Uproar Over The Morning Paper

Petition Delays Christmas Rollout

Polish consumers are organising a petition demanding a Christmas loo roll be banned. The festive toilet paper on sale in Lublin by pharmacy chain Rossman has been branded "repulsive and base''. It features pictures of reindeers and stars and little messages in English saying "Merry Christmas''. A spokesman for the Lublin youth chaplaincy that is organising the petition said: ``This could only have been dreamt up by someone exceptionally thoughtless.'

FOOTNOTE: "Ass you like it" (sorry Mister Shakespeare).

Until your footnote, I didn't get what was offensive. Still, I think people choose the wrong things to get upset about.

I have a friend who gets all of her rejection letters (she's a novelist) printed on toilet paper. Santa works too! ;)

I dont see why anyone would want pictures on toilet paper, its a ridiculous concept to start with.

A "Made in America" product, I thought they were extinct.

I'm sure it's just as unpopular as the Jesus toilet paper.

Will these marketing types ever learn?

The Roman Emperor Nero had to give them games, nowadays toilette paper does the trick. Oh well, always good to read that at least nobody has to stand in line there anymore for life's essentials. ;-)

Man, imagine the possibilities for NEW YEARS DAY! You know, those "blow & roll-out" whistles---actually could be quite handy! Roll up a "hunk" in there, and let 'er fly! A GREAT way to start the first fight of the new year.....!
