In Southern Germany in a town by the name of Bayreuth, the German police are in a quandary. The town’s dog poo is under attack. Park officials are desperate to resolve what could become an international incident. Unknown person or persons have been sticking little US flags into piles of doggie poo for over a year now.
the dog poo brigade has managed to target between 2,000 to 3,000 abandoned piles
of excrement in Bayreuth public parks. Quite who actually counted them all and
provided these statistics is debatable but the source is rumoured as coming from
the Parks Administrator – Josef Oettl. And you wondered what your parkie did
thought to have started as a protest against the Iraqi war has continued through
the US election campaign and is still a regular occurrence today. Have the
German’s not heard of poop a scoop? Surely all self respecting German citizens
collect their doggie poo. Poop in the parks and pavements was surely just a
are now stepping up patrols in order to catch these offenders. However, the poo
could hit the fan if they ever tried to bring them to court. It is unclear what
they would actually charge them with as there is no law against using doggie poo
in this way. In fact, you could fly any flag from any piece of turd you find
lying around. It’s not illegal but it cannot be a pleasant task. Surely this
wouldn’t catch on over here in the UK – would it?
