Well now I'm curious!  I sent the seller a message to inquire whether it was a photo of the actual stick that would be sent vs simply a representative example of a stick we might get in similar condition....

Questionable finds are posted here so regularly, it prompted me to suggest a separate topic for them a while ago. (After all, posting about them here in Great Finds also requires one to be sarcastic, when the goofiness of the Find itself should be sufficient.) But though the idea met with general enthusiasm, the admins remained silent, until I finally wrung what entertainment I could out of the idea and gave up.

However, this thread, within Great Finds could be made sticky, and we could post all the NSGFs to it in one endless stream. That'd be okay with me. For now I'll leave it in the hands of you, my fellow NSGF enthusiasts, and see if it picks up any steam, stickiness-wise.

LOL! It's used, though. Presumably, all sticks are used, having been used by the tree. What would an unused stick look like? One grown in a lab maybe? A stick lab?

"Excellent condition. Great gift with endless possibilities. Cruelty-free, was not forcibly removed from donor tree." I wonder if it 100% organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and fair trade certified.

That is hilarious. eBay even has poo on a stick.

Also I see this NSGF is now up to $500. There almost needs to be a chart to watch these price fluctuations. It's like the bitcoin of keyboards.

JP:
This sold for $299.
