The stinky gifts are then sold on to tourists visiting Chengdu panda sanctuary. 'We used to spend at least £400 a month to get rid of the droppings but now they can prove lucrative as half of them will be sold as souvenirs,' said Jing Shimin from the centre.

I find it rather amusing. Though, I can't say it'd want one.

That looks as if one touch would make it fall apart. They must do something to harden or dry the poo after the process.

This reminds me of the fossilized dinosaur droppings I once bought in North Carolina.

Probably less dangerous than most products coming out of China.

Must be a ****ty job forming the bears by hand. I could hardly bear the job myself; I don't know how the Chinese could ever handle it. Especially for the crappy pay, but then again, considering the poverty level over there, I guess even the most meager of wages is like honey to them. But man, to have that kind of life sure would stink.

I thought this thread was going to be about Winnie the Pooh.

I think it's a good idea, however weird or stinky it might sound. In China, anything's a job!
