Ewwww, especially combined with the previous one.

Who wrote their copy?

Obvious question–what if everyone else did, too?
8. Best Lost & Found
Dirty shirts in GM bag intended for cleaners, was tossed into the garbage by the cleaning lady. Not to fear, the bright orange bag “stuck out like a sore thumb” in the Fresh Kills Landfill!
I couldn’t have said it better.

Okay this one I like.
And now, drum roll, please……………
10. Saved the Most Money
Her wig was salvaged from the garbage dump on October 29, after a neighbor mistakenly trashed it thinking the orange bag left on his door with a “rat” inside was a Holiday prank. Thanks to the easily identifiable and sturdy GM bag, the shaitel was in mint condition.
There are no words…
These weren’t even the winners. They announced the winners the following week, but I didn’t think they were as good. I think in this case, it really is an honor to be mentioned.
