Well it’s spring and the global financial system is crashing hard and fast, which are two very good reasons to get into some serious vege gardening and fertilise your fruit trees, folks. As for the latter, an easy quick fix – manure, mulch and a good soak. Even better, make up a poo cordial out of a few cow dungs in a bin full of water. Make sure the lid is a tight fit to avoid mosquito breeding. When the cordial is a rich dark brown, mix 1 part to 20 parts water and distribute a few buckets around the roots of the trees. Fruit producing requires heavy feeding so it’s worth doing every few weeks during spring. Before you know it you’ll be hunting down preserving jars…

Last night the garden bed of a residence on Brown St, Copley, was soiled with a mystery human stool excreted in situ by a trespasser.

A medical professional who was eye witness to footprints and the healthy foot-long specimen strongly suspected the perpetrator to be a well fed, medium to large caucasian male with a high fibre diet. The victim is at a loss to explain why no toilet paper was found at the scene of the crime.

Closer inspection of the evidence will be required in order to reveal whether the offending defecation was an act of territorial behaviour, the bizarre perversion of koprolagnia by proxy, an act of vengeance or merely the result of benign confusion as to which orifice is best put to use as a form of communication.

The matter has now been placed in the hands of the police and forensic investigators who have indicated that they wish to get to the bottom of it.
