Decipher This Poopy Sign! [Updated]
UPDATE: Everyone seems to agree that this sign was put up by a frustrated property owner whose lawn is being inundated with pooping dogs. I should have noted in the OP that the property is actually surrounded by a high chain link fence, that not only wraps around the entire property (including driveway), goes all the way to the street. So if there are any dogs pooping on the guys lawn, he owns them.
So, one of the things I’m trying in my ever-futile but on-going quest to be a middle-aged, balding hottie is walking at least five miles on weekdays while I’m working — essentially, getting up every couple of hours and walking a mile or two throughout the day.
This past week I came upon the above sign.
The sign as about 4 foot by 3 foot. It sits in the front yard of a home about a mile away from my house, on a street that is almost entirely blocked off to outside traffic. I have never seen the people who live there. But now everyday when I pass it, I wonder at what it might mean. If the picture isn’t so clear on your screen, here is the transcription:
BUY A POOP TRAP
I CALL TO POLICE
Act like you have some
I love this sign so much. Partially for its odd plural use of “poops,” partially for having some form of the word “poop” multiple times, and partially because following up a note to your neighbors that “I call to police” with a hectoring slight about people needing to be better educated makes me smile each time I see it.
But what in Dog’s name does it mean?
Please put your best guess as to what this sign is trying to communicate, and well as your story for why the owners wanted it to be said so badly that they went to the trouble to have it professionally printed and laminated.
I will declare a winner by the weekend, and he or she will have poopy bragging rights for some time to come.
To your keyboards!
