Clearly it means that the garbage collector thought it could throw
something out, put it in the trash, and then realized later that it
really needed it, so it reached in, pulled it back out, and then tried
to flatten it out and wipe off the bits of food which went in on top
of it.

Hasn't this ever happened to you? :-)
