Send manure in the post as a joke

A farmer from the Jura has diversified into mail-order manure - the perfect gift for someone who has offended you

A FARMER from the Jura has diversified into mail-order manure - the perfect gift for someone who has offended you.

For €8.50 plus €5.50 postage www.fumier.com sends 100g of manure from the Montbéliarde cows, whose milk makes Comté cheese.

They come in a wooden cheese box - a Jura tradition - and include a personalised message.

Nasty messages are banned however and the gift is not anonymous - it is not meant for "revenge" but as a "joke", inventor Roger Combotte says.

He has had to decline some orders for politician’s rivals, but they are popular for people’s exes, he said.
