Daily Weird #18 Dackle Kackle (I shoveled the most dog poop, I win!)

Why is the dog poo neon yellow?

Some call it Cackle Dackle, some call it Takkie Kakkie, I just call it a $45 toy dog that poops on your table.

Remember when Fisher price came out with the people you could put in the barber chair? You would push Playdough up the bum of the hollow person, sit the bald guy or gal in the chair, and turn the crank until the Playdough came out their holey heads. “A shave and a hair cut, bump bump!” Well, German designers have taken this concept and added a little twist.

Instead of pushing the Playdough up the bum, you now shove it in the mouth of a cute little doggie. You can use whatever color you like. The toy is advertised with the traditional florescent yellow, but if you think you can improve on what hundreds of hours of research has shown to be the best color, you just go right ahead!

So, you've shoved the Playdough in the doggie's mouth, now what? You have a little hand pump, and as you squeeze the pump the “poop” works it’s way through the dog’s digestive tract. I’m thinking this is actually a science game in disguise.

The sounds from the digestive tract get louder and louder as the “poop” gets closer to it’s exit. Suddenly, there you are! A big pile of perfectly formed, florescent yellow poop to shovel. I think this is where it can get dangerous. I believe all the players try and grab the poop with their shovel. I’m not certain where they’re shoveling it to, and I’m equally as convinced that I don’t want to know.

I’m still not sure exactly how you win the game, I think it’s whoever says, “OMG did you see that one?” the loudest wins.

Its hours of fun for the whole family!

“You’re a fast poop-shoveler little Sally.”

“Not as fast as you, mom!”

“He,he, well, we can’t all be expert poop shovelers from the beginning. It does take determination, hard work, and stick-to-it-iveness. In time, Sally, I’m sure you will be shoveling poop even BETTER than me!!!”

Wow, it just doesn’t get any better than that.

If you think shoveling dog (or cat) dung is fun, I've got a friend who will let you have a blast. LOL

Tammy- Wow, you have the most amazing friend! Tell her I'll bring my shovel and be over in a Jiffy! If you want, I'll share... :)

Sue,

If I were not on the other side of the country and broke, this would be my present to you. You could put marzipan in, instead of yellow goo, and eat the poo!

Hours of endless fun in 333ville,

(Dackel is the pet name for Dashunds in Germany - just another piece of useless junk floating around in my brain)

Merry Christmas to you and yours and Blessings for a fantastic New Year.

BTW is there a Pullizer for humor?

I can hear it now...

What will these toy makers think of next? Found this hub extremely funny!

Susan- I've seen what they thought of next, I just couldn't put it on a hub and not get banned! It's scary!

Thank you for the compliment!

There are people who make a good living scooping up dog poop for others. I just couldn't do it. I would have to lie when someone asked me what kind of business I was in. I'm thinking that those who are really good at this game may begin to aspire to do this professionally later in life. Somebody's got to do it....Funny stuff.

Chris- You crack me up, no matter where in the world you are- that's always a GREAT present!

This Marzipan that you speak of? What is that? It sounds familiar, but I'm thinking it doesn't come in a box with instructions like "add water and an egg" so I've probably not come across it.

I'm thinking about the useless junk in your brain and find myself glad you are not an Australian Tree Frog.

Dave Barry won a Pulitzer. I'm not sure how. I like the picture you paint of the awards. If that would ever happen, it would go down just. like. that. :O)

Merry Christmas to you and she-who-must-be-adored! Hope you enjoy your time half way around the world---which I'm thinking must mean you're in Texas.

Holy cow! I just watched the video! To me, the German language sounds kinda' like someone who is trying to poop, so it all fits! Hilarious.

Stan- that's a whole hub in itself! Can you imagine? How would you get paid exactly? Per piece of poop, perhaps? (ahh, alliteration with poop) If you were paid per piece, would that lead to cheating? Over-feeding of the dogs, finding cat poo and counting it, or worse....

Let me get this straight. You're completely comfortable with making a series starring Harry Manboobs, but you'd hate it if people knew you were a poop-picker upper.

I guess you just have to draw the line somewhere.

Stan- Yes, now that you mention it... it does sound that way! I was thinking of taking up German, but now I'll just think of pooping dogs every time I say anything!

It'll have to be French.

Sue (and Stan),

Try Dutch.

It's a random mix of German and English held together with phlegm...

Thanks for the good wishes, She is driving me nuts with Honey-do's right now, but I'll still pass on the message

Marzipan is ground almond paste with sugar, no work involved, and you know full well that Lemon County is in California, which is currently underwater (not kidding!)

And French is the official language of whiners..

Chris- Where do you find almond paste? Do they sell it at regular stores, or do you just put a bunch of almonds in a blender with glue?

Hmmm. Whiners. Are those people who make whine? Do the French put their whiners in a box. You know how I like my whine-in-a-box. It's just not classy otherwise.

I could try Dutch. They have cool shoes.

Sue,

It's all ready made that way, no work involved at all. Don't give Stan any though, he's out of TP. You'll find it in the bakery section of your ...

Oh, yeah, not a staple st most gas stations...

It's like natures candy....

Especially when defecated out of the business end of a plastic dog...

Chris- I just came from reading about Stan's dilemma. I was pretty sad for him for a while there, feeling bad for the itching that was bound to happen within moments of leaving the bathroom, then he found it.

His dad must be so proud.

Next year, I swear I'm getting this dog for Christmas, then I'm going to shove the almond past thingy in it's mouth. Then I'm going to send you the (just looked it up) Marzipan-poop for a Christmas gift. No need to thank me. What are friends for?

Susan, you and your friends, Chris and Stan really crack me up. You always did know how to hold your poo!

I am laughing my butt off over here! Nothing is coming out of my butt though. My nephews would love this toy!

Patdmania- there's nothing coming out your butt because you laughed it off. I have a bad habit of doing that too!

Go find your bum and take a look, there's probably a bit of yellow playdough stuck somewhere!

Thanks for reading, and for leaving the comment. I'm with you on the toy, I don't know a kid alive (and quite a few adults... pick me!) who wouldn't love to get this toy!!

Hours of family togetherness!!
