Sewer Smells

"I recall a Christmas Day when my cousin had flushed a toothbrush down the toilet, which got firmly lodged in the sewer line between the house and the street. My father, grandfather, and uncle spent the next 12 hours opening sewer pipes in the basement while trying to fish the thing out. There was...stuff...everywhere. The smell permeated the house for days. Parents screaming, children yelling, and no functional toilet for all of Christmas Day. Now that was a crappy holiday."
