Wow, that's nasty.

The late afternoon sun catches flecks of matter suspended in the thick liquid.

Wonder what that would be?

Mmmm... goat oil....

Amusing Quote: ...they grind and press to make a nutty oil...

Nutty oil...classic...

Weird...goats in trees?

Reminds me of this sketch from Python:

"The Undigested Pits" wbagnfarb

Where'd the rest of the article go?? Does it actually end with the flecks, or am I stupid today?

Can someone inform c-bol that his blog is down? :(
Wait...i guess i just did didn't I?

Those nuts looks like the nuts I saw my Uncle Cledus eat the last time he was hear, so now I know why my big brother says Cledus talks shit!

I don't think I would ever use nutty oil that came out of a butt-hole, because that stinks!

It was, but it's back up now, Cad. :)

(psst .. RC .. yer languge, son, yer languge!)

Sounds sorta like that "Civet Cat Poop" coffee.

You're to late somebody elses mom, my mom washed my mouth out with Irish Spring, which didn't taste so good, but at least it's better than Ivory, because now I smell like a Leperkon!

Sorry bout the language, Dave, Judi!

JimW - Thanks I was trying to remember what kind of coffee was, um, processed in that manner. It's not actually a cat, but a "civet cat", which if I remember correctly is more closely related to the skunk.

I have never tried it, but I have heard reliable reports that it's really great coffee.

It's just as well he doesn't have power. Then he'd know about tropical storm 'Beta,' as in "Beta get outta here."

Beta is probably gonna hit us hard, here in Panajachel.

And, living here amongst very poor people, I can tell you the reaction to the news that the pits are valuable. They'll harvest as many as possible, as quickly as possible, so that they can cash in, before their neighbors do the same.

So, what's the oil called? Pooped Pits?

Goats in trees, food made out of.. you know.

I think I made a mistake buying generic Nyquil. Things seem a bit off.

I had an aunt and uncle who were into "organic" foods, for raising crops as well as their own dietary preferences.

One aspect of this was that they kept goats, for the milk, which is healthier (? reputedly so, NEway) than cow's milk.

Aunt Mandy also fertilized her garden with the goat poop.

She grew the best-tasting strawberries I've ever eaten ... just sayin' ...

*zips in*

I just skimmed the article, but if it says what I think it says, then my question is:

How can poop be edible???

*zips out before getting answer*
eeeewwwwwwwwwwww

Actually, the word for an Irish sprite is spelled "leprechaun". BTW, "The Irish Sprites" WBAGNFA group of female backing vocalists for U2.

Sondra - I read the article a couple of times to try to see what the oil was called, but couldn't find it, so I simply referred to it as goat-poop oil. Gets the point across, no? Seriously though, I'd like to know what it's called so I can be forewarned if it pops up on some trendy NYC menu.

Eleanor - assumably the poop is washed off and the undigested seeds/nuts are pressed to extract the oil ... which is supposedly edible.
