Here’s a screen capture:
From NJ.com: “Councilman Christopher Campos, who suggested the idea”..
Let’s have fun with Campos’ “idea”… A little satire and a PSA at the same time!
In front of Good Kleen Fun, these two ladies and their furry rats were walking and the second mutt waddles along and emits a mushy cigar-like object right in front of a parking meter. She kept walking! I ask her, “Hey, aren’t you going to pick that up?” She stops. Looks at me for a few seconds, and keeps walking. Well she must have either been foreign or retarded, or both, because it didn’t register. The owner Andrea had to come out and clean it up. Disgusting and rude! I wasn’t in the Geraldo Rivera harassing mood, so I let them go. This time.
This whole idea of “outing” people who fail to pick up after their dogs seems like an interesting process (read: Reader Mail: Dog droppings). However, I’m wondering how you’d all feel about looking at piles of dog crap on your computer monitor. Not the most pleasant thing in the world, right? But I guess it’s better than stepping in it. So I’ve decided to “minimize” the visual and use it as an inset instead.
Here’s our first lucky charter member to the Poop Offender Zone!
