*Repugnant mass of congealed rotting fat and other sickening waste found

*Sewage workers have never seen the likes of the mass - as big as a bus

*It could have sent sewage surging onto the streets of south London

A lump of fat the size of a double decker bus has been discovered clogging a London sewer.
The Fatberg, described as 15 tonnes of festering food mixed with wet wipes and a host of other disgusting ephemera, was found blocking pipes under Kingston in south London.

I had no idea Michael Moore was missing.

OTOH, The comment, "The blockage was so critical it threatened to blast untreated sewage..." may explain a great many of his statements.

It makes you wonder what the hell the public works guys do all day when they’re not inspecting the sewers for years and years on end.

They said there was only 5% capacity remaining due to the blockage, where the hell were they when there was 50% capacity remaining?

Probably sitting on their duffs waiting for retirement.

Up side, I’m sure somebody from ganggreen can use it to fuel their vehicle. Hell of a grease trap. Some people never learn that you NEVER pour bacon grease down the drain. Use it for some red beans and rice.

Heck with that...bacon grease should be saved by all Americans and delivered to a central facility for military applications.

Too right!

For instance: the UK constructed dhimmified symbols of Islamic victory at the site of two Muslim atrocities. One was an enormous crescent facing Mecca and the other - most disgustingly - was a scale-model of the K’abah.

Oh no wait, my bad. That crap happened in America.

No wonder you’re projecting your insecurity and hate onto us - you can’t bear to look at your own country.

I have owned 4 houses since 1966. I have NEVER had such a problem. Regular sewer in first house—septic systems in 3 subsequent houses.

And politicians would rather spend our money on performing arts centers, museums, stadiums, or light rail than fix what needs fixing.

I also wonder if the low flush toilets contribute to sewer pipe problems (already happened in San Francisco), because there isn’t enough water to move all the gross stuff along.

It wouldn’t surprise me. Another unintended consequence of the green radicals’ bright ideas.
