The two like to play around a bit in the dump.

Bunton, Arkansas-In a move that was hailed by environmentalists as its first act of responsibility toward John and Neapolitan Feebleblister, two Bunton garbage men, announced that it has sent $100,000 toward buying them some new clothes and shoes and enough soap to last for twenty years.

"In a small town like this you can smell these guys from the first minute you wake up in the morning until you put on your mask at night" stated Mayor Herman Minsterwald. "For a town of 200, we do have some pretty good loads of spoiled and leftover goods to haul away and these two good ole boys do a bang-up job.

"It's just that they have been wearing those same outfits for years. Why, we can't even tell if the garbage has been picked up or not unless we look in the garbage cans. The whole town smells exactly the same.

"I told the town council we'd get that money if we slipped the right politician a handful of notes and it worked. The boys have already used the $100,000 for uniforms, are actually using the soap and have bought themselves a humdinger of a Hummer."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
