    No. not an update from fletchman's plumber.



    "A 10-tonne lump of wet wipes and fat has been removed from a sewer in Chelsea, west London.

    The toxic lump of congealed fat and household waste – known as a fatberg – was 40 metres long and so heavy that it broke the 1940s-era sewer.

    Repairing the damaged sewer is expected to cost Thames Water £400,000 and take more than two months, the company said."

    And calling the people fat doesn't make any sense either. The pipe got clogged from them pouring the grease down the drain rather than consuming it.
