Weird indeed. We have a mungo who drives through our neighborhood every garbage day.
I never knew there was a word for dumpster divers! Interesting!!
We have a number of place names in Australia that use Mungo. My grandad used to go on fishing trips to a place called Mungo Brush. There's also a Lake Mungo that had some famous fossils I think. Never heard of a dumpster diving use for it- I thought they were called freegans. Nihilarian, sounds a bit made up from nihilist.
Wow - two very interesting words. A mungo is something I see once and a while but I didn't know there was a name for them.
