Go Brown??? ~ April Fool’s Contest #9 March 28, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor.

The April Fool’s Day Contest continues!   Post your best guess below.

* * * * * 

I stumbled across an inspiring show, Forecast Earth, on the Weather Channel one Sunday night while waiting for the FOX Animation Domination shows to begin at 8 pm.   

Two back-to-back shows touched upon the severe weather changes we face from global warming, specifically an increase in the frequency and intensity of coastal erosion, drought,  tornadoes, wildfires, and heatwaves, and then focused on solutions to these problems, like planting roof top gardens in urban centers to decrease heat build-up.

In the remaining segments, the show featured innovators in the world of Clean Tech (i.e., Green Technology). 

My favorite segment featured . . . Worm Poop!  ~ an organic fertilizer packaged in recycled soda bottles. 

The 25-year-old founder of the business got the idea while growing marijuana in his basement in Canada.  The plants grew lush and tall and potent due to the regular application of worm poop. 

Wanting to capitalize on the idea, he and his smoking buddies tried to borrow venture capital, with no luck ~ they couldn’t find a conservative banker anywhere who wanted to loan money to a bunch of college drop-outs who raised worm poop in the basement while smoking reefer.  

Determined to move forward with their idea, they lowered production costs by packaging the worm poop in recycled 2 litre soda bottles.  


The company is thriving and expanding its innovative product lines to include:  kid’s juice boxes turned into shopping bags and pencil cases, and plastic grocery bags turned into colorful handbags.

I may or may not have smoked a little reefer in my day. But if these guys were stoners, I’m going to say true. Who elce but a bunch of old stoners would think about the endless possibilities of worm poop?

3. Mitzi Swift - March 28, 2010

Ha! I say true!

4. Joanne - March 29, 2010

Does the story have to be all or nothing…? Can part of it be true…PLEASE…? I say it’s realistic FICTION… Other than weed-smoking, I love the ideas presented here…!
