I think this whale might have been at Down the Hatch last week

Whale 'vomit' sparks cash bonanza - BBC News

An Australian couple who picked up an odd-looking fatty lump from a quiet beach are in line for a cash windfall.

Leon Wright and his wife took home a 14.75kg lump of ambergris, found in the innards of sperm whales and used in perfumes after it has been vomited up.

I'm not sure if it was this whale and his apparently valuable vomit, but there was something unquestionably inhuman left as a "deposit" in a sink of the bathroom at DTH last week.
