A good keg bucket is hard to find

After an unfortunate incident involving a dead squirrel, I threw away my keg bucket. Now I need a new one for St. Patrick's Day. I checked Home Depot, Target, and Bed Bath and Beyond, all for naught (on the bright side, the experience did give me reason to use the phrase "all for naught"). Anyone know where I could purchase one? Big round plastic tub, about two feet high, two rope handles on the sides, and usually made of a brightly colored plastic.

Don't let me down, internet.

Even better! Thanks, Neal. I can swing by and pick it up, if you feel weird about hauling it on the T or in a cab.

Damn, I have one, too. I was going to make Amanda or Liz wear it on their heads on the plane!

i donʻt have one but check out the comments of these policemen on a recent case in GA:

Heʻs not retarded though, heʻs just "not too bright" -- if that doesnʻt sound like Georgia, I donʻt know what does...

excerpt:
George David Edenfield, a mentally slow 32-year-old man who lived with his parents across the street from the boy's grandmother, was arrested and charged with violating his probation from a 1997 child molestation conviction, which prohibits him from contact with children. Police said he admitted playing a role in Christopher's disappearance, but they would not be more specific.

Neighbors say the Edenfields moved into the mobile home park less than a year ago. Word soon spread that one of them was a convicted child molester, a rumor neighbors easily confirmed via Georgia's online sex offender registry.

Many kept their distance from the Edenfields' ramshackle trailer, with filled trash bags and aluminum cans piled under the rickety porch.

Neighbors said the man sometimes behaved like a child. Doering, the police chief, said the man is not mentally retarded - "he's just not too bright" and sometimes responded to questions like a 5-year-old.

Wal-mart sells the keg buckets, for future reference.
