Do dog bins count?

At last: a thread worth reading and pictures worth looking at on this forum. I especially like the tastefully arranged array of bins in last picture.

If they are as artistically arranged as the array in the last picture, I for one would be fascinated. As long as the lid is left firmly closed.

Some dog bins are sponsored.  A few round here are sponsored by the makers of Drontal worming tablets, which makes some kind of sense, and I suppose Febreze might want to get in on the act.  Maybe not the local curry house though.  Especially if they sell sheek kebabs.

Like so many threads on YACF - it's an In Joke. You know - someone says something banal, and about 50 people respond with "FUCK YEAH" and "Damn Right!" and you are left thinking "WTF?" but daren't say anything lest you look A Chump?

Well. You had to be there. On the Tan Hill ride, we waited in Topcliffe for Wowbagger to fix a puncture, and Jane - somewhat punch-drunk from the start, was looking for a bin. She was most animated about finding a bin - oblivious to the fact there was such a device next to the bench she was sitting on.

Thereafter that night - any cry of "Is there a bin?" caused maximum hilarity to ensue. Like I said - you had to be there.

Huh! No one asked why bridges though, did they? Just another example of the discrimination we bin lovers face.

A Google image search for journalist bins finds the above and even, improbably, Wayne Rooney, but no journalists rooting through bins chiz.

A friend of mine has a professional interest - he drives a bin lorry.

When on holiday, he makes it a point of principle to have his photo taken next to the local equivalent of a wheelie bin.  Just so that he can show his work colleagues that he's still thinking about work.

Now if Kim can find a way to get a picture of a cat, bin, bridge, and narwhal simultaneously, then she'll pretty much have covered most areas of interest.

If she really wanted to be adventurous, she get a shot of a bicycle in with all of those as well, but that might be getting silly. ;D
Actually, it is rocket science.

I reckon we can hack about with the famous "Think Your (sic) Having a Bad Day?" shark/helicopter/Golden Gate image to get there.  Just make the diver into a cat, the helicopter into a flying wheelie bin and the shark into a YEAAAHHH AINT NO HOOVES ON THAT narwhal.

I took this one as a homage to Auntie Helen, but re-framed it to get the bin in shot too...
