|In Southern Germany in a town by the name of Bayreuth, the German police are in a quandary. The townís 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. |
Surprisingly 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 Ė Josef Oettl. And you wondered what your parkie did each day?
What was 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 Germanís 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 British thing?
German police 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. Itís not illegal but it cannot be a pleasant task.
Surely this wouldnít catch on over here in the UK Ė would it?
