One downstate zoo's crap creations are selling like hot cakes.

The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, Ill. has made nearly $21,000 from sales of necklaces and Christmas ornaments made from pieces of reindeer droppings that are dehydrated, sterilized and spray-painted with glitter.

Seriously.

They're called "Magical Reindeer Gems" and according to the zoo they're supposed to help Santa and his reindeer find their way to your home.
