Dublin School Finances in the Crapper – Toilet Paper Wiped from Budget


School no longer flush with funds

What is the square root of a 1000-sheet roll of toilet paper?


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.

More Annoying Words – Posted at the Confessions of a Stay-at-Home-Mom blog

I’m adding to Amy’s list of annoying words at The Confessions of A Stay-at-Home-Mom, based on survey results of the most annoying words published at Yahoo.


Amy’s list of annoying words:

  • Synergy: I worked in HR for many years where I was forced to listen to and say this word and I find it very annoying. Additionally, I have no fucking idea what it means.
  • Interface: What? Do you mean talk or communicate? If so, than say that.
  • Pendulum: It just sound dirty and I feel like a need a shower every time I hear it.
  • Bro or Brah: As in the slang for brother. I freaking hate this! Shit, just say brother. It is not as if you are being asked to say, Australopithecus brotherus every time talk to or introduce your brother.
  • Frenemy: What? Do we really need this word? Can’t we all just get alone or at the very least if we can not get along can we all just move along?
  • Enema: Isn’t that the same thing as a frenemy?
  • Green: Okay, so maybe the color green is okay and a green crayon is okay. Basically as a color I am fine with green. But man, I am sick and tired of Green everything else. Green burning fuel, Green cars (and no I am not talking about my light green VW, although it does get excellent gas mileage), Green flooring, Green toothpaste, Green toilet bowl cleaners (which lead to a rather dingy looking toilet BTW…because you need bleach to kill poop germs people).
  • Bleach: Sounds like a noise you make while throwing up.
  • Vlog: Meaning video blog, but it sure sounds like a Romanian count who beheades Turks and impales them on stakes.

My list of annoying words:

  • Literally – Literally speaking, this word is literally the most overused word in the English language. And literally, every time I hear the word, I literally think my head’s going to explode.
  • My bad – Why doesn’t any one just say, “I’m sorry,” any more. No. It has to be “My bad,” which is a twice-removed apology from a distant cousin on the other side of the planet.
  • Give me five – Five what? Five bucks? Five excuses? Five falafels.? And if you’re not sick enough of hearing “Give me five” there’s also . . .
  • Give me a high five – WTF? Just say, “Great job!” Why does every one have to be such a goddamn drama queen?
  • Dude – Is this short for doody?
  • No way – Get real! There are only four directions in which to travel: left, right, forward, backward. Pick one!
  • That’s rad – Radical? Radioactive? A Jihadist is rad. Maybe the correct usage should be “Who’s Rad?” Some radical dude who glows in the dark right before he explodes.
  • Gobsmacked – This word sounds like it belongs in an x-rated movie.
  • Knock yourself out (okay, I cheated it’s a phrase) – Just give me a brick, rock, or 2-by-4, and I’ll be happy to bang it against my head until I slump to the floor bloodied and unconscious.
  • Do me a solid – Thanks, but I’ll do my own solid. Is this some type of Metamucil jargon? Must be the headline of their new “Do me a solid” ad campaign. I guess you’ve got to be really, really close friends or really, really stupid to do someone a solid, or just be into that kind of s**t. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

I’m tagging Kasa at Life sure is a snoozefest!! to come up with more annoying words.

Burnt Bums and Boobies – Newbie Guide to Nude Sunbathing

How to avoid being rude in the nude?


Nude Pool Etiquette:

  • Remove your clothing as soon as you find a lounge chair – ten-second rule – before your tush smooshes the cushion.
  • Always act naturally while removing your clothing in front of a bunch of smiling, naked strangers.
  • No gyrations or sexually suggestive movements allowed while removing clothing. This is not a strip joint.
  • Always bend from the knees down, never from the midsection. No one wants to look at that.
  • Hat, sunglasses, and suntan lotion are the only accessories permissible.
  • Standing around casually conversing with naked people is encouraged only if you are naked, conversing, and casual about it.
  • The head is the only body part that is permitted scratching.
  • As soon as you are dressed, you must leave the pool area immediately, or you’ll be forcibly removed by the big, fat hairy guy with man boobs.
  • Nametags and other pinned items are prohibited unless you’re wearing a hat.
  • If you wear clothing in the pool area longer than ten seconds, you will be considered a pervert, not the naked people.
  • No handstands allowed in the shallow end of the pool.
  • Nudists must remain at least 3 feet apart from each other at all times. No cheek kissing (upper or lower), hand shaking, or shoulder tapping allowed, especially if visually impaired.
  • No picture taking permitted unless it is of wildlife (not wild life), i.e., birds, rabbits, or roosters, not the other word used to depict roosters.
