Iowa inmates wiping asses with toilet paper made by Missouri inmates

The new face of selling toilet paper isn’t a cartoon bear, cherubic baby or a totally unwatchable Zack Braff-voiced puppy. It’s Missouri’s murderers and rapists.

The prisoners in two Iowa clinks are wiping their bottoms with one-ply rolls created by inmates at Crossroads Correctional Facility in Cameron. And if officials like how the paper performs, they might make Iowa’s incarcerated make their own TP. As the director of Iowa Prison Industries notes, toilet paper is a “high-consumption item.”
