10-tonne fatberg removed from west London sewer
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Gross!
Do you know what's lurking beneath you in the sewers? Gigantic lumps of congealed fat and wet wipes, is what!

Don't forget the term FATBERG
Oh, don't you worry. It's lodged in my brain.
I thought fatberg was a made up word but Wikipedia says they have happened several times over the last few years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatberg
A little PandaWhale history:
Yikes, I think I had blocked that out of my mind.
