Like many of you, I thought this was a joke, unfortunately it is not. It seems that there is a whole economy based on the ridiculous modern day stringencies posed by Rabbinical authorities who in my view should be more worried about mikvah molestation scandals then whether or not someone wipes their ass with toilet paper or tissues on shabbat.

The website hawking this product is a piece of work, it is reminiscent of latenight infomercials that try and convince you why you should purchase the Time Life best of hair metal 60 CD set.

Marketing ploys like claiming how ass wiping never felt so kosher and product testers claims of how people will break shabbos if not for such a product, are abundant on the website selling shabbos bathroom tissue.

“I like putting items in our home that remind us that we are Jewish and that it is Shabbos” -survey respondent

Don’t know about you, but I don’t really feel a Jewish connection to toilet paper?

My absolute favorite line on the entire website is the following:

“As an engineer involved in wastewater processing, I approve of something that’ll have more people in the frum community using toilet tissue instead of facial tissue in their toilets on Shabbos.” -survey respondent

"Wastewater engineer" Give me a fucking break!!!

On a side note I posted this on my blog and it sparked an interesting discussion 64 comments in length.
