A man whose dog found a lump of rare and valuable whale sick on a beach is expecting to be able to sell it for more than £100,000.

Ken Wilman, 50, was out walking on Morecambe beach when his dog Madge started sniffing a lump of rock.

He told Sky News: "At first I thought it was a football but as I got closer I realised it was a big stone.

Arghhhh, these stories make me sick:



You can buy mine for a mere score.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

LMAO I just read the story. He found it where my friend lives. I'll have to tell her to be on the look out for more whale barf as she could make a nice bit of change.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Whale vomit is also known as ambergris and is used to make perfume. It is formed in the digestive system of sperm whales and has a very strong and unpleasant aroma.


Yep, I have spelt some of these perfumes on the tube...arggghhh.

Anyway, I`m off to the beach with my rubber gloves, dog and bucket.....hopefully I can send you all a postcard in a few days time. :w00t:

No, but I can always bung it in the freezer for a few hours, will that increase the price?


Are you looking to buy? :w00t:

Well it's much cheaper.

It's going for a song at an auction for third world countries.
