Talkin’ Trash

with 2 comments

Most people like to take things for granted and if they’re not taking them
for granted they’re not giving them any thought.

Trash and trash service I think would rank pretty high on the list of things
most people never give any thought to, whereas I think about trash all the

Where I use to live trash was effortlessly taken away via a container which
I refer to as a polycart, where I live now you set your bags of trash on the
curb naked and revealing to the world, (aka neighbors).

You never consider the message you send to the world, (aka neighbors) with
the contents of your refuge until they can see right through the bag. “Oh
look, David is having troubles with regularity as evident shown by the two
boxes of ‘Fiber Squares’ and empty bottles of ‘Liquid Fiber’ stuffed
in-between the ‘Twinkies’ and ‘Pinwheels'”.

You can think of much more disgusting things to reveal about the “trash on
display”, but I can’t paint every nightmare for you.

What has come to my attention lately is incredible racism, (i.e.
segregation) that exists in the trash world. Crazy am I? Just take a look at
the evidence.

The trash liners that everyone keeps in their home, be it a kitchen liner or
a bathroom liner is white in color. The trash can you use outside or the bag
you use for nasty, big or outdoor yard cleanup is black. No one ever uses
the black bag inside and no one is seen raking leaves into a white trash
bag. Why can’t trash bags live together, why can’t they be interchangeable?
Why can’t we throw our trash into both bags equally? It’s all a big stinky

The next time you’re buying trash bags, ask for gray bags and help the
neighbors, (aka the world) overcome such a silly and unnecessary prejudice.

Egg On!

—Riddle Me Rooster—

Scott came up with one hell of a joke, (even though it was more of a short
story) and Bschooled came up with an even more impressive steal. CLT could
still be a winner, but I have to wait until after my trip to Vegas. So
thanks everybody.

Tonight’s riddle:

What is so fragile that even saying it can break it?

Submit you’re answer as a comment for the chance to win fabulous
make-believe prizes and come back next Sunday for the answer. Good luck!

  1. I never gave trash much thought either until I moved here. These people are like Native Americans, they use everything for something. They’re not big consumers, they feed the scraps of food to the stray cats and dogs, and I don’t know what they do with everything else. There is one small dumpster each which serves about 40 houses. And they empty it once a week. I think that we are the only ones who use the freaking thing. They don’t even sell big trash bags here, we just use grocery store bags. Which are white….racists!

    Well depending where you are it could either be the ice, the peace or the silence. I’m going with the silence.

    • Scott Oglesby, in a totally serious voice, I found your comment to be very interesting. America is a consumer machine and the waste is ridiculous. I’ve never understood why that is really. I guess it’s because it’s so easy to be a trash maker. Excellent comment, really got the ol’ brain a turnin’.
