Dog Years

“Hello from the gutters of Rockingham, (New York City) , which are filled with dog manure, vomit, stale wine, urine and blood.”

(David Berkowitz, Son of Sam killer.)

Great find from Caff who says, “Dog owners may be so good at keeping Rockingham free from dog turds, the council needs to remind us what they look like…”

I’m more worried about the dog’s posture. At the risk of using the word twice in the last week, doesn’t the canine seem to be taking a rather insouciant attitude to parking last night’s Chum? And there seems to be a problem with the perspective. Can it also deposit turds into the middle distance?

    When I lived in Manhattan there was a sign, during the Ed Koch administration, that was both the best and the worst. It said..complete with caps:

    Don’t Even THINK of Parking Here

    So New York! I should have photographed it. They disappeared quickly. I think some tourists’ feelings were hurt.


  3. New Gravatar Skink?

    I have often observed that a dog that deposits turds into the middle distance is usually accompanied by an owner gazing into the middle distance (opposite direction) in an effort to convince anyone watching that the dog and turd have absolutely nothing to do with them and therefore they cannot possibly be expected to clean up afterward.

    And it’s worse when one is pushing his wheelchair and gets dog turd on the wheels and hands.

    Well Frank, there was a bitterness in my tone ‘cos I had just spent 20 minutes at the park cleaning dog crap out of the tread in my sneakers with a stick – but yours is way worse.

    not sure what’s happening with the gravator thing – seems temperamental. I change it on the website and it takes maybe a week to change on the blogs, or maybe I don’t see what others do.

    I changed it to macho moustache man a week ago, but it doesn’t seem to have filtered through

    enough about me.

    how about cats that look like Hitler:


  8. I saw the pussycat dude today on another machine, but on mine it is the lizard. It does take a few days for the cache to be renewed.

    there is a similar sign at South Beach in Fremantle (complete with bad perspective) but without the underlined PLEASE. I guess they are more polite in Rocko


  10. Rage says:

    I quite prefer it to the crouching dog you see around the traps. It is somehow less graphic.


  11. Bento says:

    Actual depiction of turd coming out of the dog’s arse, flying through the air into the middle distance, and forming a space-invader-turret-like-mound is less graphic?

    About the only thing I can think of that would be more graphic is if the sign featured an action photo of my neighbour’s sneaky little yapping precious shitting on my verge.


  12. Caff says:

    I think the poos look like skydivers jumping out of an aeroplane.
    Perhaps the bottom one’s parachute is open?

    Actually you might find the animal is simply trying to move its bowels in a stiff sea breeze.


  14. Don’t tug on Superman’s cape. Don’t crap into the wind…


  15. Bargearse says:

    Trying to stop shit in Rockingham is like trying to dry out the Indian Ocean.


  16. You could have worked King Cnut into that Bargy.

    Rarer than rocking(ham) horse(dog) shit ?
