Odd Shot Jug


In Norway it is prohibited by law to smoke in restaurants and other indoor, public areas - including work. This makes the freezing, smoke-addicted people smoke outdoor. So outside a number of buildings you will find a variable amount of people (mostly women it seems to me), huddling around some trash-can or other.

But I have never seen a jug like this.


Please visit Katney's Kaboodle for more about Odd shots!

And it doesn't look like anyone's bothering to empty it at the end of the day!

My Odd Shot is about Plastic, metal, wood.

Does anyone ever empty it. I used to smoke but glad to say no anymore. Nver see a jug as an ashtray before. Oudoor smokers are become very creative.

Huff,ikke noe pent syn med alle de sneipene.Men så lenge de er i krukka og ikke ligger og flyter overalt,går det enda an.Bra bilde uansett.

Icky... yeh, same rules apply to Canada as well, thank goodness! I wish it applied as well to apartment buildings, I can smell it when I open my windows...
Neat shot...

this looks funny, but at least you obey the rules. in greece, it is said that from next year, no one will be allowed to smoke indoors in public places, but i really really doubt that it will be enforced. you will see that on your next visit to crete...

It would be quite picturesque if not for the butts.

That is odd indeed! And yes, when I was in Bergen I noticed more women smoking (including me... hihihi) than men!!!

JC said...

At least it's getting used, lol... better than seeing them all over the sidewalk and parking lot. Those women should stick a few plastic flowers in there ;-)

Great catch. It seems a pitiful purpose for what was once an otherwise beautiful vessel.

We have the same smoke-outdoors rules here. But I've never seen such an interesting looking vessel for the butts!

Jeg er glad vi er kvitt de der her i huset. Dette er virkelig et odd shot.

Ann said...

Great idea for the Odd Shot, I suppose better in the jug, than all over the pavement. Great Shot.

Kult bilde, men også litt skremmende. Finanskrisen går opp i røyk :o)

California law also prohibits smoking inside buildings so workers stand outside in the rain and cold to smoke. We have standard looking ash bins, but the one in your photo is quite unusual and too nice for butts.

Does anyone empty this jug? Other than the butts in it, it should be put to a better use...decorating someone's yard.

Is one marvellous post, topical and in Greece, that unfortunately possesses one from the first places in world scale in smokers!
