Irish School Asks Pupils To Bring In Own Toilet Paper

toilet-paper-irelandTHE recession is so bad in Ireland that even the bogs have been affected – pupils at St John’s Girls National School, Cork, are requested to bring their own toilet paper to school.

Or any other paper, like share certificates and deeds to new flats.

Says Catherine O’Neill, principal at St John’s Girls National School.

“The letter was sent out just as a way of balancing books here in the school and not intended as a demand.

“I’ve done a quick tour of the classrooms this morning and I’d say at least half the pupils have brought them (toilet rolls) in.”

The other half are finding new excuse for not handing in their homework.
