Holidays Really Suck

"We had a large sucker fish as a pet named Big Sucky. Despite my objections, when Big Sucky passed away, my husband decided to dispose of it by flushing it down the toilet. Needless to say, Big Sucky became stuck somewhere in the drain. After failed plunging attempts, hubby bought a toilet snake. No dice and the toilet bowl was now heavily scratched. He ended up removing the toilet entirely and snaked the drain through the floor. Success! He fished out (ha!) a clog of Big Sucky and other debris by hand. Needless to say, this was not our first toilet clog. We bought a new toilet with a really large flush capacity and have had no problems since. But, now, whenever something goes terribly wrong, we like to say, 'Well, THAT flushed the Big Sucky.' "
