Now you know how to say “poop” in Dutch! (You’re welcome.)

UPDATE: Bill came across this note in the Netherlands a few months back. “It may even be the same note writer!” Bedankt (thanks), Bill!

Bedankt (thanks)

    This isn’t a passive aggressive note – the person who stuck that cardboard in the dogshit was warning other pedestrians to prevent them from stepping in it.

      How many people are going to ignore the website’s banner? “funny (if not necessarily “passive-aggressive”) notes from pissed-off people”

      How many times can a man turn his head
      pretending he just doesn’t see?

    He could have used that cardboard to pick it up and put it in the trash. Derp.

    I know how to spell it, but I still don’t know how to “say” it.

      Pretty much the same as in english. The letter combination ‘oe’ in dutch is pronounced as ‘oo’ (but a short sound, don’t drag it).

    Maybe an outdoor art exhibition, with descriptive panel and confirmation that art is what some skeptics say it is?

    There is a joyful simplicity to POEP! It’s like a cry of delight.

    I don’t know why.

    I’m a poet for poep.

    Perhaps the signwriter is dyslexic and has a grudge against the Catholic Church.

    As someone who stepped in dog poop the other day (in a parking lot, right next to my car!), I appreciate the note writer’s sign.

    If you have a dog and you don’t pick up after it, you’re an asshole.

      There are certainly assholes involved.

    Lucky note-writer doesn’t live in France. There’s not enough cardboard to go around.

    If the sign-writer really wanted to get people’s attention, he should have written the sign using poep instead of a black marker.

    In the Netherlands, people leave dog poop all over! The sidewalks are constantly carpet-bombed and that’s bad enough, but I’ve seen dogs squat in the middle of an indoor mall, in restaurants, in the hallways of my apartment building. It is filthy. The second sign says “thanks”
