Me too.

I would be interested to see cost/benefit figures comparing that with a leaflet campaign with the same message. I wouldn't mind betting that the song would win by a good distance.

Cheers, Thimbles. I do like to be amused and educated at the same time.

Well, that's certainly a breath of fresh air and with a cogent message.

Cheerily,

Just two days ago a manhole outside the pub here was up and an inside job robot up the pipe was relaying a video of the sewer. Alas no singers down ours.

Transcribe the lyrics.

Not all of us "feast at the bountiful table of Flash."

Sincerely,

Down in the sew-er, shoveling up man-ure
That's where these blighters do their bit.
You can hear the shovels ring, ting-a-ling-a-ling-a-ling
When they're down in the sewer scooping shit.

to the tune of "Good King Wenceslas":

London's Sewermen looked out
On their fat-blocked sewers
Fat had fallen round about
Fat from turkey dinners
Fat is flushed both day and night
By those sewer sinners
Fat should not be flushed but binned
'Cos it blocks the sewers

Hither geezer stand by me
Help us to ensure
That the fat goes in the bin
Not into the sewer
Then our sewers they will be
Running free and easy
And us London Sewermen
Won't be half as queasy

Turkey fat and drains don't mix
Nor do dirty wet wipes
Only what comes out of you
Should go into our pipes
We can take your loo roll too
Just to stop it humming
Please be careful what you flush
Down your yuletide plumbing

And then there's a "12 Days" carol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIu1IGcxg08

And "Jingle Bells" (now with women in the chorus): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvP4klbSOAY
