Trashy Holidays from [the rats of] New York City!

This year, my household's holiday card will celebrate ("celebrate") one of New York City's most iconic images:

Cartoon-style holiday greeting card. A rat heads toward the feast of trash that's overflowing from a trash can. At the center of the overflowed trash is a slice of pepperoni pizza. The trash can has been decorated with a string of multicolored holiday lights. The greeting is: Trashy Holidays from New York City!

The back of the card explains why this problem is so commonplace on NYC's streets and says how we could fix it:

Piles of trash blocking sidewalks and bike lanes are as iconic a part of New York City as the Brooklyn Bridge and the subway, but it doesn't have to be this way. Sealed waste containers could replace a couple street parking spots on every block to ensure trash stays where it belongs - in the bin!

I've made two versions of this card that you can print on a standard 8.5" by 11" letter piece of paper and fold into quarters:
