WTF Wednesday: Just pick up your damn dog poop like a normal person

20 Aug

Because using a plastic bag is too much work, we have found yet another poop removal product that panders to the…useless.    Like the Poop Freeze , The Poop Trap,  and the AuggieDog Pop Vacuum before it, the Ash PooPie (really, must that second P be capitalized) promises to revolutionize the way you pick up animal waste  .Yay?


It’s like a magic wand for turds. BIPPITY-BOPPITY-POO!


This product reminds us of wart Freeze Off in the most disturbing of ways. Press this device in to the blemish on your yard (or face) and just like that…gone. We do have to wonder about the smell though. Can you smell the burning poo? What do you do with the little pile of shit ash that is left behind…. leave it there? Do you carry it around on walks and leave the little piles of ash on other people’s lawn?  We have questions, and this video answers none of them. It does, however, answer the one question we didn’t ask. Can it be used on human waste? The answer is yes… but we don’t want it to be.

    I actually k((ind of like the idea for my back yard. With 4 dogs and a bad back, it would save me hauling pounds of poo to the dumpster…(Don’t hit me! Don’t hit me!)

      The SASI pooper scooper is the best. Uses plastic grocery bags and has a long handle. Would be great for a bad back and a yard full of poop. 😜

        Wow – that company needs a new writer. First, I was amused by “I have seen some irate campers go at each other and it can escalate fast”. Then angered by “Going out in the woods is a lot of fun and you don’t have to worry about picking up dog poop as long as it is away from the other campers”. GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!

      It actually sounds kind of environmentally friendly to me. “turns it to ash.” Ash doesn’t fill dumpsters.

    The best part is the accent of the speaker. I always associate turning poop into ash with a British voice over, don’t you?

    That is probably much better for the environment than disposing of hundreds of lbs of dog poo a year in plastic bags.

    … and what about the nasty chemicals involved in incinerating the poop? How many people (or animals) could be injured by a malfunction? What happens if a child (or intoxicated adult) get hold of the device and uses it improperly? Also what are the environmental costs of making those “special capsules” that probably have to be specially disposed of as hazardous chemicals? Green-washing at its’ finest! (I say that as someone who would genuinely welcome a more environmentally friendly alternative. This certainly isn’t it, though it’s a dandy way to part well meaning people from their money.)
