Dog Poo Monkeys

Use monkeys to do a job that people don’t want
 
(+1, -1)
  [vote for,
against]

Train a monkey to collect dog poo in little plastic bags, and reward him with one banana for every piece of crap he retrieves.

Acquire a number of such monkeys, drive them around in a van that says “Monkey Dog Poo Team” on the side, and dispatch them where needed (dog park, soccer field, Paris, etc.)

Fees can be assed* on an hourly or per acre basis.

*or "assessed", your choice

       And who cleans up the monkey poo?
(Do you really call it "poo," [AO]? I have trouble believing that!)

       monkeys like throwing stuff, don't they?

       LOL... Uh oh!

       Monkeys LOVE to fling things ... Look at my good buddy po, for example

       They might go ape-shit.

       The monkeys are also trained to dispose of their own waste properly and not to throw anything. And no, [k], I don’t usually call it “poo,” but I wouldn’t anticipate doing much business if I had “Simian Shit Service” painted on the side of the van.

       ...well, you never know! : )
k_sra, Dec 19 2003
  

       ... you might always have a team of Simian Poo Robots cleaning up after them ...

       Bah... bloody slave helper monkeys thing again. Why does that keep cropping up here? I'm surprised more people haven't read "Rendezvous with Rama".

       I would happily overfeed my dogs with hot indian curries daily just to get to see these monkeys at work more often. Hee Hee!

       "Fees can be assed on an hourly or per acre basis."   

       But...I thought the team was being paid to take care of things that were assed in the first place?   

       Couldn't resist.

       Thanks, Eugene. Any typo that survives this long deserves to stay.
