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 offers a chance to win gold bars to whoever hands in a bag of dog waste. Three gold ingots worth $2,100, $625, and $420 will be up on the offer when the 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 from criticism that Taichung received two years ago by offering a pittance of $4 shopping vouchers for its collectors. It such a hilarious world.
