The Dough

It doesn’t quite have the same menacing connotation as “The Blob”… yet.

LEWISTON – A 50- to 60-foot doughy mass is clogging a sewer line under the city’s main drag, and crews have been unable to budge it.

“We’re not sure exactly what it is,” Public Services Director David Jones said Wednesday. “We’re just trying to get rid of it. We want it to stop clogging up our pipe.

The Blob’s… er, the Dough’s PR flak on full force days after its discovery, blame for “blockage” is directed elsewhere.

The plot thickens.
