This just in from our big, cloggy daddy in NY: Proving that people will research anything and everything, the SCOTT Clog Clinic says LA is the third-cloggiest city in the country. In this case, we're happy to let NY be #1. The -ist cities are well-represented in the top clogs list (we're hoping this just means we've all got crappy crummy plumbing):

1. New York
2. Miami/Fort Lauderdale
3. Los Angeles
4. Philadelphia
5. Houston
6. Atlanta
7. Chicago
8. Portland, OR
9. Indianapolis
10. San Francisco Bay Area

Seattle/Tacoma is the least cloggy - maybe Seattle has a super powerful sewer system? High-fiber diets? A plethora of bidets?

More fun facts: The cloggist days of the year are Thanksgiving, the Super Bowl, and then Christmas. And today is National Plumber's Day. Who knew?
