From Assy To Ashy: AshPoopie Pet Waste Picker-Upper Burns Turds While You Wait

October 11, 2011


This is the "didn't give the name much thought" AshPoopie, a pet waste picker-upper that burns dog turds and turns them into ash. My God that must smell good.

The AshPoopie is the brainchild of scientist Oded Shoseyov from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is aiming to reduce the huge number of plastic bags full of poop that end up in the trash all over the world.

A built-in pooper scooper on the bottom picks up the offending material. It combines it with the contents of a replaceable cartridge and what looks like a set of rotating paddles. At this point, some patented incinerating magic happens and out comes sterile, odorless ash.

Hey, I'm all for less waste in landfills, I'm just NOT for carrying a shit-burning stick on dog walks. Besides, if I turn all my dog shit into ash, then what am I gonna set fire to and throw on old man Jenkin's doorstep? "I dunno -- your own waste?" *squatting over brown lunch bag* Haha, I'm already one step ahead of you.

Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who disposes of dog waste the old fashioned way: stomping it into a neighbor's grass until it's just a giant brown stain. LOLWUT?!
