A Watsonia North father claims he’s extra proud of his toddler son for filling a dirty nappy just before this morning’s red bin collection. Tony Vallance said toddler son Hamish’s late-night poop proved very advantageous for his ongoing struggle to manage the local council’s new bin collection scheme.

Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle, Vallance revealed that, “It was just perfect timing, I mean, normally a late-night poop is a bit of a nightmare to deal with, but last night it was just what the doctor ordered! The adjustment to the new bin system has had a few teething problems to say the least, haha, so whenever you get a little free kick like this you embrace it.”

Interestingly, Vallance’s main reason for rejoicing wasn’t purely scent management. He said, “Contrary to popular opinion, it’s not just about the worsening smell over the next fortnight, sometimes it’s just good to save that extra space for the next collection. Hamish will be getting extra treats this weekend to reward his good behaviour.”
