Fossils and stuff

These are fossilized fish that I got a number of years ago. I was told that the big dark streak in it is fish poop. Whether it is or not, it makes me chuckle.

Them fish probably died of "ich". Might not want to get them too close to the Bod of Ich.

Just saying.

And the quality of the photo is really good, too.

Mr B, I'll make sure he stays safe. :-)

Jen, anytime! ;-)

Danielle, thanks! I was hoping my science-minded buddies would like this one.

Makes me think of when I was in law school and we'd order pitchers, and whoever was the last to finish their beer had to buy the next pitcher. We'd chant "FINISH IT, FINISH IT" while he/she chugged the remainder. It sounded for all the world like we were saying, "Fish shit! Fish shit!"

Wait, how do you get to be the classy sister when you're the one with a poop collection?

That one fish probably saw whatever it was coming.

I'd shit, too. :)

Looks like poop to me!

I have several fossils myself(not including L). Two of them have been handed down on my Dad's side of the family.
I hesitate to post about them, as our state has decided to confiscate "historical relics" from the private sector. :(

That inspires me to post a few of my fossiiliized findings whenever I can find them. ;-)

Eclectic, you guys really knew how to have fun.

Chia, I think there might be more than fish shit to law school, though.

Bucky, because mine is fossilized. Two-week-old kitty litter pan does not qualify as fossilized. Sorry. :-)

MD, that, somehow, seems likely.

tshsmom, I bought this piece and I'm not sure where it came from. Too bad you'll have to keep yours hidden. :-(

Ladymadaysia, let me know if you do!

It might be caveman boogers. That would be why the fish died.

It makes me laugh too! Thanks for the chuckle.

Gosh..don't show that to my friend Gina. Her Filipino family would cook the fish poop and eat it. No kidding. That's one of the dishes they served at her son's 13th birthday (which, I might add, I found out TOO LATE what it was).

Courtney, you know, that doesn't surprise me at all. :-)

Nick, um, thanks!

Tweety, I'm glad you enjoyed them. :-)

Kranki, now there's an original one. Fossilized boogers are just as gross/cool (pick one) as fish poop.

Laurie, so happy to give you a chuckle. Hugs back!

Jim, oh yuck! That's really gross!
