Boy George Is Trashed!

8/14/2006 1:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Clad in a bright orange vest and designer footwear, Boy George wheeled a city-issued trashbin through the streets of New York Monday morning, in a highly publicized effort to repay his debt to society.

Dozens of onlookers stopped dead in their tracks as the former Culture Club frontman scooped up leaves and trash from sidewalks. But while the '80s icon, who sang "Karma Chameleon" and "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?", dragged his body through heaps of garbage, his mind was still in the gutter. TMZ caught George smiling and shaking his butt, as he jokingly proclaimed, "I'm going to go have sex with the guard!"

The singer, born George O'Dowd, was ordered to spend five days working for the Department of Sanitation after pleading guilty in March to falsely reporting a burglary at his lower Manhattan apartment. When officers responded, rather than a burglar, they found cocaine instead.

But wait, there's more....

After completing his waste management duties for the day, George remained laughing and playful (probably due to the fact that a documentary film crew he is working with was still following him around). The singer can also be heard firing off a quick verbal retaliation to a heckler, who was then overjoyed by the fact he was zinged by New York's most famous trash man.

I feel bad for Boy George because he has a serious addiction to heroin and seems to keep bouncing in and out of recovery. I hope he gets clean before he becomes dead.

They are not going to get much work done, if the photographers are going to stand in the way of duty.

I do not understand why they had to publish exactly where and how he was going to do his time. The sentence is OK - he did a commit a crime, but it should be possible to work undisturbed even for a public person like him.

I still love ya George, even though you were rude when we met at BBar (I think you were pretty out of it -- in your defense).

If it helps -- George Michael is a bigger mess than you'll even be.

It was not immediatly clear weather or not the Sewer Rat would press charges.

Due to the nature of this type of work it becomes clear that safy is 1st.

Everyday befor these "scavangers" are released there is a safty Meeting . Typical topics include, haz mat "IE". Needles, condoms, or other bodily wast removal methods"
One of TMZ reporters over heard a breafing: Follows are the contents.

Alright guys lets go, be safe out there today. Be on the look out for MK OLSEN, she has been known to friquent this area. She is typically looking for some scraps of food, BUT can become dangerouse if cornered. If you find her sniffing around a dumpster looking for food, just give her some space.. She will leave after feeding on old discarded pizzza crust and rotten apples...

Dont ty to touch her, because we are not sure weather or not she is rabid. Alright, keep your eyes open out there gentelmen.

George is a great person. He is doing his duty and all of you who think that you are better than to clean your own alley or back yard are asses! He is very humbled buy this and just wants to do his time. For all of you who laugh at this, it is sad, because anyone who has more time on there hands to laugh and say bad things about someone they do not like needs a life. go look at something that you enjoy rather than shove insults into a bad experiance for someone else. George is a great singer and DJ and will bounce back from this experiance. Those who like to throw stones are the dirt George needs to clean up, so get on the street corners boys and girls if it means so much to you, he has three more days. I am sure he could fill a land fill of you asses. I love you George as does so many others, Big Love, Eden

At one point when diggin through the garbage dumpster,
"Gay George" saw what appeared to be the skeletal remains of some type of primate. At which time he immediatly alerted the guard.

Upon further inspection the "remains" turned out to be non other than MK OLSEN.. This seemed to startle "skeletor" at which point she HISSED at "Gay George" and then shuffled off into the undergrowth.
