This is a PM version of a person I know personally, but he doesn't do this job anymore so I can't show you the big person version. Trust me, it looks exactly like him. Yes their bicycle is blue.

Time to give this great topic a bump!
I have been meaning to share these pictures for ages:

First, a stick one of my children found in Cirencester Park made me think of this:



Here is the stick (I think it was Ivy when alive)...



...and with a clear plastic ball it looks quite like the PM version!




Here is the second one, the 'real life' version first, a piece of equipment dumped on a farm in Wishanger:



and here is the PM version...it's a bowser, to carry water, or slurry (liquid fertilizer derived from manure):



I looked up the word bowser and discovered it comes from the inventor, Sylvanus Freelove Bowser.
 

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

I've never heard it called a Bowser - I've always heard it called the rather more descriptive 'Muck Spreader'  :lol:
