If you pooled your money with co-workers to purchase a bunch of lottery tickets, then got screwed out of the $105 million (after taxes) jackpot after one of those co-workers said she won it with a ticket that "wasn’t on the group plan," you would be pretty pissed, right?

To find gold, just follow a rainbow dog's asshole!

One Taiwanese city has developed an ingenious Midas-like new solution on how to deal with dog waste on its streets and sidewalks.

As Reuters is reporting, New Taipei City hopes to persuade residents to clean up after their dogs by offering raffle tickets in exchange for each bag of droppings they submit. Each ticket offers a chance at a drawing for one of three gold ingots, worth $2081, $624 and $416 respectively, Business Insider is reporting.

An official with the city's environmental protection department, is quoted saying:

“We believe this innovative measure will raise people’s awareness of the problem. Through the raffle, we expect the public to pay closer attention to environmental sanitation and play a more active role in keeping their surroundings clean."

Would-be collectors will also have access to free garbage bags, and rewards will be given for people who photograph pet owners who leave their dogs' messes uncleaned.
