Well, in this case, you're the pooper scooper, if not actually the hydrant.
Yes, it looks like the mayor's "Clean Up the Crap" ad campaign (see post: Clean Up the Crap from September) isn't working très bien. In fact, the city has recently put these nifty signs up in my neighborhood which read "I love my neighborhood, I scoop."
Yeah right, like these signs are going to make Parisians scoop up the poop?!
Oh wait, if you read closely, you'll see that dog owners are threatened with a 457 EURO fine (that's about $600). Maybe the city thinks the fine will scare everyone into poop scooping?
I calculated that the city of Paris could have made at least 2285 EUROS from the five dogs who pooped next to the lamp post in front of my building this morning between 8am and 8:40am. That's 57 euros/minute! Too bad the mayor of Paris doesn't have the smarts to send the Poop Police to my block. If you think about it, they could make at least 6855 EUROS per day if the Poop Police patrolled after breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Hey wait, I may be onto something here...this blog pays nothing! It would be much more financially beneficial to pretend to be a city employee (or the police) and fine these offenders myself!
Some days you're La Mom, some days you're the Poop Police!
