Limerick's innovative answer to the ejaculate epidemic
It's all getting a bit messy down in Limerick City if their new bins are to be believed. The new council initiative asks people to drop what looks like 'cum'.
The city has been kitted out with special new bins, the text on which appears to read: "Cum Drop; The cum stops here!". The hole in the bin is meant to be the open mouth of a purple creature. That unfortunately would make it a literal ejaculate dumpster.
Limerick City Council has long tried to rid its streets of chewing gum, but, as far as we're aware, male ejaculate is pretty far down their list of priorities.
So, this is probably a simple case of a design error. Many a designer has fallen fowl of Gs that look like Cs before, but this is a particularly good example of how bad that can be. Someone with good eyesight and the dirty mind of most Irish lads should have taken this design into careful consideration before giving it the OK.
There is the possibility, though, that the designer knew full well what it looked like. If so, I think we can all salute that legend.
