Grinding Nemo

Some friendly (& funny) advice for parents:A company that makes sewage-treatment equipment is warning parents whose kids have seen “Finding Nemo” that flushing a fish down a toilet is a bad way to get it to the ocean:

…drain pipes do lead to the ocean — eventually — but first the fluid goes through powerful machines that “shred solids into tiny particles.”

“In truth, no one would ever find Nemo and the movie would be called ‘Grinding Nemo,”‘ wrote the JWC Environmental company, which makes the trademarked “Muffin Monster” shredding pumps.
