Real Life Barrel Incident

Been meaning to post this picture for a while. It’s a spot I pass on my work every day, with three barrels (one’s tucked around the corner behind the fence, a Pizza sign, and a large dumpster. You know what I’m thinking when I see it, right? Of course you do!

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I turned down the lane only to find out that someone had tipped one of the barrels over. The liquid that had spread out down the lane was thick, sticky, and the colour of the skagg bile that some of the BL2 critters hurk up on you. The smell was… Well, imagine half-digested and fermented stilton cheese mixed with year-old bacon fat, and you kind of get the idea. (Now I know where the inspiration for the pizza in that TMNT side quest came from!)

It took a truck load of sand, a street cleaner, and two heavy downpours before the lane didn’t stink anymore. They missed an area on the side, though. That patch that looks like paint? It’s not paint. And it’s been there through another 3 or 4 heavy rainstorms!
