"Hey, we were gonna retain that!"
I don't mean to be too much of a killjoy about this, but this dog-poop-stealing prank from Internet rascals Greg Benson and Jack Vale isn't quite so harmless as they're making it out to be. Sure, most people just throw their dog's waste in the trash after bagging it. But what if they weren't going to?
For example, what if their dog had a gastroenterological issue that required immediate medical attention, and they needed that stool sample for the vet? Or, what if that dog had just twelve-hours-earlier swallowed a priceless wedding ring that had belonged to the owner's deceased grandmother, and the owner was planning on carefully retrieving the priceless family heirloom from his pet's waste? Or, what if that dog was patient zero for a rare and deadly disease with the potential of infecting the whole of mammalian life on this planet if its excretions were not immediately transferred to a hazmat receptacle? Huh? How about that?!
Now, I'm not saying that any of those scenarios are likely. But they're possible. And these guys are willing to risk the destruction of life as we know it just for a few Internet clicks? Pathetic!
