The fatberg is longer than 6 double-decker buses and will take 8 weeks to dissect.

The quiet coastal town of Sidmouth, England is known to be flush with tourists each summer. But it may now be known for another accumulating mass—one that isn’t flushable.

Of course, Sidmouth’s fatberg is not the largest ever found. In 2017, London authorities found a 250-meter-long fatberg weighing 130 metric tons in a Victorian sewer on the east side of the city. Curators at the Museum of London put chunks of it on exhibit last year as something of a “piece of 21st-century archeology.” The festering nuggets drew large crowds to the museum, and their decomposition was livestreamed from specially designed isolation boxes.

In an interview with The New York Times, a spokesperson for South West Waters blamed an English favorite in part for Sidmouth’s stinky monster. The annual flocks of tourists tend to feast on deep-fried fish and chips, she noted. The city’s sewers likely strain to pass the massive influx of grease.

Roantree recommended that people “put your pipes on a diet and don’t feed the fatberg.”

Wait, it's fucking grease? As in, cooking oil. It's just chunks of used cooking oil that have accumulated over time. Who is the disgusting, subhuman scat fetishist who wrote this article?

It's from the decomposing oil that seperates from human shit. Since oil does not dissolve easily it water it accumulates into chunks when in a suspension. It's the same sewer grease that chink street vendors use to fry their food in
