A man struck some intestinal gold on the the beach, as he discovered a bit of whale vomit that is worth more than a brand new 2013 Range Rover.

Ken Wilman, 50, is the lucky man who discovered the whale vomit (words strung together in an order I could’ve never predicted), as he was out walking his dog on Morecambe beach when the dog began to sniff a lump of rock.

“At first I thought it was a football but as I got closer I realized it was a big stone,” said Wilman.

“She wouldn’t leave it alone. I picked it up and it smelt horrible so I knocked it with my walking stick and a small lump came off.

“I put both pieces back on the beach but something in the back of my mind told me it might be something unusual.

“I came back home and searched online. I had an inkling it was whale vomit and when I saw pictures I realized it was.

“When I read how valuable it was I got Madge straight back in the car and drove back to the beach to bring it home.”

What makes the whale vomit so valuable? The vomit, also known as ambergris, is used to make perfume.

Mr. Wilman is a single parent and has been unemployed since a 2007 motorcycle accident. He says he’ll use the money to take his 15-year-old son to Machu Picchu, Peru.

“Madge will also be getting a treat for her find by being fed her favorite sausages every day from now on!”

I’ve never heard of someone who better deserved to stumble upon whale vomit in my life. Congrats, Mr. Wilman.
