Police hunt poo protesters

Police hunt poo protesters

Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature US flags 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.

1. HAHAHA!
Apparently there's a movement here to plant little yellow flags with Bush's ugly face on them into piles of dog shit.

I guess we now know where they got the idea!

5. Now there's an idea whose time has come!
Where do I buy the flags with Our Leader's holy visage on them?

3. What possible law could this be violating?
Oh, well, it IS Germany, not our "free" country... I think the likeliest perpetrators of the poo-flag movement are AMERICANS IN GERMANY. Maybe even our own troops, or their families.

14. See -- I read it as a protest against people who leave their dog's poo
lying around. You wouldn't put the flag in your OWN dog's poo.

But that's my non-dog-owner, hate-stepping-in-dog-crap point of view.

19. Well, I think the dog-shit decorators are adding the flags to
dogshit they find on the sidewalk. But I still wonder what law they would be violating: Public nuisance, perhaps, does adding a picture of * turn everyday dog shit into something ugly and disgusting?

20. But that implies that the flag-sticker people are
the same ones whose dogs left the piles, and I don't think that's necessarily true.

Anyway, I still think it's a great statement of what America has become over the last 4 years. Now for the little flags with Bush's picture on them! I'd feel kind of bad sticking our flag in a pile of animal droppings, but I'd love to stick Bush's face in such a pile!

Hint: Buy some yellow paper for ye olde printer, some toothpicks, and follow your dog around. Great Danes work best. :evilgrin:

(On edit: Oops. I almost forgot the link to the Poo Gallery...)

17. Excellent point. But you need to make sure
that the PooPile (tm) is large enough to support the added weight -- or push the PooFlag (tm) down far enough to be supported by the underlying ground (I suppose a pencil sharpener would work okay to put a little point on the skewer).

I can't believe I'm sitting here meditating on the proper technique to use when planting a yellow flag of boosh** in a pile of dog shit. I used to be a semi-respected member of the data processing community! Really! I was!

24. Data processing is not respectable in any form.
You've made a wise career shift.

Now, when you purchase your skewers, you'll find there are those that are not much bigger 'round than toothpicks (but considerably longer) and will work perfectly.

Good luck...I expect big things from you.

10. Bush said he had "firmly planted the flag of liberty"
Maybe he's the culprit.

but I wouldn't want to be on that jury.

21. Anything's possible. Remember Pet Rocks?
See the link in my post (#8) for the site where you can download the .pdf file with the picture of Our Glorious Leader. The possibilities are endless. Someone could even make them into stickers and paste them on garbage cans, garbage bags, the bottom of toilets, urinal cakes (I'll let someone else take care of those two), and so on, and so on...

where the piles are.

31. AND the irony IS...
All those little flags were most likely
manufactured in....drumroll please....


CHINA!
BWAHAHAHAHA!

Gypsy curse to Freepers:
"May you get what you wish for."

Well looks like you "got it" freepers.
China is about to take global dominance economically
and other wise so that you can save ten cents on
a roll of toilet paper at Walmart.
LOL!
