Memorable Wastes

An episode of Inspector Lewis we saw on disk yesterday, “Your Sudden Death Question,” written by Alan Plater, features a quiz in which one of the questions is: “What is the connection between The Wasteland and Waste?” The answer was: “The Wasteland was written by T.S. Eliot—the letters of whose name may be formed into the word ‘toilets.’” That sort of thing is appreciated by someone like me, once known as the Nation’s Garbage Man.

  1. No, no, as I recall, yours was the more professional title: most called you the Nation's Garbalogist.
