This story is about toilet paper… or the lack thereof.
Making nifty bridal gowns that don’t do well when wet, and eating them as a snack are just some of the 'other' things you can do with bathroom tissue. But what happens when the unthinkable happens and there’s no more paper?
That was the dilemma facing Trenton, New Jersey, when city council members rejected a proposal to buy more TP because they would also have to buy paper cups.
City workers were spared having to use newspapers or corncobs when PETA, the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals, offered to donate six-months of toilet paper carrying messages about slaughter houses and fecal matter in meat.
"Slaughterhouses are so filthy that more than half of all meat is contaminated with fecal bacteria," the rolls read. "WIPE CRUELTY FROM YOUR DIET. GO VEGAN."
All city facilities would have been at the end of their rolls by the end of the week. Now, if they can order all of those paper cups, just think of the water they’ll save.
