In a stunningly hilarious twist to the old "burning paper bag filled with dog crap" routine, that has been routinely played out down throughout the centuries, some local kids are thought to be behind the setting fire to a whole shit load of dog poop in a poop 'n' scoop bin.
The lid of the bin was wedged open with a brick and paper stuffed inside and set alight. Fire fighters were called to the bin in Rutland Gardens at 11pm last Wednesday.
Fire fighter, Phil Mehose said: "Kids set fire to a dog waste bin. It was wedged open with a brick and paper wedged in there."
It is thought that the intention was to see if anyone would attempt to stamp it out and receive a nasty surprise for their heroic efforts, as per the old dogdoo on the doorstep trick.
The kaka in a carryall caper can trace its history back to ancient Australopithecus, who would leave huge, flaming dinosaur turds outside another cave dwellers entrance, who would then attempt to extinguish the effluent inferno by bodily throwing themselves on to the flaming pile only to end up covered in dino-doings. The height of hilarity for our Flinstonesque forefathers.
