Saw the subject line and immediately thought of the Jerry Clower story:

Mississippi boy scrounges enough money to go to big 4-H convention in NYC
Boy comes home with wads of cash
Pa threatens to whup boy if he doesn't tell him who he stole all that money
Boy tells Pa he didn't steal it, just took a pocket full of cockle-burrs
with him and sold them to yankee boys 10cents apiece as porcupine eggs.

Maybe you could sell cat hairballs as guinea pig eggs.
