Hefty Leaves

Big gargabe bags covered with leaves.

I think huge hefty bags covered with leaves would be good for several reasons.

If you are homeless, you could put them over you for a great nights sleep. The coppers would think you were merely a pile of fall folaige.

The kids could make leaf tents to hide in, or sit on them while having a picnic lunch. Heck they could even stack them up and then jump on em.

When done you could just invert them, stuff em with *your* dead leaves, and then use them to hold them till the truck comes to get them.

Hefty Leaves.

       why hefty?   

       just thinking of you - a programme with Stephen Fry in your part of the world on TV at present.

       Who scrambled my brain on the 12th and then hung me out to dry with this dribble? (God, the things you do while on library time!!!)

       You could put them over trees in the fall and confuse the hell out of people.

       // why hefty? // If they weren't hefty, then the wind might blow them off you while you slept ... because you wouldn't want to sleep *inside* them, because, being plastic, they'd not be breathable.   

       Also, if they weren't hefty, then you'd miss the spectacle of someone kicking through piles of fallen leaves and stubbing a toe.   

       For these two functions, you could just use normal leaves, but weigh down the bag's corners with concealed bricks.   

       However, I also like the idea of expecting a leaf to tumble delicately from a branch, and then seeing it drop straight down like a hefty thing. For this, you would need to mould the leaf from, say, copper.   

       I see this as a 'defeating expectations' aesthetic idea, a bit like some of [xenzag]'s... but I may be talking gargabe.

       Why invert them to put the leaves in? It would be more attractive than a bunch of plastic bags at curbside to leave them leafy side out.

       Agreed, and also the gargabe collector could easily tell the leaves from the regular gargabe.

       Gargabe, I thought that was an aborigine that lived in the outback and ate dingos or was that a dingo that ate aborigine. It's been a long time since I Googled it.
