What else do you expect when sleeping in dumpsters?

The man was apparently in a trash bin and was emptied into the truck along with the garbage.

Note to self...The Super-8 isn't the Taj Mahal, but it beats a dumpster hands down.

Firefighters Rescue Man From Garbage Truck

Hey, the firefighters should be fightin' fires, right? This should have been handled by Evacuation Squad folks or somethin'.

Damn, I didn't think they would find Al Sharpton so fast, now I have to capture him again and hide him somewhere else.

Something similar to this happened in Russia several months back. A drunk guy fell asleep in a dumpster after drinking at a bar all night. Trash truck comes, scoops him up and goes on it's merry way. He wakes up when it starts compacting him. He calls the cops on his cell phone but they think it's a prank call. The guy was found dead in the trash. Amusing.

Went through 2 cycles, if he got to rinse and spin dry, he would been in better shape.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Trutles!!
what was the name of that guy anyway that got crushed?
2002-07-15 01:45:40 PM reportedly in good condition.

How good can his condition be after sleeping in a dumpster and getting the 2X compactor treatment?

The guy was Shredder

That was the first thing that popped into my mind upon reading the headline

They should send him a bill. A lot of people will pay good money for a decent compaction. Why should he get two of them for free?
2002-07-15 02:22:29 PM  
next Xtreme sport?!?!??
2002-07-15 02:48:35 PM  
On a brighter note....he suddenly knows how to play the accordian.

You know...what I wanna know we make trash compactors so BAD that even after two cycles, this guy isn't dog food? What gives?
2002-07-15 02:59:13 PM  
Don't knock it til you've tried it.

"Victim Dumped From Trash Bin"
Everybody's a "victim"!
The guy was in a dumpster for Christ's sake! Should garbagemen have to check dumpsters for people now?
