The etiquette artist who launched an underground campaign to highlight some of the worst manners exhibited on the subway, is taking his latest attempt at behavioral modification to the streets in an effort to curb an issue that infuriates most New Yorkers: dog crap. Fed up with the shit-stained sidewalks around the city, Jay Shells installed this piece on 14th Street near 8th Avenue that comes with a spool of biodegradable bags that may just guilt asshole pet owners into actually using them. This is the first of what should be many crapping canines, as he is actively accepting suggestions for other hoods in need of potent reminders.
