What a load of crap.

Wonder how much it would fetch on ebay with a Dave Barry signature on it?

i guess i'm just weird, but i'm finding it awfully difficult to get excited about fossil feces from a carnivorous dinosaur.

frenchman what??? is this salute to dung day?

***singing***
"I'm a coprolite and I'm okay...."

See? This is why I save all my best poos and bury them in the yard. So that the scientists of tomorrow can dig them up.

And people call me weird.

I guess I could put some pants on before heading out with the shovel.

At least Dave waited until his 3rd post of the day before getting totally gross!

Dave, there should have been a warning!
EEEEWWWWW!

Cropolite???...that's funny!!

One of my roommates in college had an odd fascination with his excrement. He could talk for an hour about length, girth, texture, etc. Let's just say I'm sure the folks over at Polaroid never intended their product to be used for his fecal documentation. Now I see he has landed a cushy job finding and working with coprolites.

Coprolite = scientific term for Corn Poopie.

They got a lot of poop in Canada.

Massive ancient excrement, dude!

Coprolite!?! You should see the Copro classic! [Hey-O!]

"probe specialist Lewis C. Calk"
*snark*
aslo-The Frenchman Formation wbagnfarb.

About 200 associated fragments weathered downslope from the larger mass and would have contributed to the original volume of the feces-- estimated to have been over 2.4 liters (about 2 1/2 quarts)That's a half a gallon of poop. Then again, considering the size of elephant plops, that doesn't seem so big.

First Album: Gigantic Poop-Scooper!

Paleontologists delight
In a truly magnificent sight
"We're truly sans words
Seeing T. Rex's turds
Does it get research 'moving'? Quite!"

Even though it's now fossilized,
His BMs were once 'super-sized'
By searching his spoor
You'll get a virtual tour
Of his colonic 'hows', 'whats' and "whys?"

Jeff -
Fossil Feces has an auxiliary band for elementary school-aged kids - Dinosaur Doots

Uh, excuse me, but would'nt "crapolite" sound better.
Sincerely,
The Canadian Dino-poop Association

other nfarb:
Cretaceous Crappings
Dinosaur Turd
Lewis C. Calk and the Electron Probe Specialists
and the winner is:
Tyrannosaurus Bite Force

Jeff,
I REALLY appreciate the tip... but it's not working. I'll keep trying.
*****sighs******
I hate computers, actually.

An ancient load of crap by any other name is still an ancient load of crap, and smells as old.

My college english teacher had a collection of many copralites arranged in a beautiful velvet box. One day a newspaper did a story on his collection, never realizing they were pieces of petrified poo poo.

DougBo - I have them written out in a way simple enough for even me, Computer Moron, to understand - if you're interested, e-mail me!

djtonyb can type out the actual characters for html tags. Let me give it a shot.

Jeff - how to type special characters here

OK Eleanor, I have emailed you. Thanks.
I didn't mean to turn the comments section into a computer tutorial, but thanks to all for the info.

Tyler,
Evil would be linking to a Barry Manilow site.

Insom: excellent work.

heh heh - DougBo mentioned BM on a fossilized coprolite thread. How appropriate!

insom' - here are your daily kudos.

This blog has turned into a king-sized coprolite.

DougBo- you are right, but I was too ascared.

IT DID NOT WORK~!

%$%#$*(T$%$^%&&$%^#@!!!!

See the copro, coprolite banner
The fossilized sh1t from Havanna
See the copro, coprolite banner
Science's passion dished up a big ratioin
See the copro ... don't fall in it.

for future reference - the longest game of 'Twenty Questions' I was ever a part of ,had the answer 'a dinosaur coprolite'.

I think it was classified as a 'mineral'.

I'll try again.
EVIL here

DougBo - dude, take a deep breath. Other bloglits have done it and so can you.

Read this carefully. Click the Preview button to see if it makes an active link.

.. and this one would probably be 'bigger than a breadbox'.

ok, I got it now, hehe...

Tyler, I took the Test of Evil and determined that I am Good. Thanks!

So I was wrong. Now I got it:

If it doesn't work this time, I will give up

*loves Dougbo a Xanax*

I'm guessing that speciman came from an ancient Canadian breathalyzer test.

Thx Sly,
MOTW, the hyperlink is not blue when I preview or post. I am typing all the

Thanks friends.
I got it. Unfortunately my first link was generic, but just wait!

Perhaps you should try using your powers for GOOD, not evil, Dougbo.

Thx everyone. I'm going to go lie down for a while.

Nice.... Petrified Poop might also make a wonderful band name.

Nice.... Petrified Poop might also make a wonderful band name.

Nice... I think that Petrified Poop would make a wonderful band name as well

Grandma's doilies might not BAGNFARB, but who cares?

We get the idea.

Crap- sorry all- I hate my computer.

Geezer brain on partial lock, but didn't the Coprolites appear on "American Bandstand" back in the late 50's? Had kind of a Doo-Wop sound. Wore the shark-skin jackets with the velvet lapels. Peg pants.

Thx everyone. I'm going to go lie down for a while.
We all need to lie down - we're exhausted just from watching your efforts! Whew!!


WAY TO GO, DougBo!

Dave, I would really appredciate it if you could stop drawing attention to Canadians and their poop. It's starting to get so I can't travel - I'm starting to get asked some very odd questions by Customs Inspectors and don't even talk about the body cavity searches!

Dave, you're getting a lot of messages from people who rarely post up. I think you have an underrepresented readership here. If you ask me (or not), you should lay off setting Barbie's underware (not software) on fire with your rollerblades and spend more time looking for c***.

They should have called it "crapolite".

Peri - how do I become a customs inspector at an airport near you? ;oP
