Real-Life Radagast Bird Poo! Can't Post

It turns out Radagast is not so much terrible in regards to hygiene as he is merely ahead of his time!! Laugh

A short article (presumably from the Associated Press) appeared in my paper this morning, and I could not help but think about the facet of WETA's design for the Brown Wizard that has garnered more hate than anything else:

"NEW YORK - Bird poop for beauty?
"That's what goes into facials at a luxury spa where the traditional Japanese treatment using imported Asian nightingale excrement mixed with rice bran goes for $180 a pop.
"About 100 women and men go into the Shizuka New York skin care salon, just off Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, each month to get the treatment, which is promoted as a way to keep the face soft and smooth using an enzyme in the poop to gently exfoliate the skin.
"Spa owner Shizuka Bernstein, a Tokyo native married to an American, has been offering what she calls the Geisha Facial for about five years."

Now, I cannot imagine for the life of my why people would do this in real life (much less pay for it), but it makes Radagast seem a bit more believable now, doesn't he? Shocked Tongue

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."
