This one from WALL-E, one of my favorite movies, ever.
You know I recently turned down a freelance job writing a kids' book about garbage? Well, I'm still temped to reverse that decision because I could actually base it on this movie about a brave little trash compactor, carrying on in an Earth buried in garbage.
(WALL-E stands for "Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class".)
The movie came up with fellow thrift-store workers yesterday (like The Full Monty, post below)---not surprisingly:
Wall-E is a Thrift Herder and Thing Finder par excellence, and the movie includes a million little details to make Thing-Lovers squeal.
Wall-E saves junk that attract him. Here, he tries to categorize a plastic utensil. Spoon? Fork?
He ends up placing it in the middle.
