WTF Wednesday - The Poop Truck Cometh

I know, I know, it is Thursday, but I am going to pretend that it is still Wednesday because the alternative would be that these things are starting to happen every day which would be more than the Mango can bear.

This post has the word Poo in it many times, so you can imagine the subject matter and if you are squeamish, then turn back, OK?

Whilst momma is most vigilant about collecting and disposing of my poo on a daily basis, I was alarmed to discover that she is far less fastidious regarding her own, ahem, deposits, and those of the master.

No, friends, she collects the poo in large underground containers and then every year the big poop truck arrives to take it away.

Yup, that's right, just stick that hose down the hole and away we go...

Ruh roh. Appears the poop truck had a little accident itself. Spilled whatchyacall hydraulic fluids all over my driveway.

They had to call in a backup poop truck.

No worries, whilst the driver waited Master showed off the front porch (which is almost done, I swear). We like this driver guy because he has been visiting our house like forever and is the same age as momma and master and they always like to chit chat. In fact, if he had to be stranded, my estate was a good place for it to happen.

The backup arrived and pumped out the poo and a tow truck of relentlessly huge proportions took away the sick truck.

Listen, as long as we are on the topic, here is something I never showed you before... guess what it is?

Did you guess Mt. Mango Poo in the back yard? Hehehe. Made ya look!

After the poop truck goes away I always need to reassert my Mango-ness on the top of the poo bunker.

Now you thought you already had your WTF moment, right? WRONG! Here it comes...

They pumped out 1000 gallons, you heard me, 1000 gallons of poo from right under my estate! I am living on a toxic waste site I tell you. Don't be surprised if I sprout a third, oh, em, FIFTH leg or something. Yuh! Call the EPA!

OK, so maybe that wasn't WTF enough for you. How about momma supervising the whole thing and making an actual movie! Fast forward to the 1:30 mark to hear how loopy momma has gotten on her vacation. Maybe work isn't such a bad place for her after all...


Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Something is definitely up in the dog cave and I am concerned that momma is attempting home improvements.

Now she has about as much patience for that as PeeWee has for waiting his turn at agilities. Yuh, like two seconds after she started scraping wall paper she was already crying.

Plus I saw a suspicious looking thing on the desk with words like "Inspired Lilac" and "Wisteria" on it. That can't be good.

Help! Let me in! Don't change my dog cave!

WOW this is THE best vacation movie evah! for a second, thought the poo truck would hook up to the mango.. or did i miss that part. pooohoooohoo.

BODIE said...

Oh My Dog Mango, the bit where your Momma looked down the big hole was scarier than watching the movie JAWS!!! da da da da da da WOOF.

Unknown said...

OMD Mango! That was the Funniest WTF EVER!

I am a bit concerned though. We haves NEVER had a poo truck come to our you thinks I am blissfully unaware of the impending disaster building up beneath me??

Why am I all of a sudden feelin pooped? BOL! That was the longest intestine I have ever seen! Like to see the tapeworm that can handle that!

Agreein that Momma might want to go back to work ;)

Unknown said...

Mang you mean you dont go out and scoop your own poop?! geesh your poor mommy!


Gus said...

Mango Man...

here is what happens with home improvements at our house.

The muzzer gets the bug. She spends Huge amounts of time looking at pictures in magazines and books in the library, more time shopping and bringing home paint and fabric samples, EVEN MORE time convincing the Dad that this is a good idea.

She starts the project. She gets about as far as the Mango Mom got on the dog cave. She cries, she rages, sometimes she falls off the ladder!

Then she hires someone and gets it done.

That is our recommendation.


monica said...

SeaThreePeeO said...

That is a loada poo!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

OK, Mango, this was a first for us. - all we can say is that was one huge load of poop. And we didn't think that big long green snake was ever going to get to the end.

We feel badly for you - you look so sad in that last pic.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Achieve1dream said...

BOL! Who would have thought poop could be entertaining?? Or maybe it was your Momma. :)

Oh and I definitely would not have gone under that poop truck either! Yikes!


Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

A little too much TMI on the poop, Mango.

Dad tried home improvements last week. The result was no water for 3 days, a huge headache for Moms, and a plumber's bill!! Why do they think they can pull this stuff off?

Woofs and Kisses!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Are we SURE that's hydraulic fluid?

Raymond and Busby said...

No offense Mango, but we think you need to get your Mom out of the heat. That video could be her ticket to the room with the rubber walls.

Yo, Mangoman, I would have piss'd on that poop totem in the back yard too. What's a guy to do, afterall? Your friend, Cosmo

Mango deardog, change can be good! as long as there is a bathtub nearby to sleep in, that is. Your friend, Clover

Maxmom said...

Good luck with the dog-cave!

WFT Nobby said...

Thank goodness it was only hydraulic fluids that the truck spilled, eh?
And aren't you glad that us dogs don't have to run around after our humans, pick up their droppings and carry them around in a llittle plastic bag. I mean, eeeugh!
Toodle pip!
PS Don't worry about the dog cave, I mean I'm sure that you can 'redecorate' if it's not to your taste...

Holy CRAP! We have our septic pumped too. we had it pumped 2 or 3 times in our old house and once in our new before we left. ok, so here's the deal, every time we have it pumped, i conveniently make other plans so Mr. Wild Dingo has to be there. I pretend poop pumping doesn't exist. I get sick to my stomach from the smell! yuck.

how did you even go there to look? and oh my dog, yes, we were watching. thank dawg the internet doesn't have smell yet.

wags, wiggle, woos w/o poos

I'll admit mine was thinking along the lines of the subtitles in your movie...

Martine said...

First, we like posts about poop... your post about poop was much funner and informative than my stint of poop posts a few months ago. I never knew how this process worked and now thanks to your video it's all cleared up for me :)

Second, this was a HILARIOUS post. Oh gosh you had a us laughing a LOT!

Granite State Pet Sitting said...

The Poop Truck, What a job that must be in the Heat! I am glad to see that you marked your spot Mango. Stay Cool!

Marjie said...

We are hooked to a "sewer line", which means they take the poop somewhere else. We have something called a "storm drain" that gets clogged and backs up into our basement, and Momma gets irate about it. Then she has to call a Rooter Dude and pay him a lot to get rid of the storm dumpings.

As for your wallpaper, Thor Momma has a message for Mango Momma:

"If it's actual paper wallpaper, don't bother to scrape it off. Just buy tubs of paste for about$6 and paint it on the back of your new wallpaper. If it's vinyl wallpaper, peel off starting at the corner, spray it with diluted white vinegar, and let it sit, then the backing will scrape right off."

Whatever. Then the dog cave will smell like a salad bar. You can come hang out in my dog cave while your Momma is going nuts.

Sue said...

Our Mom was thinking about writing a blog post about poop a couple weeks ago. She had it almost done and decided that maybe everyone would think it was too weird, so she deleted it.

You are a brave dog and our Mom think she might rewrite our own poop post.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Now that certainly is a lot of poop. What do you feed Mom anyway. 20 cups of kibble a day?
That was a very interesting video Mom.. WE can't wait till next year!!!

Golden Samantha said...

Hmmmnnnn... 90-something degrees and the poop truck dies. I couldn't stop laughing for ages... sorry! Especially when Mango reveals that Momma is redecorating. We are always on the edge of our seats when we come over to visit! Thanks M and D for all the fun! Can't think of a more exciting day.
Sammie and the gang

Kate said...

Sheesh!!!! Your ma is very excited about the poo pumping!

It reminds me of a plumber that has a truck with the words "The Poohs doctor"


Hey Mango, watch your balance there, thats not a cave you wanna be falling into....

About the dog cave tho, a bit of "wisteria" might brighten you up, make you feel energised and revitalised and all that.

Yeah right, who am I kidding!

Dear God why did I read this post?? Since Coco likes the, uh, candy logs, it is a wonder she didn't come running over to your yard.
Thanks alot. Your furever traumatized friends.

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Eeew. In the House With Wheels, we have a poo collection tank (and not the little trash can that Mom puts outside for our own deposits...) but it only hold like 50 gallons or something. I can't even IMAGINE 1000 gallons of poop. I guess your parents get a lot of fiber in their diets, huh? *grin*
