Garbage Treasures: Now with extra Chester A. Arthur!

As you may recall, Deeky collects and saves useless garbage like we're beyond Thunderdome and useless garbage is now a form of currency and he's a garbageaire. Then, instead of throwing it away, he throws pieces of his fancy detritus collection into an envelope and pays money to ship it to me, at which point I put them in plastic treasure chests and put them out by the curb every week to be collected by the "treasure man," who buries them at the "treasure dump" for me for safe keeping.

But not before taking a picture of the bounty so that I can post it, natch.

Counter-clockwise from top left: An ad for $30/month of unlimited yoga at Charm City Yoga; three b-movie trading cards for Robots on the Run, Earthmen Land on Mars, and Lord of the Fleas, obviously; a giant magnet of Chester A. Arthur; and a burned DVD copy of the 1986 horror classic Trick or Treat, starring Marc "Skippy Handelman" Price.

There were also some Flula stickers, but I already stuck 'em on stuff.
