an Oh Myyy Property

A pair of unusual new mascots have appeared in a Canadian city:

Pee and Poo.

The scatological pair have been adopted by Metro Vancouver – the district that includes British Columbia's biggest city – as part of its Unflushables campaign, which aims to discourage citizens from blocking the sewer system.

According to their Facebook page, Metro Vancouver is:

"Metro Vancouver is a federation of 21 municipalities, one Electoral Area and one Treaty First Nation that collaboratively plans for and delivers regional-scale services. Its core services are drinking water, wastewater treatment and solid waste management."
"Metro Vancouver also regulates air quality, plans for urban growth, manages a regional parks system and provides affordable housing. The regional district is governed by a Board of Directors of elected officials from each local authority."

Watch their introduction video here:

Larina Lopez, division manager of corporate communications at Metro Vancouver, said:

“The only things meant to be flushed are pee, poo and toilet paper."

The campaign is trying to raise awareness of seven products in particular that should not be flushed down the toilet as they can cause blockages: wipes, dental floss, hair, tampons, condoms, medications and paper towels.

Helping get that message across at Waterfront Station in Vancouver were Pee and Poo, who offered advice and free toilet paper.

Richard Stewart, chair of Metro Vancouver Liquid Waste Committee, said:

“We really as consumers have to understand that what gets flushed doesn't just disappear, it goes down and has to be dealt with."

Pee and Poo want you to know that wipes are not flushableMetro Vancouver

He added:

“We want people to only flush the pee and the poo because there's a whole bunch of stuff that gets flushed down the toilet that doesn't belong there."

The video left some residents desperate to see more of the cuddly oversized human waste products.

One commented:

“PLEASE let us know if Poo and Pee are making any more public appearances. I need a picture with these two more than I've ever needed anything else in my life!!"

People commented on their Twitter post with more information and a few suggestions.

The campaign is certainly drawing attention to Metro Vancouver. But whether or not people heed the message behind the new mascots remains to be seen.

Game of Thrones fans are a passionate lot.

For eight seasons they wrung their hands and argued back and forth about who would sit on the iron throne and rule the seven kingdoms in the end.

But it turns out, the show may have told us right from the beginning.

Yes, if you've been on the internet, you know that everybody, even Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hates the 8th and final season of Game Of Thrones.

But a couple of Reddit posters are trying to ameliorate the vitriol flying at the end of the show by fleshing out a fan theory-which actually, totally makes sense.

"To a deluxe apartment in the sky"

...all have in common?

If you guessed Jennifer Hudson slaying them, you'd be correct!

Bye Felicia!

Best friends for life! That's the motto. Friends before lovers because lovers come and go. The list of friendship mantras is endless. So you would think that means everyone sees their relationships with the people they call their closest, not blood related, chosen family will be endless. No expirations date. Sadly this is not always the case. Sometimes people do just come and go in your life, actually the older you get you realize most people come and go and ninety percent of the time, the going is the best thing that happens. It's not the happiest fact but it is often the sanest. Life is long, you can have many besties.

Redditor u/HairyFaithlessness was interested in hearing some the best reasons behind... Why don't you talk to your once "best friend" anymore? Pay attention for yourself in these. Red flags are afoot.

A Jeopardy! contestant underestimated host Alex Trebek's intelligence when he clarified a gambling phrase in layman's terms.

James Holzhauer is a Las Vegas sports gambler, which is something not that different from playing the popular TV trivia game show.

He wagered "two dimes" and the brief silence that followed prompted Holzhauer to explain what he meant in case the omniscient host was in the dark.
