Poop-Freeze

Poop-Freeze™ is a specially formulated aerosol freeze spray that, upon contact, forms a frosty film on dog poop (or cat poop) to harden the surface for easy pick-up.

And I betcha it cleans out your keyboard, too.

It's a floor wax AND a dessert topping!

Making one of nature's most biodegradable products into something that occupies landfill space much longer, all for the convenience of humans who dislike the texture of their own animal's waste products? This sounds like a fantastic idea! Even if it's just frozen water, the can itself and the aerosol can't be that great for the environment.

If you can't handle a little poop, don't own a dog. And don't have a kid. Speaking of which, I see a spinoff product opportunity. "Diaper-Freeze" (tm) is a specially formulated spray that, upon contact, forms a frosty film on your child's anus to eliminate the odor and wetness associated with those disgusting excretory functions! Wow! It's like having your very own automaton that looks just like you without any of the inconvenience of being responsible for a living thing!

Umm...wasn't this the major plot element of a Jack Black movie?

Feh. This shit doesn't make poo disappear.

Umm right. Until it thaws. About five minute later.

By THE WAY. This is the same thing they use to freeze warts off these days.

Or you could just shove a cork in your dog's butt and it won't shit for a really long time. And when it does, make sure it "accidentally" wanders over to your jerky neighbor's yard before letting loose!

Specially formulated? Or is it just more highly compressed so that it's colder when you spray it?
Somebody take some on a plane so we can find out.

All the freezing sprays I'm familiar with were made back in the late 70s, early 80s. Ozone depletion in a can.

Personally, I'm looking forward to the day when technology means I don't have to do anything. At all. Ever. Including owning, being aware of, and being able to spell technology.

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." How true of the great poop-freeze! How true!

No no no. Pepsi Poo.

It's ordinary freezer spray. You can get it at any electronics store. Freezing (or just frost-crusting) large/warm/numerous things with it will empty the expensive can pretty darn fast.

Of course, it's just a novelty rebadge product, like when people put cotton balls in a bag and label them "ghost poop".

Freezer spray actually is useful for various jobs, though. Some of them non-silly.

Well, it's better than my idea for dealing with dog poo:

An aerosol that boils it.

This is the same thing they use to freeze warts off these days.^

It's also probably the same as circuit chiller; used to test for heat failure in electronic components. Who labels these cans? They're making a mint.

It seems that Mad Magazine's Al JaffeeWiki had a similar idea back in 1978.

hmm. Should've read the thread closer, as YoBananaBoy beat me to it. Well, 'cept for the links.

I find it hard to believe that people would voluntarily forgo the pleasure of a warm steaming poo in a cold hand on a wintry day.

Huff it? I'm gonna cook it up and shoot it!

Zack_Replica: "It seems that Mad Magazine's Al JaffeeWiki had a similar idea back in 1978."

You sure that's a similar idea? Because it looks to me like a design for some weird ass dildo.

And the style choices of the guy that's using it reinforces my suspicions.

You mean a very weird dildo, or a dildo for inserting in the ass?

Actually, don't answer that. I don't think I want to know.

Pepsi Poo.

No, Poopsie Blue. Come on, the shit writes itself.

I can't help but snort-laugh whenever I see someone pick up dog crap. This will add to the humor.

This instant-freeze spray seems like something that Heston Blumenthal would just love to use in his cooking.

Hey, I'm only pointing out that the ideas are similar, and it's not my fault that Mr Jaffee is illustrating what could possibly be a multi-use err.. tool.

People picking up dog grumpies:
The only thing sadder than the Sandwich People, are the *Poo* People. You know, the Poo People: adults who sleep alone every night, but everyday you see 'em walkin' their three pound dogs. If it were a fish you'd throw it back! But they love it and they walk it. They walk it with little plastic bags on their hands. Waitin' for their little three-pounder to have his poo. And when he does, they pick it up. And feel that heat in their hand. As if to say: "I am *alive*!!" - Bruce McCulloch

While I do not have a dog and therefore have no use for its stated purpose, I do think that product has the potential to save me a fortune on Viagra.

For the ultimate in pooper-scooping, get yourself a Bagger 288. No sissy spray cans needed. Suitable for very large dogs.

flarbuse: Thanks. Please, that desperately needs to be illustrated. I think the last panel should show him accidently bumping it against something.

I'm thinking that a leaf-blower might work better.
