    I am eating right now. When I read the thread title, I threw up a little bit in my mouth cause I have 2 dogs and I know how smelly dog poop can be.

    Oh god! [clutches mouth]

    I found about it in my boingboing.net RSS feed. ^_^

    I would bet that this is going to be marketted, at least in China. These kids could be making a lot of money.

    Lacero, laminate it and it won't smell as bad :D

    How do you spray the bottom of the "pile?" How environmentally friendly is the spray coating?

    A nice, creative idea, but maybe not so practical to implement.

    OTOH, I can see a lot of "paperweights" being given as gifts next year for Christmas. :eek:

    I guess you do the top first, lift the stick, then do the bottom.

    Not sure but I think they will use something safe:

    Can't argue here ^_^

    A doodoo-on-a-stick paperweight? O_O

    :D

    Reminds me of that movie "Envy" with Jack Black and Ben Stiller:

    Plot:
    (probably one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen)

    According to the picture, it's just liquid nitrogen, which is pretty environmentally friendly seeing as how nitrogen makes up 78% of the Earth's atmosphere.

    However, this also means that the poop isn't being "laminated" - it's being frozen. Poop popsicles, anyone? :p

    **** on a stick, what will the kiddies think up next. :eek:

    Though it is amazing the expense and lengths people will go through to avoid walking the dog and picking up the gifts left behind.

    It's still a better idea than this "Brown Jelly Beans" dispenser ^_^:

    Oinking good fun? Oh well.

    Must be easier to stockpile containers of liquid nitrogen in China... :rolleyes:

    From a dog owner's standpoint, this seems pretty ridiculous. Now, instead of carrying around just baggies, I need to carry around sticks, a liquid nitrogen dispenser, and baggies.

    Maybe I'll just carry around a jar of shellac instead. I like a nice high-gloss finish on my dog poop.

    Although the liquid nitrogen may work better on poop that isn't as, shall we say, well-formed... :eek:

    I'm sorry to hear that it caused you discomfort. Being a nurse this is no problem at all. Just a every day occurrence. I also pickup after our dogs at home. After drying the smell is almost gone.

    Thanks. Like I needed that mental picture. ;)

    My goodness, just think what kind of trouble the kiddies could get up to with cans of liquid nitrogen lying around the house...

    Nitrogen is lighter than butane and you need a very strong container to keep it under pressure (something like an oxygen container).

    That's not laminating at all... but I have laminated a few things that shouldn't have been in my days at Kinko's. You'd be amazed at how long a booger can get when heated and pressed through the rollers of a laminating machine...
    :eek:
