"wheelie bins"

Why do the Brits feel the need to cutesy things up all the time.  They are trash cans, rubbish bins, refuse containers, whatever.  Yes, they have wheels on them.  Why is that something that needs to be remarked on?

Do we even know if this "Mary" (name changed to protect fairytale anonymity) was "proud" or is this nothing but more rabid sensationalism by the republican "right"?

The quality of the video does not help, it looks like RealVideo when we were all on dialup.

Glad none of them decided to go all the way and brown up their face.
THAT WOULD BE RACIST.

We comment on wheeled bins because they replaced unwheeled bins, and that was very exciting.

"Bathrooms." Why do the Americans feel the need to cutesy things up all the time? They are toilets, pissers, crappers, whatever.

I have a particular affection for Scotland. Any time I see a headline, my first hope is that it was nuked from orbit.

C'mon ladies, you got to shake what you mommy gave you when you dance to a song like that.

That was dumb and goofy.

And thanks for it, subby.

Yarp. It was definitely dumb and goofy.  But, it is people having fun and not bothering anyone else, so in my book that makes it awesome!

The British dustbin was originally made of metal and would contain household waste and ashes from the open fires most houses used for heating. There was no recycling because there was little to recycle. Food was bought loose and paper could be burned on the fire. A few tin cans, some food waste, ash and dust went in the bin. When wheels were added they became wheeled bins or wheelie bins. We never had "trash", just like our cars never had a "hood" or "trunk". So we'll stick with our wheelie bins and you know what you can do with your trash cans etc.

For some reason any attempt I make to go there bounces me to the YouTube home page, but searching for "Steve Agland" found it as "Bin Can Can". Many thanks!
