The Urban Dog Owner's New Pithy Maxim

Find a poop, pick it up, and all day long you'll have good luck.

After all, why should you have good luck for finding something that enriches you (however slightly)? It would make much more sense to think that the good deed of picking up the poop of someone else's dog would be good for your karma, resulting in your getting good luck. Besides, you've obtained immediate good luck by eliminating the possibility of stepping in it.
