With Halloween approaching I’m reminded of an episode of the Honeymooners in which Ralph and Norton compete for first prize for their costumes at a Halloween party (watch the full episode here—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doDAfhbu‐‐U). Not to give too much away, but Norton dresses as Pierre François de la Brioski, the (fictional) designer and builder of the sewers of Paris, and as he says, “In the immortal words of Pierre François de la Brioski, ‘Un robinet qui fuit peut devenir un cauchemar!’ ” Well, that’s not exactly what he says, but in honor of Norton’s profession (plumber), I want to talk about plumbing issues.
