Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

It's the first day of early voting, and we all know what that means: We only have a few more weeks of watching Facebook clog up with unfunny Big Bird memes while your Twitter feed on debate night turns into the saddest open mic night ever. Seriously, I'm going to go freeze myself in carbonite like Hans Solo and you can come defrost me after the election is over and everyone just goes back to arguing about Breaking Bad.

Apparently I'm not the only person who shares this sentiment. The fine folks at Therapoo, makers of 100 percent biodegradable dog-poo bags, have cut to the chase whilst also trying to milk the last bit from the election teat.

They've made dog poop disposal bags with caricatures of each candidate. Or political party mascot, if you want to make a statement on a bag of feces but don't want it to get too personal.

So if you're the type of person who sees taking your dog for a walk as the perfect time to open up a political dialogue with strangers or feels like carrying out your end of the social contract gets too mundane and you're looking to spice things up, this is right up your alley.

Here's hoping that after the election ends they open up some sort of suggestion box for potential future poo bags. Imagine the temporary gratification you would feel when using a Larry the Cable Guy dog poo bag while gently muttering to yourself, "No no, YOU get 'er done!"

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
