1 mouse drowns in a glass of port
18 snails purchase home insurance
712 butterflies self-harm

Below is a list of ’25 Things That You Might Find in a Sewer or Storm Drain’ (‘things’ is used here in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and had any inter-word spaces repositioned. For example, if ‘Joseph Bazalgette’ was present, he might appear as…

JSPHBZ LGTT

Methane would be…

MTHN

The theme of last week’s hive foxer was correctly identified by phlebas but many of the component words remain foxy.
