Well it seems that "some people"...you know who you are...don't care if I have a shred of dignity left and insist on hearing about the Stuffed Green Pepper.
As you know, I'm a long time bachelor and not real domestic. I grocery shop about once every three months, whether I need to or not. About the only things you'll generally find in my fridge is Coca Cola and condiments....needless to say, I will jump on any offer for home-cooked food!
A couple of years ago, a "friend" made and brought me three stuffed green peppers. They were scrumpdilicious good...mmm, mmm. But alas, despite my best efforts, I could only eat two of them.
Now at this time, I was also having a big problem with raccoons getting into my trash...little bastards!
Sooooo....since I didn't want to put any food scraps in my trash...and I didn't have a disposal...so being the brainiac that I am...I figured if the toilet could dispose of "post processed" food, then "pre-processed" food shouldn't be a problem.
How'd that work out you might ask...and the answer would be "not to good"! On the night in question, I can only assume that the basics of toilet design was not on my radar...as I unceremoniously plopped a whole...yes, I said whole...stuffed green pepper into the toilet!!! Not my brightest moment. Imagine how dumbfounded I was when the toilet started to overflow!
As you can see in the above diagram, the pepper lodged in the trap and stubbornly defeated all attempts at removal. I plunged, Drano'd, snaked...all to no avail!!! I actually had to buy and install a new toilet!
So, when you're having a bad day...remember, at least you didn't try to flush a stuffed green pepper :-)
