A new El-Reg unit?
I just noticed this in today's Guardian Coronavirus/Politics blog:
A foul clump of wet wipes and other unflushable items as heavy as a rottweiler has been dragged from a Thames Water sewer, as the number of blockages the company has to deal with has increased by 8% during lockdown.
The grim 40kg bundle had snarled up a temporary pipe in Maidenhead, Berkshire, where Thames Water, the UK’s largest water and wastewater company, has been repairing a collapsed sewer.
Should the Rottweiler be included in the official list of El-Reg weights and measures? - 1 Rottweiler = 40kg of foul stuff apparently.
