Look at this crap Disney is selling

No. Really. It’s supposed to look like crap. Animal crap. Or, if you prefer, poo.

I can’t imagine what compelled someone to think up this stuff.


A new shop at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is serving up desserts that look like varieties of animal droppings. Four kinds of poo are now in the case amid the caramel apples and marshmallow treats at Zuri’s Sweets Shop, which opened in the Africa section of the park last week. Word is spreading fast. Even toddlers are walking up to the glass and pointing to the poo. The consensus opinion: They think their poo doesn’t stink. I feel OK printing “poo” in a family newspaper because my itemized receipt from ultra-clean Disney clearly indicates “Poo, Giraffe.” The desserts are not labeled as poo in the case. Instead, it’s the four animals that, um, inspired the goodies: giraffe, elephant, rhino and cotton-top tamarin. Signs instruct folks to “match the species.” The most visually unappealing choice, I’d say, comes from the giraffe. It’s a stack of five chocolate-brown pellets, each about the size of a large grape. Yep, tiny balls of poo. Let’s just say the taste is fudgy, like a brownie.

Read on and see a snapshot of this edible pile of poo. 

I think I’ll pass.

So to speak.
