Is Elephant Poo On Your Child's Wish List

If you are going to be in Topeka this weekend I have a great event for you and the kids.   The Topeka Zoo is holding a very interesting crafts fair on Sunday.  In order to raise a little money this year the Topeka Zoo is going to be selling decorated piles of elephant poo. Yes, you read that right.  They are selling poo.  For  about $10 you can buy your very own pile of poo that has been painstakingly decorated by loyal zoo volunteers.  I am not sure if decorated poo is on your child's wish list this year, but it sounds pretty neato to me.
Zoo Keeper Kim Doman says, "But they have looked at us a little funny when we've been up there picking up and scavenging. They're not really sure what we're up to."

Little do they know they're deposit is about to turn a profit. Zoo volunteers are decorating the elephant waste and plan to sell it. Volunteer Karen Taylor says, "After it's dried. Because when it's fresh, it has a terrible odor as you can imagine."

Sadly, I don't live anywhere near this zoo. If I did I would happily pack up the kids and take them to see the Topeka Zoo's craft fair this Sunday.  I have seen lots of elephants and been to lots of zoos, but I have never seen hand-decorated elephant poo.
