(Newser) – Congratulations to the guys in the Public Works Department of tiny Windsor, Missouri: They can stop bringing their own toilet paper to work, reports KCTV via Raw Story. It seems an overzealous bean counter determined that the men were using way too much and cut them off entirely. The mayor and city council learned of it when a concerned citizen came forward at a council meeting and asked to start a fundraiser to pay for the guys' relief. “I was just really incredulous that this was a topic to be brought up at a City Hall meeting, much less have any truth to it,” says the mayor. The council quickly restored funding.

Use congressmen and senators. They're all asswipes. On second thought, I wouldn't want to contaminate my own ass.
