Dumpster Diving

posted by on September 13 at 10:34 AM

The Seattle Times is reporting a body was found in a dumpster on 1st and Pike just before 10am. However, according to Seattle Police Department spokesman Mark Jamieson, the fire department arrived on scene and immediately called SPD to tell them they weren’t needed. Apparently, when the fire department went in to the dumpster, the “body” woke up.

“He was no longer a body,” Jamieson said, channeling Charles Mudede.

Because sometimes you need to just stop what you're doing and take a little nap. You know, to... refresh.

Obligatory nerdism:

DEAD PERSON: I'm not dead!
CUSTOMER: Nothing. Here's your ninepence.
DEAD PERSON: I'm not dead!
CART MASTER: 'Ere. He says he's not dead!
CUSTOMER: Yes, he is.
CART MASTER: He isn't?
CUSTOMER: Well, he will be soon. He's very ill.
DEAD PERSON: I'm getting better!
CUSTOMER: No, you're not. You'll be stone dead in a moment.
CART MASTER: Oh, I can't take him like that. It's against regulations.
DEAD PERSON: I don't want to go on the cart!
CUSTOMER: Oh, don't be such a baby.
CART MASTER: I can't take him.
DEAD PERSON: I feel fine!
CUSTOMER: Well, do us a favour.
CUSTOMER: Well, can you hang around a couple of minutes? He won't be long.
CART MASTER: No, I've got to go to the Robinsons'. They've lost nine today.
CUSTOMER: Well, when's your next round?
CART MASTER: Thursday.
DEAD PERSON: I think I'll go for a walk.
CUSTOMER: You're not fooling anyone, you know. Look. Isn't there something you can do?
DEAD PERSON: [singing] I feel happy. I feel happy. [whop]
CUSTOMER: Ah, thanks very much.
CART MASTER: Not at all. See you on Thursday.

Transients frequently do that in the winter to stay warm, but who wants to get near a dumpster in the summer? Ugh.

Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that.

He was recontextualized! I was going to express my hope that if were dead, his assailant had sinisterly exclaimed, "time to take out the trash" before felling the poor man - but I'm instead just going to bask in the arcane film quote prowess of this particular group.
