"These pipes are not designed to carry bras and knickers."

- Northumbrian Water spokeswoman

Clearly one of the better quotes to jump out of the morning news.

Somewhereabouts in England, some lady underthings that had been flushed down the 'loo (you know, in the WC) managed to block up a sewage pipe and even cause a road to collapse.


But why would anyone be flushing their bras and knickers? 'Tis a mystery, but I have to imagine it was something shameful and embarrassing, right? Then the whole street caves in and geeky yanks like me are laughing about it? Priceless!

Speculative Reporting!

My first guess was that some fickle chap was sneaking a little extra snoggin' on the side, noticed some incriminating lovage paraphernalia laying about, panics and flushes it before his missus can notice and kick him out on his arse.

Diggin deeper (I read the article!) I came across this:
"There was also a heavy build-up of grease and fat, which contributed to the situation."

Ah Ha!

Obviously, someone was building a woman made out of bacon.

Wonderful idea, betterment of society, but science is not ready.


not ready.
