This is the type of story that warms the heart, a young man, on a wild adventure along at Hengistbury Head in southern England stumbled on something that looked like bread, but felt like a rock. Turns out it was neither, it was part of the hard rock candy mountain that is whale vomit. Apparently this stuff is used in women's perfume to keep the scent of it lingering.
post script: Who figured that out? That whale vomit makes perfume last longer? Some dude really pissed at his girlfriend would be my guess.
