It’s been a greasy month but it’s over – after three weeks of photo submissions and one week of voting, The Greasy Outdoors contest has a winner!
The winning photo was sent by Tina T (pictured above, Dumpster Tanner) and her greasy “Usual Suspects“: John “Johnny Bags” (Dumpster Diver); Chase (Dumpster King); Wade (Dumpster Feaster), and photographer Jeff.
For Tina, using a dumpster wasn’t just a greasy idea for a photo contest, it was a throw back to a few fucked up memories from her childhood.
“My mom was the Dumpster Queen,” recalls Tina. “She’s Mexican-Irish, so she thinks finding a good dumpster haul is thrifty and smart, not trash diving. If my mom gives you something and doesn’t tell you where she got it… it was from the dumpster. She’ll say that she ‘found it’, but we all know.”
Tina’s mom provided some fucking fantastic inspiration because the dumpster photo crushed the competition — nearly 400 other photos were vying to be the greasiest of them all. But it didn’t come without challenges.
“I scouted all of Burbank, CA to find an open dumpster where no one would bug us,” says Tina. “Did you know most people lock their fucking trash AND they have mall dicks guarding it? Luckily, I found a sweet spot and the security guard came over just as we were cleaning up. We got the fuck out of there before he got to us!”
Tina is taking home a DECENT prize pack of SwearNet swag, and she already has plans to celebrate.
“You know I’m gonna have a SwearNet/TPB party for my Usual Suspects,” says Tina. “I’ll cook for them in my Dirty Burger apron (and nothing else), change into my Green Bastard shirt for the party and wear the fuck out of the SwearNet hat–and I don’t usually wear hats over this big curly hair, but that fucker is awesome!”
She’ll also get a free one-year subscription to SwearNet, and she’s pretty fuckin’ excited about that, too.
“I love so many SwearNet shows! Not kissing ass here, how would that help me now? The Trailer Park Boys Podcast is the best around. Period. And I’m a podcast whore, so I know. Also, I’m cuckoo-bananas for The Jim Lahey Show with Randy, Gettin’ Learnt and Guitar Lessons with Bubbles. The OWC guys are a fucking delight, as well.”
Congrats to Tina, you fucking earned it! And many thanks to the many fuckers who sent in their fucking photos. Fuckin’ DECENT!
