I'm having trouble trying to figure out what kind of political statement, whoever is doing this, is trying to make.

I doubt it's a complement, but seriously... WTF?
2005-01-18 11:25:01 AM  
That's kinda funny............. in a German sorta way
2005-01-18 11:30:42 AM  
"Don't leave me here with the Germans!"

Instead of on the graves of the men that came over to kick their ass?
2005-01-18 11:38:53 AM  
America has never been one to learn from Germany's mistakes.
2005-01-18 11:40:24 AM  
That's pretty funny.

And it is in line with Germany's long standing tradition of scatological humor.
2005-01-18 11:53:19 AM  
Germany and poo go together like peanut butter and jelly.
2005-01-18 12:00:21 PM  
What do you call a constipated German? .... Farfrompoopin
2005-01-18 12:11:29 PM  
What's with the Germans and poop anyway?

Here I was thinking I downloaded a perfectly good lesbian movie, then, they started crapping in each other's mouths.
Once my eyes were safely back in their sockets, I couldn't hit "delete" fast enough.

"Don't mention the war!"

Funniest thing I've read all day. Somehow I can't bring myself to finishing off this peanut butter and jelly sandwich now, though.

Berlin police on the look out for culprits sticking tiny US flags in piles of dog poo througout city parks

look out = verb
lookout = noun

set up = verb
setup/set-up = noun & modifier

cut off = verb
cutoff = noun & modifier

take out = verb
takeout = noun & modifier


It's not that difficult, people. Space between, and it's a verb. No space, and it's a noun or modifier.

And if some wise modmin cleans up the headline, and this doesn't make any sense, then good.

ElCorridor: Germany and poo go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Hilarious! and oh so sadly true.

"abortions for some, tiny little American flags with poop for others"
2005-01-18 01:52:34 PM  
All your dog poop are belong to us.
2005-01-18 02:01:43 PM  
Well, if the poo fits...
2005-01-18 02:54:57 PM  
In Cuba they would then light the flag on fire, ring the doorbell and run!!!
2005-01-18 03:29:43 PM  
That's hilarious, though I'm sure there'll be some belly-aching from the flag-sucker crowd.
2005-01-18 03:44:55 PM  
Those now belong to America, you biatches.

Oooooh say can you see,
By the dog's stinkin' poo;
What so proudly we hailed,
As the doberman's last big crap ...

Gosh...I remember Shoney's...
2005-01-18 04:13:24 PM  
Honestly, I don't get it. If the poop were on the flag, then the message would be clear. But since it's the other way around, with the flag on the poop, it's not quite as effective. Is it supposed to be insulting to dog poop to put a flag on it? If so, does this make it defication desecration?
2005-01-18 04:13:38 PM  
I love it, it is like a symbol to being the king of the hill, or crap as is the case.

For those who don't like it well just eat your freedom fries and freedom toast and ponder the significance.
2005-01-18 04:14:04 PM  
i'm an american, and i think this is hilarious.

now that the poo has been claimed, who do we see about getting it shipped back to it's rightful owner?
2005-01-18 04:14:10 PM  
Why are police on the lookout again? Is it a crime to put the paper flag of a foreign country in dog poop? Dont these cops have anything better to do?
2005-01-18 04:14:17 PM  
Oh ya Germany...real mature...
2005-01-18 04:14:21 PM  
Those now belong to America, you biatches.

I guess that means you can now lay claim to their more disgusting porn, too.
2005-01-18 04:14:37 PM  

""But frankly, we don't know what we would do if we caught them red-handed.""

I don't get it. German dog poop is red ?

2005-01-18 04:15:02 PM  
What is that bag Jodie Foster is carrying?

It is a bag of dog poop.

Get out of here, you crazy American.

/no really, it WAS a bag of dog poop.
//Stolen from David Sedaris

I <3 Berlin.
2005-01-18 04:16:05 PM  
I'm thinking that their statement is that the US is trying to claim everything and anything, and then it turns into shiat. Just a guess.


/turns off mania inducing caps lock key

Ha ha! That's funny.. hey wait, not it isn't.

insult or compliment, it's pretty damn funny.

/also found the defecation desecration phrase most amusing
2005-01-18 04:19:38 PM  
It is a sign that America needs to clean up her shiat. See, in Europe, we pick up after our dog craps, mostly. There's always a few lazy owners who just let it lay there. This is commentary on the fact that leaving your shiat for others to take care is the American Way.

What? You got a better hypothesis?
2005-01-18 04:19:55 PM  
"and there must be 2 000 to 3 000 piles of excrement that have been claimed during that time."

That's a lot of poop in one year... doesn't anyone clean up after their dogs over there?

[/amused by the story nonetheless]
[needs to get her totalfark back... hopefully this week]
2005-01-18 04:20:41 PM  
They should be looking for the people who aren't cleaning up after their dogs.
2005-01-18 04:20:45 PM  
Kompressor finds this to be satisfactory humor!

Well, if we can't be Kings of the Trailer Park, I guess the Lords of Poo will work just fine.

I like it.
2005-01-18 04:21:24 PM  
They don't even want to know what I plan on doing with the german flag...

(spelling nazi's [no pun but i'll take the credit] small "g" on purpose...)
2005-01-18 04:21:47 PM  
You think they are trying to say the US is the Shiat

Thought this thread was worthless.
2005-01-18 04:21:55 PM  
They should put an American Flag on every street in the old West Berlin considering they'd be speaking Russian if it wasnt for the determination of the US and its allies during the Cold War.... how soon they forget...
