Gothamist knows why the paparazzi was invented, to capture moments like this one. As Sarah Jessica Parker is filming the final episode of Sex and the City in Paris, cunning photographers caught her stepping into dog poo.

Gothamist is reminded of a chapter in David Sedaris's Me Talk Pretty One Day: Sedaris, living in Paris, tries to explain why Jodie Foster is carrying a bag of dog poo, because, in France, picking up after dog poo is unheard of, and Sedaris realizes why America is so great. Yes, God bless America's pooper scooper laws.
