Yum, garbage.

Reuters Odd News Summary: "''Freegans'' forage for food in bins
LONDON (Reuters) - Ross and Ash are about to dig in to a meal of chicken rogan josh, king prawn makhani and rice, chicken balti and naan bread followed by pineapple, strawberries and grapes for dessert.
All of which came out of a bin.
''Everything I eat comes from dumpsters,'' Ash says. ''For me it's a logical lifestyle choice. It's such a natural thing to use up that waste.''
Some call them ''dumpster divers,'' others brand them ''skip lickers,'' but Ross Parry and Ash Falkingham like to count themselves among the Freegans -- a growing band of foragers who seek to live entirely from the waste of others.
In this brief trip to a small supermarket skip in southeast London, they have recovered enough food to provide themselves -- and several others -- with an impressive evening meal, as well as bread, muffins and teabags for the next morning's breakfast."
