honey bucket
 n.— «The Russians even installed a trash airlock for the regular disposal of food containers, dirty clothing, small items of failed equipment, and sealed fecal filters from their space toilet. When military trackers at the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, detected new subsatellites drifting away from Soviet space stations, they would catalog the blips and humorously refer to them as “honey buckets” (an old, old euphemism, most recently an aviation term for the spartan latrine in the back end of an aircraft).» —“Space Junk Problem Rising To New Heights” by Intellpuke Free Internet Press Nov. 20, 2006.
