The Bird's the word and also "NO" is the word.

They missed my street on their route again this week! It's a cul de sac that's kind of hard to get in and out of, but that's no excuse. Lately, even when they come they make a hash of it and I find garbage strewn all over the place. Last time they did that, I was throwing away a bag of cat litter. It broke open and spilled, and I came home to find every cat in the neighborhood had taken a dump on my lawn.

This is done so you remember them come labor negotiation time.

Besides, they've left you w/the powerfully pungent memory of a horde of feline friends.

And after all, I don't believe I have to remind you of the value of memories...

You're pretty unlucky there Vilos, my Trashmen always do their job

Remember, if you can control the air supply, you can limit it to your advantage. You'll have power over all of it... including kitty litter & it's known after-effects.

This has to be in my personal Top 5 Funniest Posts I've seen on here.

Since there seems to be a lot of uncalled for hyperbole on this site recently (like for example, "Falco is the most underrated musician ever," "Metallica sucks," "Right Said Fred is the worst band of all time") I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and make a truthful comment of my own:

I don't care what anyone says, the Trashmen are the Greatest Band of All Time, even if they aren't!!!

Posted by Tahvo Parvianen on Friday, 10.21.11 @ 11:45am


Has anyone here actually heard anything by these guys besides Surfin' Bird? The Trashmen were (and still are) a halfway decent surf/rock and roll band who don't deserve the sarcastic bashing. Should've been in the Hall long before any metal, prog, or pop acts.

"halfway decent surf/rock and roll band"

halls meant for celebrating greatness, not the average. You honestly gonna tell me the Trashmen had more impact on music than Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd or Madonna?
