No, I believe you are thinking about the Tassie devil they have face tumors, or the koala they have a sexual transmitted disease, well some of them anyway. Wombats are fairly common in the bush except the hairy nose is a bit rarer. hahahahahahahh... My ex used the screen name Koala for ages. I couldn't help but laugh as I read that. Horrible about the poor marsupials though.

See how ingenious us Aussies are? We've achieved a truly green form of recycling! By the way, as a word of helpful advice, you are better off using Kangaroo dropping tissue paper, Wombats are burrowers and once they've set up 'shop' in your nasal cavity you'll never get them 'out'! The brand name of the tissues are 'Kangaroo Kleenex'. Hmm, yes, ingenious indeed, but I do like the sound of Kangaroo Kleenex! I can just imagine the slogan... "Kangaroo Kleenex, the tissue that gives a kick to your nasal cavities!"

They should try using Human Poop.... Not viable, too costly due to the pre-existing contaminants, Maccers, Coke (a-Cola), fast foods, gm foods you name it. I reckon that the 'animals' are a better bet to start with, once we've got that started, and, learnt more through experience we can build refineries to refine the human variant to produce oil, human crap is an illimitable resource.
