Bin Polite

A bin which thanks depositors

Inspired by [NumboJumbo]'s "Waste Bins that make Rude Noises".

A public rubbish bin that politely thanks people for their generous donations, and occasionally comments on various forms of waste in the style of a food critic.

<food critic>The traditional preperation of refuse vegetable matter was a gentle reduction through decomposition in a warm moist oven. This dish was enjoyed by growing plants accross the land but today is a recipe followed almost exclusively in rural areas. The modern fashion has been rapid pressure-cooking to create an energy-rich fuel. Personally I've always found it a little gassy for my tastes, chortle chortle.</food critic>

       Reminded me of an anno from my Flavoured Mud idea:   

       //I'm not sure we can offer the humble geophagite the accolade of 'connoseiur'. It's not as though they're in restaurants ordering a rich and palatable, softly moss-aged peat, garnished with sand and served with a scoop of freshly mashed clay, with a flute of fermented South American swamp mud on the side.//
