The Homer Simpson Rule

Awhile ago, our family was gathered in front of the television watching The Simpsons. We like it, we think it's funny. It doesn't take much to amuse us.

The particular episode we were watching had a kitchen trash can that everyone walked by, carefully added their trash, then walked away. It grew taller and taller and taller. Finally Homer put something on it and the whole pile went crashing.

That's when Bart and Lisa did their irritating laughs and reminded Homer of the rule: He who knocks the pile over has to take out the trash.

Well, I think we've been watching too many cartoons. The past few days I've been walking by our recycling pile, carefully adding to it, and so has Bob and Thomas. Surely, it has got to come down tomorrow. I wonder who will knock it over.

LMAO I just commented on that very episode a few days ago. The Leaning Tower of Garbage. Chad had just balanced some plastic wrap carefully on the top of the pile. It's his job to take it out, and Vic said, "Why don't you sack up that trash?" Chad said, "It's not full yet." LOL

Ah the joys of plastic milk jugs. I'm tellin' ya, milk in a bag is the way to go. ;)

Hey, we have that kind of a trash can. The kids take it out and it always end up with an artful sculpture at the top before it goes out the door.
