Sorry for the not very pleasent thread! There has been a poo in my toilet for a few days now (although nobody will admit to doing it!!). It has been flushed loads but is still there! I have somebody coming round late afternoon and don't want it still there!!

In our family, that sort of poo is known as a jacket potato.

When we were last on holiday in Spain, someone left a poo all day long in a non air-conditioned very hot bathroom. When we returned to the villa after a days lazing at the beach, the smell hit us as soon as we opened the front door. Cooked poo.

My ds discovered the culprit and shouted 'Mum, Mum, someones put a jacket potato in the toilet!'

We all had to inspect it and I have to say that I haven't eaten a jacket potato since.

Judge - My batthroom didnt smell. Probably because it was under the water, in the u bend bit.

Funny story though!

My friends brother used to keep a poo cutting knife in his toilet brush container as this was a regular occurence for him.

LOL and yeuch at SheRa's friend's brother. Was he single by any chance?

Love the carrying the whole loo outside story.

I find an old toothbrush can also help in these situations.

Bucket of VERY hot water and flush. Repeat. Repeat...TMI but the hot water breaks down the fats... Gross smell though,,

And don't put extra loo roll in or it might overflow.....

My dad (sorry dad!) always used to do poos like this when I was growing up. We always called them 'dead otters'. He would come downstairs and proudly announce the prescence of a dead otter in the toilet.
