I was watching an episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers and nearly had a ROFL moment. I did manage to stay erect and the floor remained beneath my feet. During his monologue, he somehow got on the subject of the Sperm Whale and introduced me and I would imagine millions of others to AMBERGRIS which is peddled in the dusty souks by herbalists in Morocco and Cairo, where it is an aphrodisiac and stirred by the teaspoon into cups of sweetened tea.
I learned that Ambergris is sometimes called Floating Gold, it begins its existence in the gut of a Sperm Whale and then somehow floats to the surface where fishermen, whalers and others search the high seas for it. I will skip the details because the details have very little to my near ROFL moment. I have put some links at the bottom of this post that you nerds, geeks and others can click on to learn more about this Sperm Whale Vomit.
Learn more if you care to:
- Would you believe there’s a rock band named Amber Gris and it has a song called “Across The Blow” (I detect a pun here)
I do apologize for the hard to understand monotone video but it does help explain stuff.
