I guess it was inevitable. Someone was going to figure out a way to make money off of crap. Why not human waste, or stool, as the “Beneficial bugs” article (Sept. 24 news story) reported; transferring stool from a healthy individual into the intestines of someone infected with some bacteria.
Young animals do it instinctively. So why not we humans?
I predict a huge new market being created, trading on the NYSE. Would it be multiple small businesses or a few large corporations?
Buying and processing stool: Will there be a store at the mall next door to Victoria’s Secret? Or would it become voluntary, like giving blood? Donating stool. What a legacy.
What advertising firm would sign on to pitch stool? What jingle would it use? “I Left My Stool in San Francisco”?
I’m healthy. Where do I sign up? I guess that’s one way to clean out Congress. Once politicians hear of this, they’ll flock to get paid big bucks for what they have been doing for years: dishing out stool.
My advice? Include Ex-Lax in your stock portfolio.
