Today I learned that eel young are called grigs.

I think my son is a sloth. He consistently blocks the toilet drain with poops the size of a red bull can.

WTF? dude. I asked him how often he poops and he said a couple of times a week.

Gonna sneak some Senna into his cornflakes...

Tell the little dude that there is no shame in it and teach him to use the plunger.

Yeah. We had a "mystery" clogger for a while. Nobody would admit it was them. Except I knew it was my daughter, because a parent can read their kids easily. So next time there was a brick in there, I showed them both how to unclog a toilet. That let her save face because her brother was in there too. And they both learned a life skill. Hasn't been a problem since.

BTW, I think plungers are gross. I prefer a bucket of water poured in from shoulder height. It's cleaner. I taught them both methods. Besides, if you plug up a friend's toilet, they might not have a plunger in there, but they probably have a water tight trash can you can fill from the tub spout.

They know. Buckets of water don't work, nor do plungers. They need to be broken up...

I finally got them to stop leaving catcher's mitts in there. baby steps.

Ugh..

Yeah, plungers *are* gross, but your preferred alternative sounds like a far riskier proposition. Putting More water into an already partly, maybe mostly full bowl with a finite capacity sounds dangerous. Sure, it's *possible* to drown a fire with gasoline, but I don't want to try it.

The toilet in our house can only take.... small bites, shall we say. Flush early and often. I don't ration the toilet paper, but the toilet does. And when it does, it is almost always during some point in the drain part of the flush cycle, leaving some material and some quantity of water in the bowl. Then the recharge/refill part of the cycle continues, refilling the bowl.

To me, moving that mess down the road with the minimum fuss, overflow, and nasty splashing (how the hell do you keep the splashing down?!) means using the plunger, carefully. The plunger can be, and is, cleaned afterward.

The worst case is when that early and often plan is begun not early enough and the second flush only lights the fuse of the bomb your sitting on. Detecting the detonation by the soaking of the scrotum in a big bowl full of filth is one of the worst surprises *ever*.

There's no time to find and fill a bucking fucket.

I understand your skepticism, but the bucket of water really works.

Depends on the bowl, properly executed plumbing, and ninja turtle population.

A healthy digestive system should be pooping more often than that; ideally one formed movement per day. But it's not the worst health problem you could have...

Try not to be too vigorous w/the plunging.

Gentle, like a lover.

Bored much? Do a Google image search for sexy plunger.

The results are...interesting.
