False-Bottom Food Containers

So other people don't STEAL the ice cream........

Being fed up with people stealing my food, I want a special container, made specially for people like me. A container with a false bottom.

You take whatever you want and put it on the top. Make is something nasty, that no-one likes, or bothers to steal. Say, green-bean-&-tuna casserole. Or something like that.

And in the false bottom, hidden away from prying eyes, you can store ice cream, cookies, whatever you want.

No-one's going to steal green-bean-&-tuna casserole, right?

It would work equally well with drink containers. Hidden Coca-Cola in the soy-milk carton, or something.

       Nice [+]. The best part, is that as the weeks & months go by, you only need to refill the bottom part, leaving the top part to age to a perfect repulsiveness. Just need to have a good seal.   

       Oh, and start w/ JHC's spicy leftovers....

       Professional food burglars will of course become familiar with this product and be alert for it, just like those fake shave cream dispensers where people keep their loose $20's.

       Eww. What if you forget about it? Four years later you have a knew and really hairy strain of supervirus. Don't mess with ma food man! :P

       [DF], I remember the anno about false bottom pringles canisters, as an alternative to the tear away... Now, you've done up and enhanced the idea, wOw-eEe-wOw. [+]   

       In general, I'm beginning to suspect that false bottoms rock and roll.

       Personally, I'm a big fan of all sorts of hidden compartments.
Soterios, May 05 2005
  

       Hope you find this (+) before the stuff on top turns.   

       Great for hiding the acid in the freezer. [+]

       Is food stealing a major problem? Why does this happen? Have you contacted the authorities?

       I suspect DF has college roommates

       Probably after the thieves see the greenbean/tuna casserole in there, you could replace the whole container with a normal pint of ice cream and they wouldn't look inside. I don't think you need a false bottomed thing at all.

       and another false bottom under the false bottom to hide your money.

       I want a false bottom so that the next time a mugger tries to take away my bottom at knifepoint I can present him with my false bottom, safe in the knowledge that my real bottom is still in my trousers.
wagster, May 06 2005
  

       Right on!, [UB]
daseva, May 06 2005
  

       Not to mention a false false bottom to thwart thieves wise to the false bottom strategy, po.
Soterios, May 06 2005
  

       Is not a false false bottom true?
daseva, May 06 2005
  

       Yes, but (not a false false bottom)=true bottom
wagster, May 06 2005
  

       Sorry, I was thinking recursively, not logically. You know, it's false bottoms all the way down.
Soterios, May 06 2005
  

       Reading my mind again, Sot, and that's just plain scary!
daseva, May 06 2005
  

       Smacks lips.

       This thread is getting strange.....

       [+] I like this. (It also has the comments to [UB] without [UB] annos...)

       Ha - that's because at some time during the lifespan of the idea someone did a high dive, and forgot they had been using their parachute as a moth motel.
xenzag, Jan 18 2013
  

       This green-bean-&-tuna casserole has been around since 2005. I wonder why the Fox doesn't throw it out.
