just what a gal has in mind when she gets the gift of jewelry…

Miller Park Zoo, in Bloomington, Illinois is selling a special necklace, called the Magical Reindeer “Gem” at their zoo boutique.  It looks like a snowman, but if you check out the lower torso …it’s made of 100% reindeer poop.  Each of Rudolph’s droppings are dehydrated, sanitized in an autoclave machine, painted and drilled that sits all pretty on your chest and just inches away from your mouth.

The idea came about from the zoo’s Superintendent, John Tobias. The website explains:

John’s grandmother use to gather her grandchildren and take them outside on Christmas Eve to scatter home made chocolate chips. She would tell the children that the chips would attract Santa and his reindeer to their home, because the reindeer would know that other reindeer had already visited and left droppings…

Er.  There’s a HUGE difference between chocolate chips and an actual reindeer turd, but the story behind it is cute.
