New Taipei City is going all the way to get their city speckles and poo-less. In a drive to urge residents to clean their pet dogs, the city is offering a chance to win gold bars to who ever hands in a bag of dog waste. Three gold ingots worth $2,100, $625 and $420 will be up on offer when resident deposits the bag and gets tickets for a lucky draw. This program begins on August 1 and winners will be announced on October 1. Collectors will also be given a bag to collect the waste. Rewards will also be given to those who take photographs of dog owners messing a spot. The city is rolling up its sleeves to see some positive response as compared to criticism that Taichung received two years ago by offer a pittance of $4 shopping vouchers for its collectors. Such a hilarious world.
