambergris, Ambergris is a strange, waxy substance with an almost rock-like appearance—sometimes referred to as "whale vomit"—that is produced in the intestines of sperm whales.

Ambergris has also been highly valued by perfumers as the substance helps scents last longer.

Now who the heck had an inkling of an idea that whale puke could make perfume scents last longer.

"Hey Marcel, lets try mixing in some of this whale puke and see if the scent lasts longer."

I found that stuff in my kitchen sump.   Grew so big it blocked the float switch from working.  Spilled over outside, not a pretty smell.  I could be rich but I chucked it all.   Foul smell!!

Next time the wifey spritzes up, tell her about the whale puke.
