Overnight Open Thread - Spring Cleaning Edition

Happy Thursday M&Ms.

Filthy Apartments AKA The Moron Habitat

I once had to go pick up some furniture from a self-described 'collector' lady. It was horrible - as bad as any of these photos. The really sad part was that she was married and her husband and son had to live in the filth as well. And if you've ever watched the show Hoarders, you'll realize how horrible it can get. It really is a mental illness for some people.

So...maybe you oughta clean up a little this weekend. At least try and get all the fast food wrappers and empty bottles into just one room. Baby steps...that's the key. Next week we'll try and uncover the toilet.
