Now you can turn your dog's dirty doings into free stuff!

If this appeared on Dragon’s Den, it would probably get laughed straight back down the stairs. But as it’s a New York-based innovation, it appears to be being taken seriously. It’s Poopons – the app-based scheme that will allow you to make savings as a result of your collection of dog turds. Hooray!

It works like this – you get your hands on one of the special Poopon crap-collection bags that are located in dog-walking spots of the city. Then, once you’ve deposited your, erm, dog’s fresh deposit into the bag, the warmth of the poo will make a barcode appear on your bag. Scan the code into your smartphone and you’ll get some points, points that can be translated into money-off coupons. How utterly delightful. Here – learn more.

Don’t worry Bitterwalleteers – it’s just a parody, a silly old load of made-up pretendy. Although, to be honest, we’ve seen much in real life…

    If the warmth reveals it, can i not grab a crapload of these bags and warm these with my hands. Or crap in em myself.

    Remember when you were kids (if you're old enough) and you'd take the bottle back to get the deposit, it's kinda like that, except with faecal matter.

What do you think?
