Where are my beautiful yellow steel trash cans?!

Justrite Brand - when only the BEST (China-made Crap) will do!

We have all been seeing the face diapers being donned again for Season 3 of the Kung Flu PanicFest. All the fashion magazines recommend we accessorize in order to round out our appearances. Seeing as Cosmo magazine hasn't come to the house in about 25 years - accidentally, but we didn't want to stop the bikini pictures from coming to the mailbox - I don't know if these face diapers are part of "the look" now.

I do know that if some SCIENTIFIC EXPERT, perhaps our beloved Dr. Fauci, has again recommended we don the masks, well who am I to argue, especially through a stack of them, as it comes out broken and unreadable anyway? If Dr. Fauci told me ... (Ahh, crap, I got Aerosmith in my head again.)

The thing is, this new Delta brand virus, as opposed to COVID CLASSIC, is said to be a couple of thousand times more contagious in terms of spreading viral load through our orifices. (I'll just stick with one orifice for now - no, I mean for this post too, dammit.) I would figure it's not linear, but we should probably be stacking up a few masks, maybe 5 or 10 thick, at this point, to get that same protection we had before for the Classic. (I mean, nobody with a mask on got sick, right?) As Peak Stupidity has admonished you all before, C'mon non-experts! It's ALL layering these days!

These face masks get contaminated with the Kung Flu, Coke Classic or New Coke Delta, after a short time. We can get billions and billions more of these high quality, I they assure you, masks from China whenever we want. Therefore, we should be religiously throwing these things out, perhaps every 10 minutes. Of course, they can't go into a regular trash can or alongside the highway, as contaminated face masks are of course a MAJOR BIOHAZARD. They must go into proper OSHA approved and Chinese Q/A bought-off yellow steel trash cans. You've seen these at hospitals, I'm sure.

If we are to take this new Delta brand virus seriously, we'd better start properly disposing of these things. I just don't see these $133 + tax and shipping cans where I need them, that is, everywhere. Please don't get me wrong. I don't want to argue with the EXPERTS. I'm just curious. I may find myself sneezing behind the wheel of a large automobile. Where is my beautiful yellow steel trash can? You may ask yourself, "how did we get here?"

I just noticed that Peak Stupidity had a metric shit-ton of mask posts back last Spring and late Winter. They all have this same Kung Flu Stupidity topic key.

I found myself once explaining to my European wife what American garbage cans (the ones you used to put to the curb) used to look like, because I used to do hurdles over them when I was a kid, because they weren’t nearly as tall as today’s bins, so me jumping them was not as impressive as it sounds.

I also threw in the story about how hard it was to throw away a garbage can once it had been beaten to death by American Sanitation Engineers.

This is a good point. If the virus is so virulent, and masks are required, why aren't the masks treated as bio-hazardous waste? Why aren't there special receptacles in which to dispose them?

This aired on TV in the spring of 2019


Is reality a simulation? Predictive programming? Whatever it is...............it's weird.

PS A pretty pink crotchless face panty!
Local stores have the we strongly encourage you to wear the obedience muzzle and the PSA is gone off of the public address system.
The I'd buy that for a dollar store on the block has the masks required signs but no one to enforce it and the workers don't have any, besides the Muslim clerk.
I love the Gatsby mask with the lingerie material.
There is one that looks like a monster face and one that looks just like an unmasked face called the Karen trigger mask.
Terminal Madness can be wildly entertaining and fun so keep morale up and don't let it get you down.

PS: I bet that is a solid long-lasting can, Adam. Same company, but what's the chance they still make these in the US? Well, I just went to JustRite's "About Us" page:


That "us" does not stand for United States. Of course they have management and some other functions in Mattoon, Illinois, but that "our story" page doesn't tell any kind of story, because they don't want to admit it's all shopped out to China.

On a lighter note, that young lady is "not guilty". I will say that the face mask could be pretty convenient if she is something of a whiner. "Why can't we go out to ,, before we go below decks?" "What? I can't make anything out of that. You may as well not bother talking. Now where were we?"

PS: Good evening Mr. Moderator,

We have a waste can just like that, only it's red and vintage. Kinda the color of a coke classic can, without the white swoosh. It's so old I'm sure it's not made in china.

Ok, so I just went and looked. Ours is made by the JustRite Company, Chicago Illinois. Made in USA. It even has a cool, gold(ish) colored Underwriters Laboratories tag on the can. It looks like this one...


but it's in better condition.

Most unfortunately, it looks like swim wear with matching face diapers is a thing now.
