Highly likely.

Five tons? Does that include the mud in which it became embedded in that bad winter of 1979?

New Australian law requires that all partners must say 'yes' out loud

Yabbut how are you going to prove anyone said it out loud? Does the law require everyone to make a sex tape, too?

The US Embassy in London is holding an online auction of items deemed surplus to requirements.

Bizarrely, one of the lots is two pallets of 100 x 12 toilet rolls.
Surely they'd be used in the normal course of events?
I wonder if perhaps they have a use by date on them.

No doubt used for diplomatic despatches.

At first I thought it was toilet paper.

Then I looked at the calculator on my desk.


2.25 inches wide.

I guess the rolls in the picture are 200 meters long, and the full rolls are 90mm in diameter. They would fit my calculator perfectly.

I think this line's mostly filler.

Nice thought, but it does appear that "Desna Mini Jumbos" are indeed toilet paper, despite the surprisingly narrow 2.25" width. Though I wouldn't put it past a large institution to have toilet paper tough and smooth enough to serve as calculator rolls.

Ha!

Well, that explains why they are surplus. WTF? 2.25 inches wide? You'll likely get poop on your fingers. Americans aren't going to put up with that.
