You may be looking at the picture above and thinking, who the hell would want feces from a horse for $200?
SOURCE-Are you interested in a $200 jar of poop from 1997 Kentucky Derby winner Silver Charm? If so, the jars by Kentucky for Kentucky went on sale May 1. The Lexington Herald-Leader reports artist Coleman Larkin is the mastermind behind the expensive crap.
Sales from the “Derby Turds” will go toward Old Friends Farm in Georgetown, a thoroughbred retirement facility Silver Charm calls home. The newspaper says supply of the resin-coated feces is limited.
The market for this? Horse people, of course. Now, it’s easy to make fun of horse people, but that’s not what I’m going to do. Instead, I am going to praise them. Every time I go to the track, I feel like I’m in heaven surrounded by degenerates. Here is a perfect example of one of those degenerates:
OPEN EM UP!!!! OPEN EM UP!!!!
That’s the type of guy buying $200 worth of horse poop.
I absolutely love that you are given a ticket of certification that this is, indeed, the poop from the horse you want it to be from.
Larkin says the most difficult part of the creative project is asking “the type of people that own million-dollar thoroughbreds if I can please have some horse turds to put in jars.”
Uhhhh, yeah. Probably pretty weird to ask that.
