People are now dressing up to celebrate taking the rubbish bins out every week

We’ve all heard of cabin fever, so let’s not beat around the bloody bush. By this stage of lockdown, some people are starting to really long for the outside world. They’re used to dressing up, going out, seeing people and celebrating their freedom. And, although, that s**t’s off the schedule for now, the best among us will look for any port in a storm. And that means that Bin-Day has become an opportunity to make the most of momentary freedom.

Deadset, even if you’re not yet at the stage where thoughts of the outside world are coming like mirages in a f**ken desert, you’d be familiar with stories where people snatch any glimpses of freedom they can.

And that’s where the Facebook Group, Bin Isolation Outing comes into play. As they put it on their About page, “Basically, the bin goes out more than us SO let’s dress up for the occasion! Fancy dress, makeup, tutu ….be creative! Post photos to cheer us up. After all, laughter is the best medicine!”

And people from all over the world have rallied to get in on the act. Deadset, there are bloody heaps of photos on there, and we can’t do ‘em all justice with one little blog post. There are almost 700,000 members of the group, and the costumes range from simple to pretty f**ken awesome.

You’ve got Batman, The Little Mermaid, f**ken Michael Myers, Wonder Woman, Bin Kong, and bloody Dad in his dick-togs. As you can imagine, people are having a tonne of fun with it, and the whole thing’s providing some much-needed levity to everyone’s lockdown.
