LONDON, - Officials with the New York Jets confirmed the team brought 350 rolls of toilet paper to London so they wouldn't have to use the thinner, British version.
The Jets, scheduled for a Sunday game against the Miami Dolphins at London's Wembley Stadium, had more than 5,000 items shipped to London ahead of their Friday arrival in the city, including 350 rolls of toilet paper.
Team officials said the toilet paper in London is thinner than what the team members would be used to from the United States.
"Some may say that's a little over the top or whatnot, but it didn't really cost that much, so why not?" Aaron Degerness, Jets senior manager of team operations, told The New York Times. "We're basically trying to replicate everything that we're doing here over there."
The other items shipped by the Jets include cereal, extension cords, gauze pads and wrist bands.
The team members also met with a speech therapist and were each given a pair of orange glasses for their trip to help them doze without blue light interference from phones and tablets.
Boy will the save the tree idiots be upset about this!!
The Jets are full of Shiite and require wiping one’s bum with extra large nappies made by Charmin.
Certainly must be a slow news day if this story is used to fill up space and waste ink.
The big question is will they clog British loos?
Thinner toilet (or turlit if you will) paper just gets doubled tripled quadrupled up as needed . Who do the greenskin tree huggers think they’re fooling?
We were put here to use God’s creation. Enjoy it while you can, you’re on the clock.
I spent several years in the UK and while it was in the early 60’s I can state the TP there is (was) in fact thin and it is also NOT soft but has the consistency (almost) of the paper used in the magazine section of newspapers.
Not butt friendly.
“...or turlit if you will”
Proper “New Yawkese” spelling is “Terlit”
It is a damn poor mind indeed which can't think of at least two ways to spell any word.
I suspect Londoners will riddle the stadium with British TP, they do have a sense of humor.
What’s the point? They’ll just have to exchange them for British Pounds when they get there. It would be MUCH EASIER to use credit/debit cards instead.
Stranded! Stranded on the toilet bowl!
What do you do when you’re stranded and you dont have a roll....!!
Good thing the teams aren’t women. They’s need 10 times that many.
Sounds like the catalogs in my Granny’s out-house when I was a kid.
The Muslims have a solution for that problem.
