  1. I think it's stupid. Dogs poop outside. Get used to it...watch where you're walking. The idea was 'curb your dog' on the gutter side of the side walk. Or let them poop in bushes away from pathways.

    The concept that we have to put dog poop in a non-biogradable bag and carry it around with you is stupid.

    You share the environment with animals like dogs that Poop.
    30 years ago the idea people would be wearing plastic gloves and putting dog Poop in plastic bags would be outstandingly insane to most people.

  2. Celebrity gossip? What does TMZ mean in this context (my pop culture trivia is not strong enough for this one)?

    @SamWinston - I think it has a lot to do with population density - sure, in a rural setting and/or most suburban settings you're not even going to notice the random turd - but if you have X number of people living in a city block and X% have dogs, pretty soon it's going to be hard to walk without stepping in shit.

    And, fine, I'm no fan of pigeon shit either (I once had a spooked pigeon shoot an egg at me) and it can be pretty nasty where they congregate, but they are living with the vagaries of nature - your little shitter is living large off Alpo.

  3. Yeah, my daughter attends a school where a sizable percentage of parents walk their kids to school and bring the family dog along with them. The dogs aren't actually allowed on the campus itself, so they get tied to trees and the fence just outside the school. And so the sidewalk in front of the school would be a minefield of turds, if people didn't pick them up (and many of them don't).

  4. If you let your dog shit in public and don't pick it up, i think you should be required by law to wear the shit as a mustache for at least 24 hours. That's for first offenses.
