In a week when I expect them to find that there is horse-meat in Digestive Biscuits and perhaps even in my sofa, I'm prepared to believe anything.
We all know that the Internet is a dangerous place and that You Tube is where you go for those weird "fail" clips and footage of cute cats that you endlessly forward to your friends. Then, before you know it, you have no friends left. It just serves you right.
So, at the risk being ostracised, I am forwarding you this link from the Philippines (yes I should have heard the warning bells) that I think is about making cosmetics from "natural" substances.
Before you look at it, be aware that it contains images of bulls' testicles, but that's not why I'm forwarding it, (honestly, Matt Johnson).
The reason why I am posting it is that it also contains footage of nightingales at Paxton Pits, shot by my friend Phil K Smith. Apparently they make a facial from Nightingale droppings, and who am I to argue with that? I don't want to be sued, but I'm guessing they use droppings from an aviary containing birds that might be called nightingales, but wouldn't be the same species as ours. At least they are (probably) not horse droppings.
Are you ready? Here's the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hM8KRI5JC1c
