Some Assholes Always Have to Go and Ruin It for Everybody Else

The AP wants you to know that your special delicate snowflake butthole is causing a problem:

BEMUS POINT, New York (AP) — Increasingly popular bathroom wipes - pre-moistened towelettes that are often advertised as flushable - are being blamed for creating clogs and backups in sewer systems around the U.S.

Wastewater authorities say wipes may go down the toilet, but even many labeled flushable aren't breaking down as they course through the sewer system. That's costing some municipalities millions of dollars to dispatch crews to unclog pipes and pumps and to replace and upgrade machinery.

Quit it with the "flushable" wipes. You're not an infant. And if you are an infant who is somehow reading this right now, you should be throwing the flushable wipes away with your diapers, anyway.
