This Shit Has Gots’ta Stop!
Click to enlarge, save and print your own Anti-Dog Poop Flag.

With Spring comes warm weather, baseball, birds chattering about God-knows-what in the newly-leafed trees, the return of your creepy neighborhood ice cream man, and yes, dog poop.

Piles and piles of dog poop.

After the snowpack melts in Chicagoland, it’s a common sight to see cryogenically preserved dog poop emerge from the snow, as well as fast food detritus, soiled rubbers, my stolen mail and the other assorted debris of city life.

And, after winter has passed, with the warmer weather and the sidewalks now bare for all to see, it’s also common to see piles of steaming fresh dogshit littering the sidewalks of our fair city. While I love dogs, I hate dog owners that simply leave their dog waste in the streets and sidewalks to sully my blindingly-white Adidas. And the flies. My God, THE FLIES!

Join me in my crusade to stop dog shit!

Click to enlarge the image above, and then right-click and “save as,” print out your own anti-dog shit flag, affix a toothpick, straw or skewer and plant them in the next offending pile of shit you see on the sidewalk. Then, snap a photo with your camera or your digi and send it to me- the best photos will be immortalized here on the blog, and you will become a fully deputized member of nikkos’ anti dog shit brigade.

I give Daley’s lawyers, oh, about 20 minutes before I get a “cease and desist” letter.

Many thanks to my good friend Erin for whipping up the flag design for me. Thanks for humoring me Erin!

    i love city life. what we need now though is a sign solely for those humans who can’t pick up their own shit off the ground.

    I had forgotten about that unpleasant side affect of spring. Add the rains and it makes for very unplesant runs (no pun intended) in the park.
