Have you heard about “Dog Poop Girl”? No, she’s not some new style superhero, although I do believe that her partner, Dog Poop Man, has made an appearance on “Whose Line Is It Anyways?” (couldn’t you just watch Ryan Stiles and Colin Mochrie for hours?)

No, Dog Poop Girl is a real live woman, from South Korea, whose real last name is Kim. And it seems that Miss Kim was on the subway one day. And her little dog, too. And much to Miss Kim’s mortification, her little dog decided that the bowels of the subway were a great place to evacuate his own bowels.


In fact, so embarrassed was she, that she ‘forgot’ to clean up after her dog.

This despite the fact that one bystander thrust a tissue at her (she thanked him and used it to wipe her little dog’s bottom, rather than the floor), and another then reminded her that she needed to clean up after her dog, and gave her a rag with which to do it. But so embarrased was she, that she instead just petted her little dog until the next stop, when she departed, leaving others to clean up the mess.

And there it would have ended, except that the fellow passenger who had provided the tissues with which she wiped her little dog’s backside also had a camera phone, with which he took pictures of the entire thing.

And posted them online.

And from there, the sh-t really hit the Internet.

The thing took on a life of its own (the online posting of the incident, not the excrement), as the story was picked up, re-posted, and discussed to pieces. Miss Kim’s embarrassment at her dog’s indiscretion was nothing compared to the shame and disdain Miss Kim suffered at the hands of the jury of her Internet peers. The resulting firestorm is itself now the subject of more discussion, posts, and re-posts, as the world wide grapevine both talks about Kim, and talks about whether they should talk about Kim.

 

The story has even crossed both miles and media boundaries, and has been picked up by none other than such venerable bastions of reporting as the Washington Post.

Ultimately Miss Kim posted an online apology and picture of her dog, apparently to show how contrite he was as well. The apology said, if the online translations are to be believed, “I know I was wrong, but you guys are so harsh. I’m regret it, but I was so embarrassed so I just wanted to leave there. I was very irritable because many people looked at me and pushed me to clean the poop. Anyhow, I’m sorry. But, if you keep putting me down on the Internet I will sue all the people and at the worst I will will commit suicide. So please don’t do that anymore.” [Picture and original Korean text here.]

Wow..threatening to commit suicide seems a bit harsh there. But Aunty can imagine that Miss Kim really was made to feel very uncomfortable by this whole ordeal.

But take heart, Miss Kim, there may be a silver lining to this sh-tstorm – you can always try selling the dog poop to the GoldenPalace.com casino!
