Bet I got the first one on the block!

WARNING: The following column contains content that some readers might find offensive. If the words "kangaroo scrotum," for instance, make you uneasy, then please don't read this sentence. Whoops. Sorry about that. Forget you read that last sentence. Well, not the last sentence. But the one with "kangaroo scrotum" in it. Dang. Let's start over. -Charles Memminger, Star Bulletin

I am obviously talking about my brand new Kangaroo Scrotum leather bag! (Well at least as new as could be after the Kangaroo was done with it). They are all the rage!

My cubicle neighbor Sid was getting me some change out of a nice seamless leather bag and I made a comment about it. He told me it was a tanned leather roo scrotum! I said "Oh." and immediately looked for someplace to wash my hands!

Anyways, yesterday he said he had some extra ones (can you ever really have too many?) and wanted me to have one. I thanked him graciously for it and now I'm trying to figure out what to put in it! Obviously it should be something small and valuable! The package said that the old Australian pioneers tied it around their neck and stored their gold in it. It might be a great place for ball bearings, threaded nuts or some family jewelry (OK already, enough with THOSE jokes!)

How do you get the raw materials for these anyways? The bags are supposed to be good luck, but it doesn't seem to have worked for the original owner. Chalk that right up there with rabbit's feet.

It has even made it into the local news. You can check out Charles Memminger's column in the Star Bulletin regarding this very topic by clicking HERE.

Well if you want to be the first on your block to have one, you can get one for yourself at the "Scrotum Gift Shop" in Australia. They come in all kinds of shapes and sizes and there is a price break if you order in bulk, up to 1000 scrotums! (OUCH!)

Good to know.

Peace, Love and ...Oh never mind,

Is this part of your mid-life crisis?
