Police in Germany are hunting pranksters who have been sticking miniature flag portraits of George W. Bush into piles of dog poo in public parks.

"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," said Josef Oettl, parks administrator for Bayreuth.

The series of incidents was originally thought to be some sort of protest against the US-led invasion of Iraq. But then when it continued, it was thought to be a protest against 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 constitution is vague on the issue.


Personally, I think it is mighty considerate to provide unwary pedestrians with an obvious visual marker that prevents them from accidentally stepping into dog poo. I wish people were so considerate in NYC, where there is plenty of dog poo to step in.

Get your own flags, free, submit your Bush poo-flag photos, and browse the online Bush poo-flag gallery.

2. That's not only gross
it's also incredibly funny. :rofl:

Now you've published that it wouldn't surprise me in the least to hear it's being done in the USA too.

4. I've downloaded the PDF
I think I will spend the next few weekends being civic minded and flagging all of the dog crap I see, lest someone step in it by mistake. :patriot:

5. Too bad we have a local ordinance
that says you have to carry something with out to clean up after your dog

I don't see much poo around here. :(
