So I went to Cabin John Park in Rockville.
In the park was this Baconator machine.
It is a pig for collecting garbage (and not being a pig and trashing the park).
When you press the bottom on the upper right, the pig tells you what to put inside--paper, cardboard, and soft drink cans, but not bottles or broken glass.
The kids seemed really curious about it, but also were sort of scared of it--especially when it says, "I'm hungry, hungry, hungry!"
The Baconator will eat your refuse, but then who would want to eat the Baconator?
Plus as my niece used to say when she was very little, "Piggy isn't kosher!" ;-)
