Innovation of the Year Award

"Southern rock songs are just like southern yards, covered with crap. But we southerners, even displaced northerner southerners like myself, love having piles of useless crap in our yards. We also love southern rock, but we do appreciate those rare occasions when one of our neighbors puts some air in his trailer tires and takes a load of crap to the dump." - Dave Renfro
This may look like a broken down truck but actually it is a combination dumpster/mailbox.
It is mostly white and represents an excellent form of recycling and multi-tasking. Some folks wrongly think that their military service and the military service of their forefathers entitles them to buy a piece of land and live on it, storing what they like, as they please .... freedom.
Them rednecks can't even spell free-dumb ..... freed'em is only for slaves. Everybody else is supposed to live in a standard normal place that looks something like Homer Simpson's neighborhood. American's are not supposed to have to look at stuff they don't understand, like a yard full of old bulldozers or who-knows-what-else somebody might leave laying around.
The main purpose of "fighting for one's country" is to gain an appreciation for things like chain-of-command and orderliness.
Although the dumpster/mailbox wins the Rod's Duck Farm Innovation of the Year Award, I'm sure it is not up to normal standards. It will have to go. Probably there is some kind of constitutional issue, like the separation of Mailbox and Dumpster.
Did the unit evolve, or was it created? Perhaps if the creator will provide an affidavit and testify that the Mailbox Dumpster simply evolved, the Household Input/Output System can remain.

More Stuff

At first glance this is reminescent of white space. One thinks windows.... Windows 98?
Why not Vista or something?
But it is so much more than windows. There are hinges, handles, glass, fasteners to affix the handles and hinges, glazing pins to hold the glass in the frames ..... things get so complicated so quickly. How much is too much? Throw out the glazing pins or the wood screws?
Wow!!!! There's no window latch(es). Probably should have just left the wall alone .... simple white space with no hole, no window.
Quack, Quack!
