London fatberg


#1

have we had a thread about the Whitechapel fatberg yet?

what would you do with a 250 metre long clump of fat that weighs 130 tonnes (once you’ve freed it from the sewer)?

I find it kind of fascinating - it must be FULL of genetic material

also
FATBERG


#2

Would be a great name for a classic Hollywood leading man


#3

Landon Fatbergh


#4

make it foreign secretary??? No wait they already did that!!!


#5

Should be the next Bond.


#6

Just like [redacted]'s mum


#7

Turn it into expensive burgers or an up-cycled and quirky bar


#8

don’t try and eat your lunch whilst looking at photo’s of this. utterly grim.


#9

next Bond villain

actually, Bond could go a bit more fantasy action adventure, have a shapeshifting ultra-nemesis - a joint US & British Govt. genetic programme to make the elite soldier gone horribly wrong & hellbent on revenge


#10

#11

looks pretty delicious to me


#12

ha wasn’t really directed at you. I made the mistake of reading this story a few weeks back whilst eating. Urrggh.


#13

Think I read somewhere that they’re going to donate some of it to the Science Museum. May be making this up, mind.


#14

The Museum of London want it apparently

I’m only mentioning the subject today because there was a press-release saying that ‘It will take much longer than previously thought’ to remove it - there was a Thames Water bod talking about it on Swedish Radio

won’t be shifted until after Christmas


#15

Hoxton Fatberg


#16

They should hang it in Hyde Park over the winter. Could feed the blue tits


#17

might provide an interesting ecosystem but I’m not sure blue tits are too keen on anything other than lard & suet


#18

probably sleep with a man for a little bit of money.


#19

Rule 34


#20

Fatbergs are a reason why I’m not in a better job in the first company I worked for.

The story is too fascinating to write down here, of course.
