a lump of sperm whale vomit – which is used in perfumes such as Chanel No.5 to amplify the scent.

I think those names came up for consideration back in the 60's, and the Beatles rejected them both.

Ken Willman originally paid little attention to the dirty yellow rock his dog Madge dug up... I couldn't understand why Madge was so interested in it. It smelled horrible."

To a dog, the more horrible something smells, the better. Finding a horrible smelling lump was probably the highlight of Madge's week.

"Mr Willman says he will be sending a small amount of the vomit to France..."

And, really, isn't this something all of us should do?

Thar she blows...chunks.

I don't know whale vomit but the purple spheres sound like someone hit the motherlode in the legendary hemorrhoid mines of Arizona.
