Scatomancy


Divination has many forms. There's cartomancy (reading cards), tasseomancy (reading tea leaves), extispicy (reading the entrails of animals), these being arguably the most well-known forms of augury. Reading bones has so many forms that it comes under many names: scapulimancy, omoplatoscopy, slinneanachd, oracle bones, etc.

But I want to know if anyone has tried to read dog poop before. When I came home tonight, this is what I found on my garage. I'm trying to imagine how the dog made such an orderly line....

What could this mean? Hmmm....
