The Partiologist: Trash Cookies!

Trash Cookies!

Most of the time when I talk about trash cookies, I think of cookies that don't turn out and should end up in the trash.  (Usually, they end up in my belly).  This time I'm hoping the cookies look like something you would find in the trash.  Yep, I made trash cookies... on purpose!

Trash Cookies
 
And let me tell you why.

Today, my hubby is taking his employees out for lunch to celebrate one of their birthdays.  Yes, we have a small garbage company, he's a Garbologist and I'm The Partiologist.  Obviously, we were meant to be.  So he asked me to make some cookies (he doesn't ask often).  So I decided to make trash cookies for the celebration.  What little boy or grown man wouldn't want to eat cookies that looked like this?  I just hope they know what they are, and I'm wondering if you know?
 
My plan was to have them presented in a mini galvanized garbage pail.  Only they would really look like trash if I stacked them on top of one another.  I decided to place them on a trash bag in my cookie box.
Who would have thought that making trash cookies would be so complicated.
Can YOU figure them out?  If not this is what they are:
Leftover Pizza
Old Newspaper
Spring Cleanup Tree Branches
Notebook Paper
Nails in Wood
Starbucks Cup
Torn Whole Foods Bag
Milk Carton
Pretzel Bag
Tire
Sod
Hershey's Wrapper
 
Now that I made trash cookies, I needed someplace to dump them. 
And I needed a Birthday Cake.
A Landfill Cake~
Because I was tired from making all the trash cookies, I just wanted to finish and clean up my mess.  So I baked and frosted a mound shaped cake and filled the landfill up with all kinds of trash.
Broken cookies, tin foil, wax paper, cupcake wrappers, coffee filters, all kinds of food safe trash.
 
Happy Birthday Jerry!
 
I hope you have a Trashy Day!
