Waste of a Sign

Questions raised by the following sign:

Dog Waste

  1. Who is the one that really needs picking up after? The dog seems to be walking, the man seems to be squatting.
  2. Do sign makers not have access to a comma key?
  3. Does dog doo only affect the health of children? Once we grow up, do we form dog doo antibodies?
  4. Why is that if you read only the most prominent lines, it says: “Dog Waste / It’s required by law”? Shouldn’t a sign get across the same general message from a distance that it does up close?
  5. Why is the man scooping the dog’s business onto a plate?
