Bag Of Expired Stolen Muffins
"The muffins in this photo, then, do not come from the shelf in a supermarket; rather, they were found in and taken from a dumpster. But, no, they were not simply “found” in a dumpster. A man stole them in the Belgian city Rupelmonde, or so the Belgian court, the “Rechtbank Dendermonde” has argued".
Emotion Number Two
This photo not only is a credible source but stimulates again emotion of anger towards the law against "Dumpster Diving".
