Bird Droppings Theft Deterrent

Yuck, that's disgusting!
  [vote for,

Yesterday I saw an otherwise nice new car with fresh bird droppings across the window and roof. The impression was that a large passing bird had scored a bullseye with a double load of shit.

Idea: Large, removable, appliques in various patterns of slightly raised fake bird droppings molded in to be placed on windscreen, door, trunk lid, etc to create revulsion in the viewer to deter touching or ever getting close. Such decals can be kept in a folder in console or glove box until needed.

       Or just put a pair of gloves in that glove box and then go out and steal cars at will?

       Valuable stuff bird droppings, good fertiliser that, good idea to deter it's theft.   

       [Reads beyond title]   

       Oh, I see, not that then.   

       [Pauses to think]   

       [Faint smell of burning solder]   

       [Sound of grinding gears & a little smoke from the ears]   

       Why not just use real bird droppings, saves the expense producing plastic molds.   

       You only have to apply it once too.   

       Left on & baked in the sun it should corrode the paint work under it.   

       Which should be just as effective as the bird poop after it gets washed off by the next rain.

       Thinking further, the idea of applying (genuine or imitation) bird droppings to objects in order to deter theft is an idea with almost unlimitable potentiality.

       ^ Quite so. I stopped short of trying to replicate the entire bird, a seed-stuffed sewn torso with silken wings askew, recycled-plastic beak and life-like legs jutting out at odd angles, having led a proper bird life but now lying embarrassingly upside down across the hood in a slick of the aforementioned, er, poop.

Hmm, might actually be a greater deterrent.

       I once had an older car I should have taken better care of. Birds poo'd upon it and I ignored this. The poo ate through paint and primer and created rust.

       Precisely [Voice], you need only apply once ;D
