I’m sick with some form of cold, my internet is currently down and my toilet has been clogged the entire day. It’s fair to say things today are pretty…crappy. It’s like all the metaphorical walls collapsed and I’m sitting in my personal space, naked and exposed. I’m trying to cover up, but it’s too late. You’ve seen everything — now someone help me fix my damn toilet. It’s what’s known in the plumbing industry as a ‘soft clog,’ meaning there’s an abundance of toilet paper somewhere in the pipe. As of now, the toilet bowl is filled to the brim, however in about an hour it will eventually go down. Now, from what I’ve read on the internet, I have two options: Wait till the water goes down and pour liquid soap and hot water down the bowl or unravel a coat hanger and literally ‘fish out’ the clog from the pipe. Scientifically, the liquid soap will sink to the bottom and be used as a lubricant for the clog, combined with hot water, it should loosen and eventually let water pass through. The latter option seems ridiculous. I can’t imagine a scenario in which I will be on my knees with a coat hanger, elbow deep in a dirty toilet. I’m lost.
Oh, so you’re telling me this article isn’t about the cataclysmic disaster that’s confined in my bathroom? Damn. Well, I guess I should probably tell you that Hector Lombard vs. Trevor Prangley has been slated for Bellator 58 in a non-title, 195lb catchweight fight — but one of you should really help me with my plumbing problems. I mean, I can’t even focus on reality right now. My toilet has temporarily ruined my world. [Source]
