The Roomba of Doom

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.

Why cylindrical?
-- DenholmRicshaw, Nov 22 2011

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.
-- RayfordSteele, Nov 23 2011

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.
-- gnomethang, Nov 26 2011

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.
