YES!

Where it all began - on the Tan Hill ride:

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.

May one ask why?  ???

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.
Never tell me the odds.

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.
Never tell me the odds.

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