We here in the South would solve this problem by drilling a hole in the upper left corner of any Obama books and hanging them in the outhouse. I’m seriously considering building an outhouse so that I can do that.

Fantastic idea! Think the Trenton City Council will go for it?

Toilet paper contracts for public buildings in Jersey have to go through Tony Soprano’s crew.

All those printings of the “obamacare” bill should work nicely....

We used to live in Trenton. Had an outdoor toilet, used the Sears & Roebuck catalog for toilet paper. - Only it wasn’t in NJ. Fergit I said anything; but there ARE ways to improvise.

When there’s no time left to sit and linger they’ll know what to do.

Now that the Trenton Toilet Paper Crisis has hit the national news, a quick fix is likely to come.

Simple solution. Bring in a roll of tp and you get your paycheck. Why are they wasting tax dollars on paper cups when employees can bring their own from home.

Any serious Prepper should already have more than a few cases of TP stashed away.

If this gets serious, I may pack it up and head to New Jersey and sell the stuff for 5 bucks a roll. Two rolls for four pre-1965 quarters.

It just boggles my mind that a simple thing like ordering/contracting paper goods for a single city is so difficult. Make no mistake..these people on the city council are buttin’ heads for more reasons than paper products.

Now..they are gonna get laughed at and talked about, so miraculously they will come up with a solution.

Sounds like Nairobi International Airport back in the 1980’s.

BYOTP!

Any native Michigander has at least ten 24-packs squirreled away in the basement for the next big snowstorm.
