Shiny Dirt Ball Decor - Mr Fed Eat My Dirt For Sale

Shiny Dirt Ball Decor - Mr Fed Eat My Dirt

Have you seen the student loan interest rates these days? With housing rates hitting all time lows, The Fed is really sticking it to students with interest rates that have never been higher. Some loans with interest rates as high as 8.5%. The next financial crisis is bound to be the student debt cliff as more and more students attempt to further their education and quickly become strapped with overwhelming debt, tagged with interest rates that make it close to impossible to ever really get ahead.In looking for ways to finance my education, I too went crawling to the Federal Student Aid Empire, begging for meager scraps on which to sustain myself while I learned about financial risk, investing, returns, compounding interest, and bankruptcy. By the end of it all I was shocked at what the true cost of my education became, as learning institutions quietly raised their tuition 10, 20, 30 percent, thinking we wouldn't notice. Well we have noticed, and we're furious! We only remain silent because what else can we do. We, the silent masses of students, simply can’t do anything about it. We wait in line, fill out another form, and beg for more 8.5% loans that the Fed calls “aid”.

So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and, for a limited time, I’m selling dirt. That’s right, that pretty glossy ball… is dirt, from my own backyard in fact. Right here in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, the backbone of the greatest nation this planet has ever seen, the U S of A. And even though there have been many that have criticized and laughed at me for wanting to test the entrepreneurial spirit, I won’t be swayed.

So how can you help? Well, this beautiful piece of American soil can in fact be yours, as you help me stick it to The Man. I’m not begging for scraps anymore Mr. Fed, I won’t take your outrageous rates, I don’t need to… 'cause now, I’m selling dirt.

Thanks for your support

-This item is actually dirt, collected from a larger pile of similar dirt, in a field, by a stream, in Utah.It has been shaped, formed, and polished requiring over 24 hrs to complete. Included with this purchase is a pamphlet that describes how the piece was made, as well as a stand for display.

Thanks so much for the overwhelming response to this sale. I can't believe it. If you saw the story on KSL news you heard that I was planning on making another dirt ball out of ash. Well, I've begun to do just that. Unfortunately in working with new materials there is always a learning curve which begins to reveal the limitations of the material itself.


So I'm throwing a SCRATCH AND DENT SALE!!!!!!!


The winner of this sale will have the opportunity to purchase the slightly smaller, forged from fire, dinged and dented beauty at 25% of the final selling price of this sale. If the winner does not want the additional item, then the same 25% offer for the black dirt ball will be extended to the second highest buyer and so on until someone will gives this bruised but not broken dirt ball a loving home.


only lets me upload so many pictures. I have more pics of the other ball with it's "fire scars," but I'll have to email them.


PS: a larger black ash ball is currently in the works, hopefully without the blemishes.
