The Garbageman Scene


Did anyone ever notice the rainbow patch sewn onto garbageman Joe's coveralls? I've never heard anyone discuss this.

While I don't necessarily think it's a pride rainbow I've always thought it alluded to Joe's esoteric, liberal leanings (ie: crystals, motviational speakers, laying on of hands etc...).

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

I also always directly linked it to his liberal attitude in general which simply also includes the sexual orientation of an individual.

I guess it was glued to show his eccentric behaviour.

Re: The Garbageman Scene


Maybe it was a kind of "in training" rainbow tag?

Many companies have some kind of "happy" tag, whether it's a rainbow, a star, baloons or something else to show the customers that they are new on the job, so - pretty please - give them a little break.

**edit**

Geeze... I just returned to the BURBS forums from a 1-2 year absense, and this is post 444 - which just happens to be the exact sum of my tax returns this year...

...go figure, KARMA!

I noticed while re-watching the first Terminator, one of those trash guys (the great bowler), was the guy working in the gun shop that Arnold blows away.

It's Dick Miller (RIP) and he's done a lot of movie roles in both cult and horror movies.

Gremlins, The Burbs, Terminator, Pulp fiction, Chopping mall, The Howling and the list goes on and on.
