There’s money in moose turds

Mary Winchenbach gets excited when she sees “a moose take a turd.” Who doesn’t, Mary?

Her love of moose turds has made her an internet star after her story raced around the intertubes this week.

It started when a woman stumbled upon her wares at your basic Maine flea market.

She makes art — and apparently a living (although her fulltime gig is at a seawood fertilizer plant) –from moose turds, and suddenly our career choice seems misguided.

Winchenbach, 57, started her business — Turdy Works — a decade ago, the Boston Globe says.

“People need to lighten up and chill out and have a good time, ” she says.

    Maine: the way life should be. (It’s the sign that greets you after driving over the bridge into the state on I-95, and it’s mostly true.)

    • …except for that Governor of theirs…

        He is one of several reasons I included the “mostly” qualifier!

      Maine is on my short list of retirement options. This woman may bump it up a bit.

    Ooo! Moose poo.
    Think I’ll scoop
    A bunch of said poop,
    And fashion some crafts
    From all of this crap.

    I blame my High School Counselor who never told me this was an option 🙂

    And I thought the plastic moose I got one Xmas which popped brown jelly beans out of its butt was untoward.
