Irish comedian Alison Spittle has perfectly demonstrated how to deal with a litterbug

Bike baskets are *not* bins.

She’s a very funny stand-up comedian, a podcast host, a wonderful storyteller (please read her epic water aerobics story) and, as it happens, a kickass litter vigilante.

Yesterday Alison parked her bicycle on Wexford Street, Dublin, when she noticed a lad pop his coffee cup in her bike basket and chuckle with his mate. Ha, ha, ha, aren’t lads gas?

Instead of leaving him away with it, however, Alison decided to pull the ultimate “I think you forgot something?” move: she followed him into Bunsen and placed the coffee cup on his table.


Spittle said afterwards that the litterbug seemed “wounded” and “comically sheepish”.
