New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio offered some advice on Twitter Tuesday about proper toilet management.
“New York City: There are only FOUR things that should go in your toilet,” the Mayor’s Office tweeted, along with illustrative emojis. “poop, pee, puke, toilet paper. Everything else causes FATBERGS! What are fatbergs? Well, you gotta click on FatbergFree.nyc.”
“Fatberg” combines the words “fat” and “iceberg” to describe the masses of congealed grease and personal hygiene products found lingering in sewers around the world. “They are HUGE, DISGUSTING, DESTRUCTIVE, and COSTLY!” the tweet emphasizes.
