The toilet in my apartment is clogged big time!

I've plunged it! I've snaked it! I've prayed to the monkey gods and I can't get it to release the poo sludge. It looks like I'm calling the apartment complex tomorrow. I so feel for the guy that has to take care of this.

Stop being a wussy. Reach right down there and pull out the clog.

I really thought that praying to the monkey gods would work folks! Seems to me that I need to find religion!

Just called the complex. Someone is on their way. I'm offering them a beer after this one.

Try vinegar + baking soda mix in it, it unclogged my toilet. Do it several times, dump the fuzzy mix into the toilet.

Oh my goodness!!

Ha!

Was married to plumber with own business (smile) and he ran into that stuff. Hehe. And he would charge more for people and home remedies (as did the businesses he worked thru before going out on his own)

What you DON'T DO is put down all sorts of chemicals to unclog the drain. Ex actually went to the hospital one time for chemical poisoning from all the junk people put down the drain (over the counter stuff) to unclog plugs!

I like to think laying pipe is my specialty but I'm not a plumber.

Okay Foo, everything is good now. The man from the complex stoped over and took care of the problem. Man, did he have an epic snake!

I'm not fond of chemical solutions. A snake may get messy, but it will do the job with no nasty smells in the house, or even worse, the chemical backing up onto your floor when it fails to do the work.

With a snake like that, did he at least offer you some salty nuts or sunflower seeds?

The exception, of course, is C3H5(NO3)3

Anyone that can wrap it around twice and stick it in their ear has got to be one seriously bad dude.
