What the Garbage Cans are Saying about the City Union Strike

Something about the streets filling up with trash makes you examine your surroundings a little differently. Like the ads on the sides of our overflowing garbage cans... they take on unanticipated meanings when stuffed and draped with refuse, don't they? Like this one above...

OH THE IRONY - the ferry workers are on strike too!

Necessity is the mother of all invention? Why don't we all tie our garbage together with ribbons and fling them into street signs, power lines, etc?

Hi, please come in! We've been expecting you! Sorry, the place is a bit of a mess - gosh, I swear I'm not usually this messy! It's just, well, I'm having a bit of a rough time at the moment, ha ha ha, and I haven't had the chance to vacuum lately! Here let me move that so you can sit down...

See, the problem is not the strike, the problem is that our garbage cans should have been built about 9 feet longer and 3 feet deeper to accommodate reasonable levels of trash!

toronto garbage strike

This one was finally told to chew with its mouth shut.

toronto garbage strike

You want my fingers to do WHAT? Hell no, that's what the internet is for! Now get rid of these books, all of them, out of my sight! Put them in the street with all the other trash!

Ahh, what a beautiful walk to work. who wouldn't want to live and work in Toronto?
