Dear Hefty Ultra Flex Trash Bags,

I’m guessing you don’t get a lot of fan mail, but I really like your trash bags. They rock!

My only complaint is dogs, raccoons, children, and other varmints. Seems nearly every week one of these creatures gets into my bags and I have trash strewn everywhere. I throw things away for a reason. I don’t want people being able to go through the things I trash. This is just creepy. It’s not that I am an intensely private person, I just have a lot of things to hide.

Anyway, I thought you should consider coming out with a bag that tastes horrible to discourage animals from biting through the plastic. I would have thought plastic would be yucky enough, but apparently not. PETA would probably get upset, but you could even make the bags poisonous. Killing feral animals seems like reasonable and responsible to me.

I’m going to be altruistic on this one, give this idea away for free. Go ahead and use it if you like it. The world will be a better place.

Sincerely,

Christopher L. Jorgensen
