I suppose that as a PP.O newcomer, I am obliged to post here before I will truly be accepted. ;)
About three months ago, I had an amazing turd, about 18" all in one piece. Came out nice and easy, but when I went to flush it down, it swirled the bowl once, then bent in half and dove into the hole bend first, where it promptly got stuck halfway down.
Repeated flushes did nothing to help, as the pipe was not blocked and the water just kept rushing right on past. An attempt at plunging was equally unsucessful, for much the same reason.
Eventually I was forced to hack at it with the handle end of a toilet brush until it broke apart enough to continue its journey into the great unknown.
More recently, I've been prescribed some new diabetes meds which have the listed side effects of "gas, sometimes severe; diarrhea; constipation" among others. I would have thought that these were mutually exclusive, but no, not so.
Suffice it to say, the last three weeks have been, um, interesting. At least things seem to be easing up a bit, finally.
