Workers Break Up Giant 130-Ton Fatberg in London Sewers
Sewer authorities in London have declared victory over a giant 'fatberg' that was clogging the tunnels. So-called fatbergs are - and we're sorry if you're eating while you hear this - giant masses of waste, fat, tissue, etc. They cause huge headaches for sewer workers, who have been tasked with breaking it up using high-pressure jets, shovels and even their hands. It took them nine weeks to vanquish this fatberg, which weighed 130 stinky tons.
