ABC WEDNESDAY--"K" is for "Ka-boom!"


Well, probably not a very loud "Ka-boom" from this little Yugoslav Army tank dated 1934.  Probably not enough oomph to send a cannonball to the archaic waste basket nearby.  If you live in Europe and are of a certain age, ahem, you may remember these litter baskets. You'd toss trash in them and the cleaning person would come around, lift up the basket, then sweep the trash into a little shovel and then into a big bin and move on.

See other Ks on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.

An unusual setting for a small cannon.

The little green basket is far less intimidating than the Army equipment.

Very unusual positioning of the cannon and the trash bin.
Great photo and I think you are right...not much of a Ka-boom.

Ka-boom, Now there's a word to stir the imagination!
Sounds like a word that would b used in a boy's comic,
Cute little cannon!

Oh, Lord, I hate things that go "ka-boom," but that trash basket is so cool! Certainly more useful than the war-making cannon, anyway, in my book! Amy

Funny type of trash "can"! And the "cannon" is even funnier. Ka-bim?
