Sani dump

I watched a movie tonight. No, it wasn't Christmas Vacation, but I actually let it run through the credits.

And, there was a credit for "Honey wagon Driver".

So, the next time you are at the sani-dump, feeling miserable, keep in mind, you could become famous.

From Wiki:

In the film and television industry a honeywagon is a mobile toilet unit used in the film and television industry. The legend behind the name 'honeywagon' is thought to relate to the 'honey-colored' liquid that comes out of it when emptying the holding tanks.[citation needed] Many are the size of a semi trailer. Some honeywagons will be just two large toilets. Others are a combination of variously sized rooms for specific purposes: these rooms can be private dressing rooms assigned to a single person, larger rooms configured for the wardrobe, or makeup departments, small individual toilets for the crew to share, and multiple user or individual shower rooms for bathing.

Stay on the bright side.

Re: Sani dump

Hi: gbaglo... If you're ever left standing in it you will know it resembles the colour of "Honey",... but it sure don't smell like it!!! If you're up to your ankles in it...you'll be glad you didn't put any solids in it either!!!
Sometimes your trip "To the dump" can be a real "Honey ...can you get the manager". Alf

Re: Sani dump

I think the "honey wagon" term was pre-dated by the term "honey bucket", which was that bucket kept in the house before indoor plumbing was common. When it was too cold to make that late night trip to the outhouse, the honey bucket was used as a repository. Of course the reason it was called a "honey bucket" is obvious, the wife would usually get up in the morning and say "honey, can you take the bucket outside and dump it in the outhouse?"

cheers
Dave
