Let them eat cake

Well, I'm up against my will right now and so I figured I might as well use the time to watch 'Animals Behaving Badly' on animal planet and make entries here. For instance, there was a recent news story I stumbled over that I found sorta interesting.

City Battles Giant Blob

LEWISTON, Maine -- A large, mysterious blob has taken over a major sewer line in the city of Lewiston, leaving public works crews stumped as to how to budge it.

According to city officials, the stretch of 12-inch pipe on Main Street backed up on Jan. 13, and the city has been trying unsuccessfully to clear the line ever since.

Deputy Public Services Director Kevin Gagne told News 8 the doughy, 90-foot mass is comprised of grease, flour and rags.

Gagne said the city has chosen to replace the 170-foot line at a cost of between $40,000 and $60,000. Work is expected to begin this week.

It's like someone was working on baking the world's biggest sewar cake. Maybe it was the Mole King's birthday or something.
