School asks pupils to bring own toilet roll – Yahoo! News
DUBLIN (Reuters) – Irish parents struggling to buy schoolbooks and uniforms in the face of a deep recession may now have to worry about sending their children to school with a toilet roll as well as a packed lunch.
The next time a teacher asks a student to “Wipe that silly grin from your face,” the child will be prepared.
On a happier note, a school official reportedly told a correspondent for the Worcestershire Sauce Times that toilet paper rolls would be saved and then recycled for adult education art classes.
On a sadder note, it really sucks that the recession has forced a school system to cut toilet paper from its budget.
A shout out to the The Many Face of Spaces for posting this story, as well as Vidafine for the toilet paper roll artwork. Both sites feature really unique and entertaining content.
