That’s a shame. I feel so bad for them, I won’t even tell them about our colorful and printed versions of toilet paper.
How we make teeny tiny TP rolls for doll houses.
How there is so much TP here that we have to find new ways to store the rolls.
I won’t tell them that sometimes people have long discussions on the proper way to dispense toilet paper.
Maybe Sean Penn, Michael Moore, or that one black guy I can’t remember the name of that was in the Lethal Weapon movies, can pull some strings to have some sent to them in Cuba.
…What was that guy’s name?
Breitbart: A Cuban state media outlet confirmed last week that the nation’s capital, Havana, is suffering significant shortages of toilet paper. While the absence of common goods in the communist nation is not uncommon, such acknowledgment of a problem is rare.
The state newspaper Juventud Rebelde (“Rebellious Youth”) reported on Wednesday that toilet paper had “disappeared” from stores in Havana, announcing that the government’s state-run producer of toilet paper had acquired new machinery to generate toilet paper.
“They are not the super-machines, but they have an elevated technology level,” toilet paper engineer Manolo González García told the newspaper. One advantage of the new machines, he explains, is that they can simultaneously churn out two types of toilet paper rolls: a high-quality one for tourists, and an “ecological” one to sell to Cuban citizens.
The Miami-based Cuban news outlet Martí Noticias noted this week that Havana has suffered major shortages of toilet paper “for weeks” before Juventud Rebelde reported on them. Diario de Cuba adds that the Castro regime has begun importing higher numbers of toilet paper rolls from Vietnam while it adjusts its ability to produce the paper domestically, citing Spanish newswire service EFE. read more
