Students in Ireland now have one more thing to remember to bring to school, along with their school books and lunches: toilet paper. “Pupils at a primary school in the southern county of Cork are being asked to bring their own toilet paper to school to help save money, one of the starkest examples yet of the death of Ireland‘s “Celtic Tiger” economy.” Half of the students have brought in rolls, according to reports, meaning that only half of the students have shitstains in their underwear.
