Who's bin up to all this?

Worcester News: RIDE WHEELIE RIDE: A bin riding a moped RIDE WHEELIE RIDE: A bin riding a moped

WHERE’S your bin been? That’s something that residents of a Warndon estate are regularly asking each other since the new bin stacking craze hit them.

So far bins belonging to people in Rodborough Close have been on trips out to Worcester races and HMP Hewell, as well as being given a treatment in a hot tub and run over by a moped.

And the joke doesn’t look like it’s ending any time soon.

It all started when Hailey Martin’s bin went missing and she posted a status on facebook looking for it.

“My bin went missing for three days. Then this all started and everyone got involved,” she said.

Since the long-running joke began, the people who live around a green in the close have been receiving picture and status updates via a facebook group, Rodborough... The Close That Never Sleeps!, about what their missing bins have been up to.

Miss Martin’s bin has been to the prison, out for a day with police, to a bus stop, bought a ticket at Bromsgrove train station and visiting her sister Sarah nearby.

Sheron Vernon’s bin has been on a few different activities being caught out playing swing ball, soaking in a hot tub, visiting her nearby grandchildren, and even getting its own motorbike compulsory basic training certificate to ride motorcycles, scooters and mopeds up to 125cc.

The most recent debacle happened yesterday when victims Miss Martin, Ms Vernon, Stacey Martin, and Tara Probert woke to find their bins congregated in the middle of the green taped together. There were both rubbish and recycling bins, some up standing and another taped on top.

The culprit? They are blaming Darren Collins and have nicknamed him Bin Man.

The neighbours have taken out revenge by etching “Bin Man” on to Mr Collins’ moped, which he used to run over a bin and record it before uploading it to the facebook page. They also plan to cover his windows in bin bags.

But since the first bit of payback, Mr Collins has said the bins will now suffer more and has threatened to paint Miss Probert’s bin bright pink.

Let’s hope no bins get hurt in the making of more pranks.

Am I alone in finding the banal, childish actions of a very small group of people not in any way newsworthy?

Quite probably I am. The zeitgeist continues to elude me. Down vote away, I can take it. I'll leave your gate slightly ajar, be on the front page by next week.

I know that what is essentially vandalism should be discouraged, but honestly, this story has really made me laugh. There's some thought and imagination gone into this. Which makes a change. Oh dear, I feel bad now for finding it amusing...

You're probably right, and I'm wrong, I'm just a bit grumpy today. My logic circuits have always struggled to process "banter" and "larks".

Is there actually a cat in it? Because although that is also very, very wrong, also a tiny bit amusing... ;-)

"Gema bate clearly has no knowledge of worcestershire" (bate should have a capital B - Bate, Capital W required for Worcestershire)

"To me knowledge hmp hewell is no where evesham it is in redditch" (As far as I'm aware......., hmp should be capitals HMP, hewell should be Hewell, no where - nowhere (no space) 'near' missing, capital - Evesham, capital - Redditch)

I have considered tossing a few cats in my bin.
They little bggers crap everywhere. I know cat owners will tell you what lovely clean animals they are and how they bury their poos, but near me they don't bother.
I've considered getting a bullmastiff, but my garden is quite small.. Might get an airgun though?

About somes up this newspaper - a load of rubbish!

Just received the Worcester Journal through the door (which uses stories from WN). Apparently this story is worthy of a full page spread on the front page of "The worlds oldest newspaper".

Plenty of other front page worthy stories yet this was chosen presumably by someone calling themself a journalist? A primary school child probably has a better grasp of what front page news is than the editor of this rag.

Waste of ink and paper - either pack up or put up WN.
