    I knew there was something missing in my life until I discovered the Strap-on Arse Basket.

    Dogs poop. If you don't like dealing with it, don't get a dog. Jesus Christ, people.

    "EXPOOLIARMUS!"


    I literally had sparkling water squirt out of my nose at this from laughing. Actually kind of painful and unpleasant. 0.0

    Let's hope you learned your lesson and will from now on invest in some water with sparkles removed. It sounds like needless luxury at first but you'll be amazed, it'll change your life.

    Just don't be tricked into getting one of those user-end sparkle removers to save money in the long run, they're made of awful. That stuff really can't work below industry grade. Besides, who's going to buy your leftover sparkles? Nobody, that's who, you'll end up just throwing it away, and that's bad for the nature.

    No hassle = strapping a bag to your dog's ass every time before you walk it.

    OKAY, SOUNDS GOOD.
  • Redrally
    Would the dogs really like this? Would they even stand still long enough for one to be strapped on? I know puppies won't.

    My thoughts exactly. Pretty sure they wouldn't appreciate it...

    I agree with Trepie. I'm not sure someone living in an area with no dog parks or wilderness or such should even get a dog.

    Thankfully, I can say this product has not reached us in Finland yet! 8D Maybe because nobody notices dog shit, what with all the bears and wolves littering the streets.
  • Semysane
    I really wish people would pick up after their bears more.

    It's also quite magical when another dog starts sniffing around your dog's bum and get slapped in the snout with an exploding bag of poo.

    When I was in high school, I used to walk my neighbours dog for money sometimes, and that fussy little monster made putting a leash on difficult. I can't imagine how long it would have taken me to strap a bag to its butt as well!

    Whoever came up with this must be really proud of their contribution to the world. A bag into which dogs shit. Genius!
  • blackmaniac
    I found a review of this thing online. Mike was right, there is a good chance of the dog shitting past the bag. The video also included a passerby beeing perplexed by the dog having a plastic bag stuck to his anus.
    And here comes the hassle free part of it all: It sticks to the bum using magnets. So in order to "install" a new bag, you have to fickle with the bag beeing caught between the magnets.

    The point is: this is a crappy product

    As someone who volunteers at a shelter, I can safely say this is not a problem that needed a solution. Just use a bag as a glove and wash your hands. If you can't carry a bag you don't have the strength to walk a dog.

    If you are that disgusted by a dog's business then you should not own one. You probably shouldn't own any pet in fact as you'll have to deal with this one way or another no matter what you have.

    Cats' litter boxes, Birds' cages, rodents' cages, fish bowls, what have you, everything poops.

    The only possible reason I could ever see me purchasing one of these was if I decided to dog-sit for a friend/neighbor AND it was cold enough outside that leaving the dog in the yard wasn't an option AND it was a dog well known for being bad about going poo indoors (and only poo, because if it wasn't housebroken at all there's no way I'd be dog-sitting it). But other than that, I can't really see myself not bursting into hysterical fits of laughter at the idea of actually buying one.
  • ladydiskette

    In addition, my reasoning would be that it would only be useful if your dog was sick and you needed a quick and easy way to obtain fecal samples to the vet but your dog had diahherea.


    This is probably the only infommercial that made me gag outloud just thinking about it.

    I couldn't even see it then.

    I knew a guy though who had a dog so old he couldn't control his bowels anymore and every single step that dog took there'd be soft poop everywhere. I could see something akin to this - but better designed - for a dog like that.

    However, this is actually an idea I saw once in an old Mad Magazine comic on how to deal with dog poop. It also included one where a guy had a broom on one shoe and a pooper scooper on the other.

    You pretty quoted one of my favorite MadTV characters, the Mexican Wrestler Senor Bag of Crap:

    "I...AM A MAN...WITH A BAG...OF CRAP!!!"

    I just let my dog go in the middle of the road near my house. If the damn Amish buggies don't have to clean up horse shit then why should I have to clean up dog shit?

    So it's a condom you strap onto your dog's anus. Fantastic.

    You HAVE to review the NutriBullet nutrition extractor. The testimonials do all but claim the thing heals cancer. Do it!!! :)

    So..wait.
    This bag attaches to the dog's bum with magnets? Does that mean the magnets are part of the bag and you need to buy specialty dog-poo bags to use with this thing?

    I can also see the dog poo being too heavy for the magnets on larger dogs, causing the bag to fall off. Or the dog'll just knock the thing off with its tail, or drag its butt on the ground to get it off..

    Well, they do have poop bags for horses. Which is entirely reasonable - 1) horses stay still 2) horses travel on roads 3) horse poo, well when they poop they POOP a ton. 4) Its a hassle to have a cart following behind you to shovel all that up.

    This is just silly, just image all the looks your neighbors and the people in parks will give you...

    I have tears in my eyes from laughing at this thing.
  • ChaosChaser  - Uh, Have These "Inventors" Never Heard of a Diaper
    "Easy to install on your dog?"

    Adapting a baby diaper to a dog is probably quicker, easier, and catches more poo (and wee). Since that's what a diaper does. If you *really* want or need the perfect fit, doggie diapers exist.

    "There are no substitutes!"

    Only if all the diapers in the world caught fire. Then we would strapping Poo Traps to babies and the incontinent as well.

    The Bun-Bag for miniature ponies and the like looks very familiar, doesn't it?

    I remember nearly dying of laughter the first time I saw this infomercial on TV
  • PlasticLion  - It needs a celebrity endorsement
    I hear that Richard Gere got one for his gerbil.

    But the damn thing clawed through the bag on it's way out.
