In a sewer region located about 11 feet (4 meters) under the Whitechapel neighborhood in London, workers are just beginning to dismantle an inanimate but uniquely revolting inhabitant a vast and rock-solid plug of oily waste charmingly known as a "fatberg."
Composed of stinking garbage and grease and weighing in at 143 tons (130,000 kilograms), the Whitechapel fatberg sprawls for 820 feet (250 m) about the length of two English football fields. This means the blob is more than twice as long as the nefarious iceberg responsible for sinking the Titanic, which was estimated to measure a mere 200 to 400 feet (61 to 122 m) long.

Plumber friend of mine blames low-flow water "saving" toilets for this. More than a century ago, our general sewer systems were laid out, working strictly off gravity, to remove waste from our homes. Then, along came environmentalists demanding we "conserve" water. The problem now being that city/county engineers now have to come along every few months and pump hundreds of thousands of gallons of water through the systems to clear the shit out that never used to accumulate when the toilets were using 1.6 gallons per flush. They're not actually "saving" any water, and are instead using more.
