    Laying Cable

    “Laying Cable” is a euphemism for having a shit or a dump.

    The phrase is based on the cable-like quality of certain solid excrement while the excretion from the body and its layering on the bottom of the toilet bowl refer to the laying aspect of this phrase.

    “Laying Cable” can be alternated with “Pressing Putty” to alleviate boredom when your audience gets tired of you using the same announcement every morning in the office before skive off for a fag.

    Example usage:

    “Hold the fort, I need to lay some cable and it could take a while!”.
