A Facebook post by the City of Fargo shows what can happen when people are busy flushing things down their toilets that should never be getting the old swirly treatment.

"These pictures are not showing a giant hairball; rather, they show a collection of items that shouldn't be flushed down the toilet and accumulated on sanitary lift station #25," the post read.

A system sensor apparently alerted city crews that there was an issue, and they responded, finding the large blob of unmentionables.
