    Probably how they pick up dog poo in Tanelorn...

    They laminate it to a stick so they don't have to use a baggy! Everything is better in Tanelorn!

    Be sure not to miss the interesting quote by a one "Garrick Hamm" who I have to assume doesn't do a lot of public speaking.

    I can safely say I would never have thought of this solution to cleaning up dog waste.

    It certainly beats the Pink Flamingo method... I would throw a link in there to a relevant explanatory image, but some of you may be squeamish! 8O

      Yes, best to leave those not already familiar with that imfamous John Waters film in the dark. I think this method is much more... er... divine.

        You've got me curious now... It's after 3 in the morning and I can't get my mind to make Google find me the answer. Is it something I'm going to regret finding when I finally got to sleep and wake up again?

            That's the one I think Dee was referring to. But I warn you be careful, it's a sensitive subject with other forum participants. Topics like that can, at times, bring out the worst in some.

              I have to say, having heard about the film long before I saw it, that I was a little disappointed to find that the scene in question isn't part of the film, as such. I mean it isn't a plot point, just a sort of grotesque epilogue, filmed on the spur of the moment. I'm not really very strong-of-stomach, so I'm not such a big fan of Waters's earlier work (preferring the later films, which his original fans consider a dilution) but throughout his career the man has demonstrated a talent for crafting great scenes, or great images. I don't think he's ever made a great film, but he knows how to bruise an audience's brain with his vision, and that's reason enough to appreciate the man.... plus he put L7 in a film, for which I'm also very grateful.

              None of which has anything to do with dog poop, except tangentially, so to return to the topic, I'd still be curious to know if the stereotype of Paris (absolutely littered with little "gifts" from canine behinds) has any truth to it.

                  Cheers for that Demos. I hadn't realised that I hadn't visited the forum for about a month :oops:

                    I used to find it a most piquant thing to stimulate folks' sense of juxtaposition and the grotesque by sticking a single flower into suitably textured dog poops. Dahlias were most amusing to me. Roses were going just too far, whilst orchids in such a position risk sentience and the creation of a thing that should not be.

                    Perhaps, thus was the Feral Art Movement born.

                    I should emphasise this was quite a long time ago, and not a regular activity - merely a spur-of-the-moment humourous indulgence.

                    Erm...
