Dog Doo MBA

A small cylindrical robot that roams the streets sniffing for the characteristic scent of dog poo.

When it finds a fresh pile, a little arm plants a miniature Union flag in the centre.

       Hah!

       Why cylindrical?

       Could use a different flag outside of the UK. Installing a small inkjet printer, and a low-resolution GPS, could allow the unit to be loaded with blank flags.

       I thought it was going to plant an MBA grad certificate in it.

       A warm, steaming bun, just for you. [+] (...if a robot comes along and sticks a flag in it I am definitely changing my recipe...)

       You mean it isn't already?

       Would be much more useful than some degrees.
RayfordSteele, Nov 22 2011
  

       I have no degrees, and yet am somehow useful. How did this happen?

       //I have no degrees// Pfui! You have six degrees of separation, don't you?

       Only from you.

       Heard today on NPR, that thanks to Facebook, that average number has decreased to 4.7.

       Who has all the .7s?
pocmloc, Nov 25 2011
  

       In that case isn't the original 6 suspiciously precise?

       // a miniature Union flag in the centre. //   

       Would not a french tricoleur be infinitely more appropriate ?

       I always thought that the only thing that ought to be stuck in a fresh dog turd was a lolly stick.

       I once saw a smoke-emitting tractor-like vehicle called "FIDO", which stood for something something "dog ordure", and was very excited at the idea of a vehicle powered by incineration of dog turds, but was later disillusioned to discover that it simply had a conventional diesel engine and was designed to clean up poo. This is one of the great sadnesses of my life.
