Poo-PourriTM Smells Like Daffodils

I never thought the day would come when dung was hung to freshen up the stench in the air, but alas the day is here and the Creative Paper Wales company is proud of their Poo-pourriTM.

Sure the sheep poo the company collects is completely sterilized in a specially designed pressure cooker boiling at over 120 degrees centigrade. Sure it is then washed repeatedly over a period of days until the poo has lost approximately half its original weight. Sure, this now super sterile rich, liquid fertilizer is washed out and the remaining fibre body is then beat and blended with other recycled material and eventually pressed into paper so that it no longer resembles and very likely no longer smells of poo, but still an air-freshener made from poo is just so… ironic!

So what if their Poo-pourriTM is strung with Llanwenog Wool or that they are Daffodil Fragranced or Fresh Cut Grass Fragranced? Isn’t it still perfume on poo? Would you hang Poo-pourriTM in your car or around your home? Perhaps it would be ideal in the bathroom hung above your recycled toilet paper. What do you think?

Corrections to your blog

Hi Gloria,

A few points - as an inventors' site you might first be interested to know that my professional training is in Intellectual Property Law (I was the EIPIN scholar at the Intellectual Property Research Institute 2004-5 before setting up the paper business).

This leads me to my second point - we are Creative Paper Wales, and Sheep Poo PaperTM is one of our trademarks, denoting the origin of our goods, as is Poo-PourriTM - We would appreciate you amending your blog so as to reflect the use of these monikers are trademarks with the TM suffix, thank you.

Thirdly, in your article you have misconstrued the production process rather significantly - we wash OUT the rich thick liquid fertilizer, for return to productivity as fertiliser, it is the remaining fibre body which is blended and beaten to make the paper. This is perhaps a very significant difference from your blog piece and again, we would appreciate a correction being made to the article.

Having passed my foundation examinations for the Chartered Institute of Patent Agents, and also for the Institute of Trade Mark Attorneys in 2005 I decided to not go into legal practice, but rather to take these skills into commerce in a more primary way - the idea of Creative Paper Wales was to make enough money from poo to invest in other exciting innovations in the UK, where our commercial experience and IP technical background could make a real difference (with some hard cash investment also) to the likely chances of success for others. We are just entering this phase of the business now, and anyone seeking investment is invited to contact me at Lawrence@CreativePaper Wales.co.uk

Very kindest regards

Sure?

What is with the bizarre use of the word Sure to begin every sentence?

Company's?

Some people have to much improve their spelling and grammar. See two comments above.

I make no apologies for the split infinitive.

Is the Larry Toms post an example of Welsh humor?
