Company regrets printing bible quotes on toilet paper

Roll of toilet paper on  holder fixed to wall


Apparently Nordic countries routinely print uplifting and positive quotes on toilet paper. Says a spokeswoman for Metsa Tissue: “People like to read small, happy messages while sitting on the toilet.”

Metsa Tissue was trying to convey messages about love but accidentally included lines from the Gospel of Matthew and First Corinthians on toilet paper sold in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

The firm selected the quotes from Facebook submissions, including one from Jesus: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

The company claims that the majority of the feedback has been positive and they will continue the line but they’ll be more careful.
