Toilet Paper Guru Cleans Up Crappy Mess In New Jersey

The mayor of Newark, New Jersey, is cutting toilet paper from the city budget, but there's no need for city workers to feel down in the dumps.

MARGATE, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There’s a crappy mess brewing in New Jersey, but one businessman is rolling with the punches.

In an effort to close a $70 million deficit, Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, New Jersey, has announced plans to cut toilet paper from the city budget.

That means city employees may have to bring their own TP to work from now on, a idea Marc Polish of justtoiletpaper.com finds downright insulting.

Polish, who sells designer imprinted toilet tissue, feels that toilet paper is a right, not a privilege.

Thus, his small New Jersey-based company is getting behind local workers on this matter and supplying them with TP through giveaway contests and special promotions.

Polish says that whoever buys his four-pack of festive holiday toilet paper featuring Santa Claus will be given an extra roll for free.

This serves two purposes, since Mayor Booker also plans to cut down on Christmas decorations around the city this year too.
