France Experiences Riots Yet Dog Fouling Takes Prority

While France experiences rioting regarding political matters, which are beyond our remit, dog fouling has, once again, transcended chaos and disruption.

The council chief in Paris had already declared why the French capital had lost out to London for the 2012 Olympics. As reported in The Mail, Paris was the dog poo capital of the world.

Now, the Telegraph reports that sat navs are to be used to combat dog fouling in Toulouse.

Police and council staff will use hand-held computers to position and photograph the offending pile – then email the location to street cleaners. As an official puts it: "no one can now say we are not on top of the problem". Obviously, the people of France are fed up with literally being on top of the problem!

When the silicon chip was first produced, it was hailed as heralding a revolution in the way we live. Did anyone ever envisage that the resultant technology would be used to track dog poo? I think not!

It's All Go On The Scillies!

As I'm sure we're all aware, the Scilly Isles are no more than a hotbed of revolution and law breaking.

The situation is so bad that Radio Scilly has focused on the issue of dog fouling. Andy Thomas is leading the way in this battle against the greatest grumble on the island. In fact, he is heading up a public consultation.

He is an enforcement officer, I am, therefore, relieved to learn that he will not be using just any old witness statement! Obviously, only professional witnesses will be good enough to get offenders before the criminal courts.

The older among us might remember that one of our former Prime Ministers, Harold Wilson, Baron Wilson of Rievaulx, and his wife, Mary, were famous for holidaying in the Scillies. I cannot imagine that the Islanders would have allowed their dogs to spoil Harold and Mary's holiday.

My message is, therefore, clear. Unless the Islanders want David Cameron on their doorstep, they need to clean their act up!

Listen to Andy's words of advice below.

Shell it not shovel it.

Shell It hardens poo in seconds and breaks it up into "a neighbour friendly lawn fertiliser!!!"

I don't think I need to say anymore - where's my phone & credit card - $19.95 + $5.99 p+p is a small price to pay to stop my neighbour pushing a shovel full of dog faeces down my throat.

Yet more scary women.

I love it when people lose it over dog fouling and take the law into their own hands - remember the naked pooper scooper, ASBO woman, the dog fouling rant & the woman who took to throwing dog poop at her customer ?

Apart from the fact that they all had "a thing about dog shit" - they were also all women. Not sure if women have a lower threshold when it comes to dog fouling, but here's yet another story about a scary woman who just couldn't take it anymore ...

Chicago Sun-Times gives us this story:

Susan Miller was so frustrated by her neighbor not cleaning up her dog’s poop that she went ballistic after stepping into one pile too many and decided to launch her offensive at her neighbour’s sliding patio screen. In addition to hurling the offending shit, she also strung up several plastic bags of dog poop around the neighbour’s patio and front door. As a finishing flourish, she took a sign from the apartment complex requesting that residents clean up after their dog and stuck it in her neighbours garden.

Susan Miller
Naperville police officers were called about 8:18 pm to Miller's home on the 800 block of Beaumont Drive, in the Brittany Springs apartment complex. The 43-year-old Miller was apparently "fed up with dog faeces" being left on the grounds of the complex, and stated to officers she had, "decided to wipe the dog faeces which she stepped in on the porch of the dog owner."

Miller was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

Most of us would have just shut up and tried to forget the incident, but not our Susan - she went on to release a YouTube video to defend her actions!

I love scary women! :-)

Football Sponsorship.

"The dog population in Tameside is estimated at 30,000, producing around 12 tonnes of excrement a day!"

It was facts such as this that fired the Dog Fouling & Red Rubber Bands blogger staff into action - we had to do something to help the people of Tameside.

After some negotiation we eventually secured a 2 year deal to sponsor the football strips for the local under 16 Sunday League football team - Tameside Tiddlers. I think you will agree that we get our message across very well.

The only problem is - the team have to run around the pitch as one unit or the letters on their backs don't make sense! :-)

Dog Fouling - Most Written About to MPs, Yet The Killer Of Political Careers!

You will all remember Danny Kushlick, our hero, who didn't quite win a seat at Bristol at the last election, missing by several thousand votes.

This was bad enough but my research suggests that the topic of dog fouling has ended the political ambitions of SNP member John Mason. John was a rising star of the party. In July 2008, he won a by-election for the SNP in Glasgow East. A former Labour stronghold, John took it for the SNP for the first time ever.

No doubt viewed as a future high flying politician, John made a fatal mistake. He sought to take the issue of dog fouling to the next level. Consequently, he lost by nearly 12,000 votes.

What is it about dog fouling? We all hate it, we all want to see it eliminated, yet the mention of it destroys political careers. See John's big mistake below. Personally, I congratulate him on the excellent way he presents the need to combat this issue. Why ever did the electorate reject him?

Drop Dead Fred

Drop Dead Fred was a crazy comedy film from 1991 that starred Rik Mayall & Phoebe Cates. Rik played Drop Dead Fred - an imaginary friend of young Phoebe. He returns to her life when she is much older and causes havok in her life.

The only reason I mention this film is that Drop Dead Fred seems to have an affinity with "dog poo". In one famous scene he covers his shoes in dog faeces from the garden, walks into the house on his hands and then proceeds to clean his feet on the beige living room carpet and chairs.

Something we all yern to do some time in our life :-)
