Da-Glo turd glue

Spray gooey pet turds; turn them into "rocks"
  [vote for,

Wouldn't it be great to have a little can of stuff clipped to your belt, that you could use to mark a turd when you see it? At the very least it will assure that those who follow in your footsteps will not stray! A da-glo color would be best. Now for the real trick: imagine incorporating into the paint something akin to a cyanoacrylate adhesive that, when applied to even a really gooey one, would instantly render its consistency to that of a golf ball. That way cleanup could be achieved with a minimum of hassle; perhaps a nine iron would do, eh? --Update, Feb, '06: SWMBO just showed me a critter products catalog which included a spraycan of some stuff called "Poop-Freeze"! Doesn't have daglo paint, but... Link: www.poop-freeze.com

redundant with this one ... http://www.halfbake...minous_20Dog_20Shit
[po, Oct 17 2004]


       I don't consider this redundant with the idea [po] cites as this idea introduces, as its primary concept, the notion of chemically hardening the turd to reduce the unpleasantness. Provided that the cure isn't worse than the ill--that the hardener isn't ecologically nastier than the turd--I think that this might help prevent ground water contamination, too   

       Gets a + from me FWTW.

       So you want to glue turds to the pavement and make sure everyone notices?

       [bwv61] You mean "retch".

Nice - it should be some kind of glow-in-the-dark paint.

       @ 20 years ago, I got some mud, curled it up *just so* - inscribed *1933* on it, let it harden, spray-painted it gold & gave it to my Pop to give to next-town-over's Mayor at a Kiwana's meeting. The local Basketball and (American) Football rivalry continues, though it's apex was probably reached in 1933, after our town's gym was burned to a crisp after "we" defeated "them" for Valley Basketball Championship.

       A wretch is one who is wretched and a retch is what one who feels wretched sometimes does.

       If you recherche, you will find.

       In high school, my girlfriend put fish-hooks in cat exrement and spray-painted it gold. She hung the ornaments on the school Christmas Tree in a quiet social statement about seperation of church and state. Go, poo!

       eh? oh sorry!
po, Aug 14 2004

       The phrase, "as mean as catshit", was coined for a very good reason.   

       BTW, if you spray it with cyanoacrylate then Grissom and the guys will be able to identify who put it there, from their fingerprints.

       //little can of stuff//

And a little set of orange cones to mark it off. Separate pile into individual globs. Set the tarp in place, so paint won't drip on the sidewalk. Paint the top portion, and wait for it to dry. Turn with the special turd turning tongs, or as the case may be, the spatula. Paint bottom side and allow to dry. Inspect for gaps, and touch-up as necessary. Perform a step test. If the coating has completely hardened, sign it.
Proceed to the next one, to applause from the gathered crowd!

       Paris would be bright orange and shiny, within a week!

       Great Idea! The pooper scooper would be so colorful when filled with da-glo poo. Less stinky, too.

       Can't help but add a mention to the wonderful truism "You can't polish a turd". For the uninitiated this refers to any case where a modification is suggested to an intrincically low value item in order to present it as a high value item. For example putting make up on Christina Aguilera.

       I would think this is a great idea, however, I would like the "shell" to disintegrate within 30 yards of being hit with my pitching wedge. (always use a pitching wedge, even for teeing off...its the greatest...)
