Let Them Eat Cake: 10 Discriminating Dumpsters

You can trash dumpsters all you like (see what we did there?) but even these much-denigrated, flame spewing and dive-worthy disposal bins have high standards.

Someone left the cake out in the er, dumpster? Mind you, things could be worse – could be raining.

Now really, who would throw away a perfectly good Black Forest Drip Cake… or an unreasonably oversized facsimile thereof? Maybe it’s one of those giant hollow pop-out cakes, retired ignominiously after one too many bachelor parties? A sad end to so much joy – and that’s the cherry on top.

Paper, Cuts

What’s this, a Cardboard Brains reference at WebEcoist? Do we spy a comma after “Cardboard”, transforming the message into “Cardboard, Only Stupid” and a shout-out to Alex Karras’ iconic line from Blazing Saddles, “Mongo, only pawn in game of life”? Are we overthinking all of this? Maybe we all need to take a hint from the dedicated dumpster above and dump things down. (image via Cody McComas)

Not a Dumps Turd

That’s a nice little sign you’ve got there… for me to poop on! Which is OK, as the sign apparently forbids dumping IN the dumpster. Never mind the fact that the first four letters of dumpster are D U M P. In any case, all of this scatological speculation is for naught since dogs can’t read. (image via Jeff Dugan)

Dumpster Rage

Don’t get angry, get even angrier! This out-rage-ous dumpster doesn’t need your trash, won’t accept the tears of your crushed enemies and the lamentations of their women, and slams its lid against those who seek to dispose of oversized cakes and/or dog poop. If that makes you mad, then you’ve come to the right place. (image via Edna Winti)

Wasted Minds?

Don’t throw your life away, get an education… in waste management, presumably. Wouldn’t you know it, the website address and phone number on the side of this dumpster belong to the dumpster owner, Fero Waste and Recycling Inc., and you betcha they are hiring! We’re conflicted, however, as the choice being presented is either work for Fero or “Stay In School”. (image via bill lapp)
