Wow, whale vomit.  That must be like, one of those things, that nobody really wants, which is maybe rare, so it might be valuable, except really NOBODY wants it.

Unless you're a Whale Researcher who'se desperate.  Let's give the few remaining Whale Researcher's a break, huh?

Ah, it was Ambergris.  I hear King Henry the VIII used to grate some onto his morning eggs.  Tastes sweet, I'm told.

It's not Whale Vomit.  It's Whale Bile, solidified, floated around the ocean for a few years, cast up on a beach, found, lost, and found again.

From the article, apparently it IS valuable.
