The Defeat Of The Big Log Monster.

In lieu of the fact that I don’t even know what ‘lieu’ means, today’s post, featuring Spawn, Ophelia and Princess, has been postponed due to a serious clean-up operation now taking place. What happened? No one in particular asked. Well sit down and let me tell you the tale of the big Log Monster and how I came to conquer such evil.


For those of a nervous disposition, read no further. You have been warned!! Seriously, I’m not kidding. I’m not going to tell you again. You still reading? Look, don’t blame me if you feel ill afterward. I mean it’s up there in big red letters that you’ve been warned. Fine, have it your way.

The Defeat Of The Big Log Monster.

It all started on a day much like today. A day in which the clouds hung pregnant with a portent of foreboding. Chilling the air with their ominous and heavy presence, they spewed forth their ice cold expectancy upon a world that…oh wait…that was last Thursday, I do apologise. Anyway, It all begun on a day that wasn’t like last Thursday. I was busy with the unenviable task of being a mother. The colossal burden of having to rise from the comfort of my sofa to go into the kitchen, make myself a cup of tea and then rush back before the closing credits of Jeremy Kyle had began, weighed heavily upon my feeble mind.  As I faced the daunting prospect of missing the last 5 minutes of  ‘I had sex with at least 12 men in a hour, but I’m pretty sure that you are the father…he has your eyes.’  I became acutely aware that the little man appeared to be going through some kind of crisis in the bathroom. It wasn’t until I heard his cries of,” OH MY GOD, IT’S ALIVE!!” That I decided to venture forthwith and investigate the cause of his melodramatics.

On entering the bathroom, I was met with the sight of  Spawn’s head practically shoved down the toilet bowel. My first instinct was to shove it down further and then press the flush button but then common sense prevailed at the very last moment. (Damn you common sense!)

feac6-jessica“Why is your head half way down the toilet bowl?”

evil (1)(Spawn still seemingly engrossed in what was going on at the bottom of the bowl) “It wont flush.” 

jessica “What wont flush? Don’t tell me that you’ve been trying to give your Dalek toy another wash in the ‘Jacuzzi’ again? How many times have I told you, the toilet is not a whirlpool”.

evil (1)“Twenty two and no, it’s not that. Look…it won’t flush.

Stepping forward hesitantly and afraid that I might see that the bowl had become obstructed by the carcass of a dead cat or the remains of a severed human head, (remember, he is evil after all) I looked carefully over the rim to see a sight that almost had my eyes popping out of their sockets. For there before me, was the biggest and longest poo that I had ever seen in my life. As I stared at the gargantuan bit of waste product, I couldn’t help but be awed by how such a slim child could have physically pushed out something that looked almost as big as he did.

 Looking closely, I remembered Spawn’s’s words from earlier when he had cried out that it was alive. This did indeed appear to be true, for I had a slight feeling that it was somehow mocking me from within it’s porcelain abode.

jessica“Right, well that’s easily fixed. We’ll just flush it again shall we?” I offered reaching for the flush button.

evil (1) “NOOOO!” The little man screamed in abject terror. “All that will do is make it…”

Too late, I had already commenced flushing and there we both stood, with looks of absolute horror and disgust etched upon our faces as the waste matter slowly rose to the top…and stayed there. A massive brown log, floating on top of a sea of water, pillowed by a lilo of toilet paper.

OK, OK, easy solution. When the water subsides a little, we’ll just do what my mum would have done. (I have two brothers and a step-dad, so I’m guessing this was a regular occurrence for her) We will simply get a bucket of water and pour it into the bowl, the pressure of the added water will weigh it down and make it easier to flush away…It didn’t. What happened instead was that the log reached right to the very top of the toilet rim, almost spilling to the floor. As it rose, we both screamed and didn’t stop until the water once again subsided, which took about 10 minutes. And so with very sore throats, we sought new solutions only to discount one idea after the other. Finally…

jessica “OK, There’s only one thing for it…I’m going in.”

evil (1)“What?! Have you taken leave of your senses woman?! You can’t go in there, it’s far too dangerous! I have heard tales mother. Tales of men who have been trained specifically for a task such as this. Brave men, men with fortitude and courage. Men who have stared into the bowels of hell itself and lived to tell their story. Let us just call the plumber mater, It is the only way.”

jessica ” I cannot wait that long Spawn. By the time he gets here it will be too late…no, I’m going to have to deal with this myself.”

evil (1)(Little man lips quivering and eyes filling with tears) Confound you woman!!  It’s far too dangerous I tell you! What about me? Think of what you’ll be putting me through!


evil (1)“Okay.” (sniffs back a tear) “Just…just be careful.”

jessica” I will, I promise. But Spawn…if I don’t make it…


jessica“I must little one… for If I don’t make it…you’ll have to go down the road and use the toilets in MacDonald’s instead.”

evil (1)(falls to knees in defeat) “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

jessica“Be brave my child. Have courage. After all, wasn’t it Confucius who said, ‘man who fall in molten glass, make spectacle of self’.”

evil (1)“What? What the blazes has that got to do with…”

jessica“Now hand mummy the the toilet duck with it’s nice, perfumed, lemony freshness that smells like a summer’s breeze…now the toilet brush…(breathes deeply) I’m going in.”

And down I went, deep into the slippery, dank, fetid bowl in order to do battle with the log monster. And what a monumental battle it was. Not only would it not break up into pieces, for it’s will was too strong and all it could think of was survival. It also kept evading the bristles of the brush like some poo version of the Silver Surfer. I attempted to make a stabbing motion with the brush all the while shouting, “DIE, DIE! WHY WONT YOU DIE DAMMIT?” Before falling on my knees in frustration, the log monster continuing to mock me from it’s shallow fortress. And that’s when Spawn bravely stepped forward.

evil (1) “I’ll do it mater. Step aside.”

jessica “No you cant, I’m afraid it has defeated us. It cannot be vanquished. It’s consistency is far mightier than our will. We will have to call the plumber.”

evil (1) “No mother! WE can do it. Together we can face any adversary and overcome any obstacle. For together we are united, Together we are strong.”

And with those fine words of encouragement, I gave the log monster one more push, holding it under the water while the little man flushed. And just as quickly as it had appeared, It was gone. We had triumphed. The log monster was no more.

And that, my dear friends, is the story of how I came to conquer the big Log Monster. Bet you wished you hadn’t continued to read on, don’t you? Well you were warned.

  1. Ah yes Miss Lily. . . . The Big Log Monster I hope you realise these things breed down in the depths of their underground domain designed by that Victorian chap Joseph Bazalgette and one day they will return. I would not like to be about when that comes back.

    When the Lil man is older you will be able to read all these posts to his work colleagues. He will enjoy that.


    • I think it’s still alive Mr Z. Lurking in the tunnels and feeding off sewer rats. Only when it has grown to gigantic proportions, will it seek revenge, destroying everything in it’s path!

      I’m thinking of saving these particular posts for the special woman in his life. Surely she’ll want to know every minute detail about him…every single tiny little detail. *cackles with evil intent*


    • No, you’re awesome Scott Danzig, for leaving such an awesome comment! Thank you, although I don’t think that Mr Hanky the Christmas Poo, has anything to worry about just yet. At least he can dance and sing, whereas Spawn’s log monster, just kinda sat there, emitting a particularly strong and pungent ordour and looking all superior and smug. (yep, I looked that closely) Might need to raze the house to the ground to get read of that stench.

  2. What a time to start reading blogs again!

    As you may recall, a good proportion of my job is cleaning the loos here on site. It is not a pretty task and some of the sites seen do not bare repeating!

    There is something rather satisfying (from a blokes point of view anyway) from a bit of bathroom broadband (The installation of a lengthy brown or black “dirty cable” in the bottom of the toilet bowl. aka – a substantial download), when one pops to the Throne Room.

    Glad to see things haven’t changed around here! Keep up the brilliant work Lily.

    • Did you just use broadband as an analogy for going to the crapper? Only you Mr H. That’s why it’s so good to have you back. No one else gives good analogies like you do. 🙂


  3. OMG… I have visions of it now alive living in the sewers, growing bigger by the moment. Be careful of the manholes over there.. one minute you are just walking by minding your own business, next thing you see teenage mutant turtles evacuating in their masses…

    I do recall living with a female flatmate that used to lay tree trunks in the bog and same thing, could not flush it down. All I could think of was – well its not for this blog – something about tunnels and rear exits….

  4. Aw geez, you missed such a golden (or should I say brown?) opportunity. You coulda dressed that thing up, and written a book about it. (him?) Seriously, I did a post a while ago about weird children’s books, and one of them was called something like “Senor Poo,” and I kid you not, this big turd dressed up in golf clothing was featured on the cover!

    Anyhow, it takes a special kinda person to appreciate a crappy post like this one. (My mother always told me I was special…)

    Last year, one of our granddaughters emerged from the bathroom, with a silly grin on her face. She said, “Grandpop, I pooped a brick!” Luckily, she was able to flush it down without assistance.


    • LOL!! I see your granddaughter is a child without a filter. That makes her my kinda child!
      My nephew has the book, ‘The Long Journey Of Mister Poop’ Or Senor Caca, as he’s known in Spanish. I think it’s the same character, though this one wears a beret and carries a brief case on the cover. Ooh, I feel another book review coming on…
      And your mother was right, you are special, but not in the way that therapists say the word ‘special.’ 🙂


  5. LOLILY! I especially loved the way you introduced the scenario. I certainly wish I would have caught the episode of having sex with 12 men in an hour but pretty sure you’re the father. Wasn’t that a Friends episode?


    • Linda, the introduction is to ease readers into the horror that is my writing.
      Ooh, you should have seen the episode where the two gay men who had been a couple for three years, found out that they were in fact BROTHERS!! I bet Friends never did an episode like that!


  6. LMAO Lily! “It’s Alive!!” The Franken-shit monster emerges from the depths of the toilet bowl!! Spawn ought to make the Guinness Book of World Records for that gargantuan record-breaking log. Extra kudos to you Lily for your bravery in going in. Nice team work there at the end, monster flushed and vanquished, overflow averted, plumbing costs saved!! This story was too good not to read to the end, an epic tale that’s literally full of drama, suspense and…!!! 🙂

    • The Franken-shit Monster, I love that!
      Seriously Madilyn, I swear that thing was alive. I didn’t know whether to flush it or call it Sir.
      Spawn and I always work as a team. I open the crisp packet, he eats the crisps. I unwrap a choccy bar, he snaps off half and scoffs it. Team work.

      Thank you M. 🙂
