    So, I come home drunk and happy from the bars expecting to find wonderful joyous news on the lovely Wonkette.web.tv and instead I am subjected to this NIGHTMARE!!!! Wait, was that second guy serious or mock-serious. I seriously am too drunk to tell.

  2. mylesfromnowhere

    I did bring a bag. It was that brown one just below the empty wine bottle in that second can. Yeah, that one, with the Jim Beam bottle. No, that’s not Beam in there, where else do you expect me to piss, the bathrooms are all full of garbage!

    LNS douchetards on trash patrol. I saw park rangers picking up trash. Perhaps I should protest this waste of my taxpayer’s dollars.

    Trash (and by Trash I mean refuse) was overflowing in St. Louis when Obama came to visit. Blame the folks who supplied us with the bottled water while waiting for Obama. At least these folks have coffee.

    Stupid DC’ers, what did you think was gonna happen when you elected a Muslin into office?! Have fun with your garbage, terrorists!

    Dude, we ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BRING bags. Homeland Security has told us that we are not to bring bags larger than 8″ by 6″ by 4″, which is large enough to carry one (1) piece of garbage. We can’t all just carry our trash back to our Georgetown pads, OK?

    I’d like to wave my hand dismissively and say that obviously those trash cans will be emptied multiple times between now and the inauguration, but I do have some experience with how Washington sanitation services work, so I don’t feel particularly confident in doing so.

    Fucking hell yeah that was the funniest thing i’ve seen ever tonight. holy fuck lema go check that ut again.

    Trash cans are also a good place to hide bombs, which is why you don’t see any trash cans in Tokyo.

    If you drink hard liquor, you only need one bottle and won’t piss as much.

    [re=221725]bago[/re]: “No Views, No Thought, 100 Comments.” That about sums up the Internet, doesn’t it?

  10. hobospacejungle

    I love the faux earnestness of the second idiot. Is he afraid this trash will somehow make it into his apartment? That this particular can of trash won’t be emptied and will simply stay there, overflowing, for all eternity?

    ZOMG THIS TRASH CAN IZZ FULL PLZ PEEPUL THINK OF THE CHILDRENS THIS IS MY HOMETOWN I JUS DON WANIT EFFED UP IS THAT TOO MUCH TO AKS?? IZZIT?

    I’d like to take a big swing at you, sarge.

    [re=221730]bago[/re]: Oh man!
    The Johnston’s and the Palin’s should just get on Springer and get it the fuck over.

  12. shortsshortsshorts

    OBAMA IS MAKING WASTE MANAGEMENT INTO A SHADOW GOVERNMENT. WATCH IT NOW!!1!! WAKE UP SHEEPLES!!!!!!!~!1!1
    When liberal gets retarded= this video.

  13. Darehead

    [re=221769]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Like Mr. Quayle once said, waste is a terrible thing to mind.

    Did any one actually visit their blog? I had a long debate whether I wanted to find the right spot, press pause and type a long URL. Anyway, if you are as lazy as me, here you go:

    There are lots of useful tips and phone numbers to call + in true Obamabot style, a phone script you can use on your friends & relatives.

    These silly kids, don’t they know that true Hobo America style demands you light fully filled trash cans alight and huddle around them to keep warm? The full bins are a necessary government service/WPA work program

  15. mylesfromnowhere

    Today, we are asked to hitch our unicorns to the hopey wagon and give service to ‘merika, we are all sanitation workers. also. cept for pickin up those sanitary napkins. thats puma work.

    [re=221821]mylesfromnowhere[/re]:
    Actually, my thought was that people volunteer to BE trash cans today and tomorrow. Wear a coat with big pockets.

    It’s all part of the new green economy.

  17. icedog

    It’s amazing that in this big ol’ world those two found each other. I wonder which one is the wife?

  18. NoWireHangers

    Yes this video is kind of strange, but OMG I WOULD SO HIT THE TALL ONE, HARD AT THAT, GIMMEE A PIECE OF THAT SWEET SWEET MILK CHOCOLATE, MAMA NEEDS SOME LOVING!!!1!

  19. Cy_Guy

    [re=221744]Darehead[/re]: Yeah, I actually think the Park Service/Secret Service/PIC had the right idea by not placing garbage cans every 50 feet where they themselves could become a hazard. instead, there are a few strategically placed dumpsters – two for trash and two for mixed recyclables located behind (each?) food/bev concession tent. This way you are encouraged to leave your garbage near where it is generated rather than bringing it back into the crowd.

    I do wonder about the “no bag” rule though, it seems like it would be impossible to keep people from bringing in empty garbage bags rolled up. These are handy as they become instant emergency ponchos with the addition of a few strategically placed holes. They also make good groundcloths should there be enough space to actually site (which there likely will be if you get far enough back from the JumboTrons).

    All-in-all, I was pretty impressed with how yesterday’s event went. And for people who weren’t there and are concerned about bathrooms for Tuesday, they had easily enough bathrooms for 2-3 Million people – basically they made walls of port-a-potties instead of fencing, around the perimeter of the semi-secured area. (The secured area lined the sidewalks port-a-potties and had burly soldiers and fences to guard the perimeter.)

    [re=221897]Cy_Guy[/re]: Burly guards? I don’t think I can shit under those conditions. Unless one of them wants to join me…

  21. finallyhappy

    well, part of the volunteer responsibility tomorrow will be to clean up so these morons do not have to worry that the trash on the mall will migrate to their apartment. I would like to see the fancy people taking bags of trash to the Willard or the Four Seasons.

  22. PancakeBreakfast

    No D.C. resident would ever expect things to actually get done in an efficient manner. These tools fail at being true Washingtonians.

  23. Flaming O

    “Bring a bag; that’s what it’s all about.”

    I thought the hokey-pokey was what it was
    all about.

  24. Mr Blifil

    I’d be much more concerned where all the used condoms are going to go, especially considering the massive free condom distribution program over which the President-elect is supposed to be personally presiding. Is a Prez-elect actually allowed to preside before taking office? Shit.

    I’m thinking the Washington Monument lawn is going to be looking like that scene from Zabriskie Point by tomorrow…

  25. President Beeblebrox

    [re=221730]bago[/re]: As I sit here in my meth-induced hayes, I weep for the future of my nefu who will have to pull his head out of his buttt and spend some time with his white-trash governor/baby momma’s momma, because we arent palins so there for we arent white trash.

  26. SpikeyDog

    What a cute couple. Maybe they should bring some of that trash back to their DC love nest. I luvz green gaze.

  27. Joe the Truck Nutz

    I think I recognize these douchebags. Weren’t they on that LNS inaugural invitation? Trenholm has a sad about all the garbage in D.C.
