Thomas's parents, Reginald and Jeanette (nee Trashcan) had him christened Thomas Atkins Gunn Titt Bin at his baptism.

Actually, since Sir Reginald was from the valleys, the item should be referred to as 'Thomas the Bin'

Listener - Let me understand this. You join Arrse on 29 April 2006, you mooch about for a fortnight then in your very first post you ask about a the derivation of the name for a Thomas Bin. Are you OK, or is this really a cry for help? A scream of despair from the slough of despond? One last gut-churning wail of human passion from the slippery drain to hell? An angry challenge metamorphosed by the sludge of unattainable dreams of life into a slow whisper exhaled from the mouth of a cadaver? Or do you have a thing about Thomas Bins?

I've been through Slough, and it's enough to lead you to despond. Be gentle with him.

Quite correct cloudbuster, and my apologies for omitting Sir Reginald's (and Lady Bin's) title. Come to think of it, wasn't Sir Reginald conferred with the title of Baronet? If so would that now make Thomas, Sir Thomas Bin Bart.

Anyone know why the Thomas Bin is called so?
It's not called 'so', it's called Thomas Bin. Do keep up.

Indeed it would Tuna Head, indeed it would.

You having a quiet day, too?

Quiet Day? Yep. Such is the life of a Tuna head in this neck of the woods. On a more serious note, for Listener, and taking to heart cloudbuster's advice to treat you gently, here is the answer:

Not that I'm aware of, although he did have a reputation as a 'ladies man' in his youth, hence the large number of 'bin lids' about the land.

"Deputy Director Supply and Transport, British Increment, US 5 Army, Italy, Adapted aluminium storage box in use with US forces as a storage medium for RASC."

Nope, perhaps nothing out of the ordinary, but there you go, that's whay its called a Thomas bin.
 
#20
I knew it was not this one........................... named after Ianto Thomas, the worst outside half ever to emerge from the valleys. It gave rise to the expression "Bin Thomas", aften shouted from the touchlines. Once binned by his team, Thomas invested all his considerable energy into developing a cheap, robust and simple container for stowing sheep, their constituent parts and by-products and a selection of sheep-inspired exotica. The product was enhanced following Ianto's marriage to Fatima, a Saudi dissident and refugee. It was she who invented the liner to fit in the Thomas Bin. The final evolution of the product was its use as a constituent part in IEDs, undertaken by Ianto and Fatima's son Osama. As a result, there is a world-wide knowledge of, and desire to apprehend, any Osama Bin Liners............
