Danke, Deutschland, für die Idee!
I grew up in Texas, where everyone has the GAWD-given right (legal or not) to drive a block and a half to the 7 Eleven for a Slurpee.
Now that I live in downtown Baltimore, I've been known to walk 10 whole blocks to the Inner Harbor... if I can't find a taxi, that is.
Along the way, I always lament (rather loudly at times) dodging the many doggie poop landmines left behind by a multitude of morally-challenged pet owners.
I own 2 dogs. I have always owned dogs. I love dogs.
I also never leave the house without plastic sandwich bags stuffed in my pockets.
But now, thanks to some enterprising Germans, I will set out on my urban treks armed with more than mere plastic baggies!
German police baffled by Bush poo-flagsI like the Cristo (on a small smelly scale) aspect inherent in this German endeavor.

German police baffled by Bush poo-flags
Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature flag portraits of US President George W. Bush into piles of dog poo in public parks. Josef Oettl, parks administrator for Bayreuth, said: "This has been going on for about a year now, and there must be 2,000 to 3,000 piles of excrement that have been claimed during that time."
The series of incidents was originally thought to be some sort of protest against the US-led invasion of Iraq. And then when it continued it was thought to be a protest against President George W. Bush's campaign for re-election. But it is still going on and the police say they are completely baffled as to who is to blame. "We have sent out extra patrols to try to catch whoever is doing this in the act," said police spokesman Reiner Kuechler. "But frankly, we don't know what we would do if we caught them red handed." Legal experts say there is no law against using feces as a flag stand and the federal legal experts say there is no law against using feces as a flag stand and the federal constitution is vague on the issue.

You, too, can join in the fun!
Click Here (pdf file) and Print your "flags."
Chop some short kebob skewers in half and hot glue the "flags" to the skewers.
That's all there is to it!
I've long suspected that people who consistently ignore their pets' waste deposits are George W. Rapture-Ready Supporters (aka fascist fundie idiots), who couldn't give a pun-intended shit about your shoes.
And I know from personal observation that the usual suspects (aka fascist fundie idiots), sans fear of stealth Jihad attackers, tend to follow the same path when walking their pets.
Let's all get out there and put an appropriate face on those shitty landmines!
