It hadn’t reached the German Democratic Republic by 1978 Jussi March 14, 2020 at 5:50 pm Nokia started manufacturing toilet paper in 1902 in Nokia, Finland. Modern day crepe-two-fold variety in 1954. I asked my dad, there were no splinters between the two dates. This from a man who had his first coca-cola, banana and orange in 1952 during the Olympics. He can’t remember anyone mentioning any splinters.

Sturdy, almost like sand paper, so it doesn’t slide and smear and you don’t end up with your middle finger up the bum through the fancy and weak paper.

I’ll join one of those settlements in Eretz Israel, but oh dear it so expensive there comapared to Hungary…is it better have the Russkies next door or Palestinins (=no such thing exists, they are Trans-Jordanians caught behind the enemy lines). Jussi March 14, 2020 at 10:43 pm Sincere apologies for all the fucking grammatical errors, typos and the foul language too. I’m off to fucking bed! https://youtu.be/7jbf477OqjI Pcar March 15, 2020 at 1:30 am After USA Travel ban extended to UK CDC warns against travel within the US https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3QuSxnmHww There’s going be a lot of Christmas babies Pcar March 15, 2020 at 1:42 am @Jussi March 14, 2020 at 10:06 pm Vid: hmm, I don’t speak squiggle Addolff March 15, 2020 at 7:02 am Toilet paper for REAL men: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1G4CeynFwU BraveFart March 15, 2020 at 10:08 am If we followed the practices of our RoP friends there’d be no bog paper problem here (or in Venezuela). Water from a bucket next to the bog applied copiously to the arse crack with the filthy left hand. Or if you intend to shake the hand of the kuffar afterwards, use the right hand. Gamecock March 15, 2020 at 11:42 am Perhaps spring will come early and we’ll have a good supply of leaves on the trees. Thanks, Global Warming! jgh March 15, 2020 at 12:52 pm But to prevent run-away inflation due to the oversupply of leaves, we will have to devalue the leaf, and embark on a massive defoliation campaign. Clearly, all will agree that will be a sensible move. The Meissen Bison March 15, 2020 at 2:20 pm @jgh It strikes me that you may need to take a quick refresher on Green QE. In a nutshell, Elynomics prescribes moar leaf tax in such a situation as you depict. Pcar March 15, 2020 at 7:06 pm Morrisons 16:30 today No loo rolls or soap No UHT Milk No Pasta, Rice, baked beans, low pasta sauce, soup Low level of bread No carrots, parsnips, turnips, low potato No frozen veg BlokeInTejasInNormandy March 15, 2020 at 7:21 pm Carrefour Market Brionne (Normandy) yesterday (they close Sunday arvos): perfectly normal. RichardT March 15, 2020 at 9:32 pm Amusingly in Lidl on Friday, all the cheap loo roll had sold out, but they still had stacks of the more expensive stuff. Panic-buying but not taking it too far. Gamecock March 15, 2020 at 9:50 pm Amen, RichardT. I use the expensive stuff. Vast empty rack in Walmart last week, but my stuff was still there. I’m thinking about hitting local grocery and Walmart at OH Dark Thirty tomorrow. Not so much that I need stuff, as I want to see what it be like. Richard Bucket March 15, 2020 at 10:02 pm Waitrose was mostly normal. Although they had run out of those sachets that people use in their pseudo Italian coffee makers. Gluten free bread was running low too. And all the proper toilet paper had gone, just lots of single ply still available. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
