I guess low flush volume toilets haven’t hit Scotland yet. I cannot get a q-tip go down.

Someone must have told Pooh that this was the way to the “honey wagon”.

The headline had me thinking that my brother in law had been in Scotland. He’s blocked my plumbing twice.

“The headline had me thinking that my brother in law had been in Scotland. He’s blocked my plumbing twice.

I was thinking the same thing. Not about your b-i-law
but about the title and some large poo.

We call them baby shark, the ones too big to flush.

When my girls were little I had to call Roto Rooter for a sewer backup. Imagine my shock when they hauled a Barbie Doll out of my waste line.

Pinned the kids down and the answer was “we were playing Titanic.” Still no idea how they got it to flush.

Sometimes it’s just best to go with the flow and not strain over the details. ;-)

I was a kid in the Bronx in the 50’s...I had an aunt and uncle who were snowbirds...I recall a few times they came home with a baby gator for me...really sharp teeth they had..and yup, they went down the toilet after a few days..every time..

welll..those were probably Caimens (cent./south Amer.)
(iirc :) American Alligator, may have been protected @ the time.
there's really no difference, but size..the teeth is another matter.

At some point doesn’t that stuff become crap anyway?

Seems the sewer works and companies aren’t doing their job.

I can’t tell you how many crap things I’ve thrown away.

Smart Phones, computers that BSOD , Old stuff girlfriends gave me, ABC gum, etc.

The only problem I see here is they should have flushed these things a couple times to break em up into smaller chunks
