Welp, this is as good as any reason to pack up and take a trip to London. The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art & Natural History opened its doors Wednesday and contains artifacts ranging from Dodo skeletons and Picassos to ancient sex toys and 19th-century babies preserved in formaldehyde. And also, celebrity poop.
If Wynd is to be believed, he got his hands on (figuratively, we hope) excrement from Amy Winehouse and Kylie Minogue, as well as a vial of Russell Crowe's urine, and he wants to share these oddities with the world.
So how'd he acquire all this stuff? He's an extensive traveler, but Crowe's piss was supposedly a gift, and his explanation for the famous poops is "I used to drink." As far as a Certificate of Authenticity, The Winehouse jar has a label that reads, "I, Viktor Wynd, do most solemnly swear that I witnessed Amy Winehouse pooing into this jar on 25th November 2010. Signed, Viktor Wynd."
"I charge five pounds for a sniff," he told The Daily Beast.
Wynd calls himself a multidisciplinary artist, and in 2006 he founded The Last Tuesday Society, which has thrown masquerade balls, literary lectures and now sponsors the museum. Basically, Viktor Wynd sounds like the most interesting man in the world (Dos Equis be damned).
