King County Kindly Asks That You Be 'Flushing Awesome'

King County really, really, really wants you to stop flushing your condoms and tampons down the toilet, please. It costs them $120K/year just to remove this trash from the system and some poor treatment employees have had to spend inordinate amounts of time inside the sewers clearing out all of your unwelcome leavings (though isn't ANY amount of time spent inside a sewer inordinate?). To drive this message home, they've done the only thing that could possibly get through to the kids today...a Macklemore parody song.
