WTF Wednesday

29 May

Once again, the dog industry has made another contraption that actually adds steps to cleaning up dog poop.   Seriously people, if you don’t want to clean up poop, don’t get a dog.  This is quickly becoming our WTF Wednesday mantra. Seriously guys, even Barbie is doing it.

We present to you… the poop vacuum. That’s right… a vacuum for fecal matter. So, instead of a simple bag that you can toss in the trash you now have a device that has to be scrubbed (we assume? surely you don’t just leave it filthy?) We’d go on… but the website really covers any further mocking we could do. Go ahead, go look. 

Want to see it in action?  Check out this hard-hitting news segment here

Also, check out minion Sara snobbing away at the 1:13 mark.  And her hand is less expensive?  That’s what she said….

    Yeah, I totally need another thing to carry when I walk my dog. As a general rule, if I can’t clip it to the leash with a carabiner and it doesn’t fit in a bait bag, and it’s not an actual dog, it doesn’t go with me for dog walks.

    So…you’re supposed to carry that with you on a walk?

    I doubt that anyone who would buy this actually walks their dog.

      You are correct. It will be purchased by people who don’t have dogs as a gift for people who do have them, and the dog owners will politely pretend to be grateful and then try to get rid of it in a garage sale.

    Looks to me like Barbie recycles the poop back into the dog bowl – a closed system – very efficient, Barbie!

    Um screw that useless product, where is that HUGE and insanely awesome expansive dog run?!?! Clearly, no where near NYC….I need to move.

    “Handle Beeper for Dog Trainers”
    because any self-respecting dog trainer would be seen with one.

    I thought the best bit was the guy getting bitten too…. even the dog knows its a stupid contraption…wait concraption…. :p

    Yeah, like my Doberman shits little fondant covered petit-fours with cute little icing bows. Somehow, I suspect the only poop that thing picks up are the goodies left by a teacup breed. And then there’s the environmentally friendly part. Is it REALLY okay to drop feces straight into someone’s dumpster?

    I’m with the folks who asked why anyone would carry that ‘concraption’ around. Though I did have one wicked thought…. How fast does the thing expel poop? Does it shoot it out like a super squirter or what? Cuz I could think of a few really fun uses for something like that!

    I’m with Vicki… the REVERSE function could make that an interesting addition to a prankster’s arsenal. Why leave a yucky flaming bag when you can simply LOAD, AIM, and REVERSE your AuggieDog-TM.

    Lovin’ that idea…seeing as I have such craptastic neighbors and have long fantasized about launching a few spuds at their pool..

    That one’s pretty much left me speechless!

    Frankly I zeroed in on her shoes! Who walks a dog in 3 inch platform shoes? I, too, have Dobermans and can picture me trying to stride down the boulevard in my capri pants and 3 inch heels for about 2 steps before breaking an ankle. Of course my handy poop vacuum item will now double as a crutch as a hobble to the nearest ER.

    Yup, well in my neighborhood those dog owners who can’t be bothered picking up after their own dog can use “Doody Master”, a service that comes to your house and cleans up your dog’s poop in your own yard. Motto? “We do poo, so you don’t have to” Cant make this stuff up!! Seriously.
