NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio left millions of New Yorkers scratching their heads Tuesday evening; posting bizarre instructions for the proper use of toilets in apartments and houses throughout the nation’s largest city.
“New York City: There are only FOUR things that should go in your toilet: poop, pee, puke, toilet paper. Everything else causes FATBERGS! What are Fatbergs? Well, you gotta click here,” posted de Blasio on social media.
