    Bus-sized chunk of congealed lard, cooking oil and other nastiness was discovered in a London sewer. The thing weighed 15 tons and was threatening to start oozing out of manhole covers and onto the street. Sanitation workers spent three weeks dismantling it with high-pressure hoses.

    Meanwhile, McDonalds is putting in a call to the London Sanitation Department to see if they had a deal on lard for their fryers.

    Fatberg sounds like the perfect fraternity nickname for a pledge. "Hey Fatberg, get me a beer."

    I thought this would be an unexploded WWII bomb.

    Somehow, a 15-ton Shitberg sounds less gross.

    Conspiracy theory. It's really a corpse.
