“What a catch”: Dumpster fished out of the water at Alki

Thanks to WSB Forums member HMC Rich for sending the photos, one of which he headlined “What a catch.” There’s probably also a joke in here about “dumpster diving” – in this case, the dumpster itself apparently did the diving. We don’t know HOW it wound up in the water at Alki, but there it was – right off the heart of the boardwalk near 62nd/Alki – requiring expert intervention:

Rich says, “Seattle Parks and Ken’s Towing fished it out.”

    I’m sure there’s a couple kids around here who know how it got in there. :)

    Sure this isn’t for a Waste Management commercial?

    I guess all that trash floating around out there needed somewhere to go… ;)

    Wait, I’d like to rescind my previous joke and replace it with: “So thaaaat’s where the whales have been eating…”

    Apparently Waste Management is serious about their strike.

    I’ve seen them on construction barges before. Wonder if it fell off one of those.

Sorry, comment time is over.
