    I read this very quickly and thought for a moment it said something about “a different person’s urine in your personal collection.”

      I recall about 10 years ago there was an “artist” who sold cans of his own poop as some sort of artistic statement. Some of the world’s biggest galleries actually BOUGHT some, at a ridiculous price. A few years later, several of the cans exploded due to improper canning techniques! I hope someone made the curator clean it up.

        When I have need to pick up the dogs’ poop on a walk I like to announce, as I extend a plastic-bag-protected hand, “I’m taking THIS one for my collection!”

        It makes the dogs feel good, I think.

        (The specimen goes into the garbage. Just to be clear — I don’t have a poop collection.)

          How funny! I always try to deflect the impending ire of anyone who sees my dog pooping on “their” sidewalk by saying things like “Look how much he loves you! He’s leaving you a present!” or “YOU are tonight’s lucky winner!” before I clean it up.

          I am glad to hear you do not, in fact, have a poop collection, Bananabreadhead.

            Nice!! I’m sure those comments make your pooch, the giver of gifts, feel appreciated too!

    You cannot imagine the stock options I would insist on if I had to hold every cup…

    Brings new meaning to the term “cup holder”.
    Not just for automotive industry. Now HR job description.

    Make any sports innuendos to yourself, please.

    Hold on, hold on… My mental picture is not clear, but I am mightily convicted as I do not know if I want clarification for my normally crystal pictures. What? Wait! Don’t tell me?!?
