En garde: 2 battle with pooper scoopers in Seattle park
Seallt PI/KOMO ^ | 5/16/12 | Jill Blocker

A woman defended herself with a "pooper scooper" for nearly a half-an-hour while a man tried to hit her with another pooper scooper in Plymouth Pilliars Park early Thursday, according to the Seattle Police Department.

Police say the woman was with her dog at park, near Boren Avenue and Pike Street, around 2 a.m. when a man approached her complaining she was making too much noise, which he said was keeping his friend from sleeping.

He then picked up a pooper scooper and began swinging it at the woman, trying to hit her, according to police.

Police say the woman also picked up a pooper scooper to defend herself, fighting off the attacker for about 30 minutes before being able to leave the park.

Police searched the area, but were unable to find the attacker, according to the police department.

My take on things is that they’re about interchangeable for weirdness.

Right... tell you what, have this woman swing an unbrella (closed) around for 5 minutes and then have her just try to hold onto it for another 15. Then we will see if she could have wielded a "pooper scooper" for 120 minutes. At 2 in the morning. While defended herself from an attacker.

Oh no! We need a pooper scooper registration law, it's the only way we can be safe in our homes and parks.

Apparently pooper scoopers are plentiful and free for the taking in Seattle parks.

“En garde!”

“Prêts?”

“Allez!”

“Tiens, tiens!”

“Votre technique est inférieur!”

“Cela signifie peu à partir d’un déflecteur scumber comme vous!”

next would be CONCEALED pooper scoopers requiring gubmint
approved pooper scooper instuctors teaching proper use and handling.

Chuckie Schumer will author a bill against “Saturday Night Scoopers”. If it fails, the Brady Campaign will predict the sh@t wil hit the fan.

I dunno. Ever get a close look at the sorts of people who show up for Portland Timbers soccer matches?

No, but I got an up-close look at the denizens of downtown Seattle a few years ago. I’m thinking they can match up quite well against Portland.

This will be followed by a ‘pooper scooper buyback’ event held by the local animal control office.

Scoopers will be exchanged for biodegradable ‘doody’ bags.
