Can’t afford your own toilet paper? Now that’s Jerseylicious

Mar 16, 2012

Five days ago we at ToiletPaperWorld all waited with bated breath to see if the great state of New Jerseywould be able to resolve its budget.  Apparently, they had severe problems balancing their office supply budget and were dangerously close to running out of toilet paper.  This battle began back in November when a $42,000 order was not approved because it had $4,000 worth of cups, which was over the cup budget and ended up holding up the entire order.  Part of the hesitance to approve the whole order have been suspected occurrences of stolen toilet paper – for which Jumbo toilet rolls are a viable solution.

In a dramatic twist, PETA stepped in as the deadline was nearly up and offered to donate a six month supply of toilet paper which New Jersey has apparently accepted.

The caveat of this is the toilet paper will be printed with the message “Slaughterhouses are so filthy that more than half of all meat is contaminated with fecal bacteria. Wipe cruelty from your diet. Go vegan. PETA.”  On the bright side, I doubt anyone would steal this toilet paper unless they did so for novelty purposes.
Nothing against PETA, but I think I would be annoyed enough by toilet paper propaganda to bring my own toilet paper into work from home.  Read the full story at Fox News.

    This is humorous and disturbing at the same time. I mean to give a donation but with a condition. Not that this is new since a lot of these things do happen. But for a group that is all abot “ethics”? I think this is underhanded.

    My diet contains no animal products and I’m NOT keen on the way slaughterhouses are run, but I am nonetheless skeptical that “more than half of all meat is contaminated with fecal bacteria.” At least, I’m skeptical that this statement means anything. What do they mean by “contaminated?” Do they mean you can find one lonely E. Coli bacterium on a half-pound steak?

    Since people aren’t dropping dead every other time they eat a burger, it makes me wonder what PETA is trying to convey here. I rather think the message they end up conveying is, “We had a great idea about putting an important message on toilet paper, but we wasted it.”

    Very thoughtful comment. Though I do eat meat and don’t have a strong opinion either way on PETA’s message, I agree with you that it is a wasted opportunity to embellish a fact in that manner. I’m sure there are plenty of 100% accurate statements that could’ve been used as the message instead. Thank you for reading!

    Is there any organization or society who provides free toilet papers? I think anyone can afford at least toilet paper.

    The message is too aggressive that it may somehow sound absurd to other people. They could have used other words instead of this statement. I agree with Daniel, the idea of campaign is brilliant, but the message could have been better.

    PETA giving donation but on condition and the message written on toilet paper is very funny.
