  1. This is called Paail bucket. heavier when empty, so imagine when you fill it up with water and then mistakenly lands it on your little toe. Least I forget, the base is almost as sharp as a blunt knife. Tufiakwa.

    1. This bucket is why I have not grown past the average door handle. I am already adjusting my neck cos I feel It on my head. This pail is the number one cause of general dwarfism in children and neck dwarfism (those people that don't have neck and their head is directly on the shoulder as if they used hammer to knack the head and the neck disappeared inside the chest?)
