Traditionally, most people think that anyone running for political office is full of crap, and now one Fort Worth based company is hoping to see some financial gain from that idea.
The Huffington Post is reporting that Therapoo has developed a new product for election season. Their new product is dog poop collection bags which feature the faces of President Barack Obama, and Republican Nominee Mitt Romeny. They are selling the bags for $19.95 for a box of 100. You can purchase a box for yourself HERE.
Can these bags tell us who might win the election?
Currently the Obama bags are selling three times faster than the Romeny bags (is that a good or bad sign for the President?). Danny Huber, the owner of Therapoo, says that most of his customers aren’t that political.
“A lot of the people buying them think both candidates are full of crap,” he told The Huffington Post. “Still, most of the sales are from conservative states.”
A New York based company has also decided to get into the Presidential dog poo business. MetroPaws is selling its bags for $14.99, but you only receive a box of 80 bags. You can buy a box HERE.
However their owner told The Huffington Post his company is seeing completely different results from Therapoo. “Right now, Romney is selling better than Obama with stores at a 2 to 1 margin, but he’s selling 5 to 1 better than Obama with online sales,” MetroPaws executive Jonathan Bolton said. “Interestingly enough, every order from Utah is for Romney.”
