The $960 piece of shit

Posted By on Thu, May 1, 2008 at 1:58 PM

It’s an axiom long known: what someone considers shit, someone else considers gold. In this case, the expression has never quite been more literal. Steve Tsenges, a Fairport Harbor resident and owner of OurPet’s, a company that manufactures odor control products for animals, just bid $960 at a New York auction in an effort to acquire … 130 million year old dinosaur dung. That’s $500 more than its appraised value. Tsenges, who walked away the big winner, told the AP that “poop is a big business in the pet industry.” The 71-year old hopes to display the dinosaur dung at his company’s booth at trade shows. – Rebecca Meiser
