The hours dedicated to a study of the subject before commencing on the fabrication of an artistic interpretation--well, somebody's convinced of his own talent.

Works of art, indeed.

I love the world again! This is precisely what should happen when you make a giant, inflatable dog turd - any other outcome would be hugely less entertaining.

Also: I, for one, welcome our new giant, inflatable dog turd overlords.

INcorrectly? Okay, clarification, please - is it your opinion that "Silly Love Songs" doesn't soar, or isn't a dog turd?

and don't get me started on "Let 'Em In" and "Live and Let Die"

I just want to confirm that yes, I knew it was a good day to be a reporter when I saw this story. I was particularly glad to get the phrase "artistic faecal rampage" out of my system.

This simply will not dodo. Es ist verboten! Es ist nicht ordung!

In Switzerland, plastic bags and bins are provided for the disposal of the doggy droppings. It is forbidden to leave it laying about. And honestly, the dogs are so well behaved (in a rather un-dog-like way) that I suspect they may pick up after themselves.

We need a link to site with coupons for giant inflatable dog turds.

Of course, the problem will be that the person at the checkout won't be able to identify it.

Sadly, the education of the youth of amerika is declining in more than one way. The other day I was at the grocery store and the checker was unable to identify a giant inflatable dog turd. And no, she wasn't new...and to make matters worse the checker next to her didn't know either.
