    This is somewhat disturbing yet fascinating, one of those things where your first impluse is to scream and yell, but your darkside makes you look thru each month.

    I owned several pet supply stores and we sold several hundred of these each year, at one point this calendar was one of the hottest gifts in the pet gift industry. I just can't imagine having to stage the shots and having to find the "props"....

    Only reason I'm posting this is to show that you can make money with just about any idea, no matter how weird.

    Funny thing is.... technically some of these shots are quite good....


    Once this catches on there will be Noobs in the forum asking:

    "Help!.. What is the best lens for taking pictures of S**T?"

    or


    "I have my first S**T shoot coming up next week... what is the best aperture for taking pictures of S**T?"
