I went to take my trash out last night, and right near the Dumpster*, on the ground, I found

Should I be more excited that a) I have a new thing to hang up on my wall, b) Jews live in my building. Or... should I be upset that someone actually was throwing this away? Other than the back being a little messed up, there's nothing wrong with it. And for those of you who are wondering, yes, it was definitely trash. It was in a pile of crap by the dumpster. = Trash.


*I always capitalize Dumpster, since it doubles as my little sister's name.

Cool find. No telling why somebody was tossing it.

Actually, you're correct for capitalizing Dumpster because I believe it's actually a trademark. It may not be, but according to AP style it's capitalized for some reason or another, unless that's changed in the last year or so(this tricked lots of kids in my MMC2100 class sophomore year :-D).

huh. I'd like to think that adds to my reason, but it probably doesn't. So Dumpster is a trademark. Interesting.

I think the trademark name is Dempsey Dumpster. So Dumpster's just part of the name.

...this is cute. Dempsey is the name of a cat that was found in a dumpster
once upon a time!

It is from a trademark, but it's actually Dempster Dumpster. :)

Who knew that the Dumpster had anything in common with Kleenex, Vasaline, and the like.

Definitely awesome. I remember I found a large pen and ink drawing, framed, near a dumpster (I refuse to acknowledge any such trademark; also, I don't know your sister), and it now has a prominent place above my mantle. Well, it would be above the mantle if my current apartment were as cool as my last one. Either way, finding art in the trash always makes for a good day.
