Stranded on the Bathroom Bowl

What do you do when you're stranded?
Stranded without a roll!
What do you do when you're stranded?
Stranded on the bathroom bowl!
Sorry, I was just breaking out in song over this bit of news. The city of Omaha is wanting the federal gubment to institute a 10 cent tax on every roll of toilet paper. This is to pay for "the metro area's $1.7 billion bill for federally mandated sewer improvements". According to the article, the work must be completed by 2024.

Now wait a minute. What bidness is it of the federal gubment to regulate the sewers of Omaha? And doncha just love it when these federal mandates end up costing the people on the receiving end billions of dollars?

This is just great! They already regulate how fast our toilets flush. Now they're gonna tax us for taking a good healthy sh*t! I guess if they could figure out a way to tax the oxygen we breathe, they'd do that too. Hey! It only makes sense! We breathe in oxygen and breathe out that vile CO2. Shame on us for breathing! Let's tax those vile humans!

Furthermore, why should they tax my ass for Omaha's sewers?


  1. Shhhh! Don't give them any ideas.
