    The only useful thing on there is the donation to feed shelter animals. All these people can afford their own shit.

    Swiss-made toilet paper by Joseph’s Toiletries, $275.

    Where miracles begin

    It all started with a single insight - we all want to be clean and healthy - but don’t have the right products.

    Inspired by the Asian cleansing rituals, a Swiss based team of dermatologists, beauty care experts and papermakers began their quest to transform Western toilet hygiene into a routine of profound cleansing and caring.

    Health consciousness and the quality of skincare evolved in every aspect of modern living - except when it comes to toilet paper and the way it is used since 150 years.

    “Wash your hands before you eat” Mother always said.


    It is a great contradiction that our daily rituals naturally consist of “cleansing with water & soap, then rehydrating with cream” when our toilet cleansing habits still remain inefficient, unclean and unhygienic because of the dry use of toilet paper. Additional cleansing products such as wet wipes remain dermatologically and ecologically controversial, as people with sensitive skin often get irritations or allergic reactions and the use is very limited due to its structure which does not disperse as easily in water as toilet paper.

    With the vision of elevating toilet hygiene to beauty care, a devotion to perfection and more than 50 years of knowledge in personal care and hygiene products JOSEPH’S Toiletries sets a new standard for contemporary personal hygiene and health.

    The first single-sheet-product which really holds its promise, no matter if used in dry or moist condition. Each thick, strong and absorbent enough to suffice. Soft and fluffy like a cloud, eco-friendly and fully flushable.

    To conveniently integrate the use of the treatments into the toilet routine, JOSEPH’S Toiletries created a new generation of toilet paper.

    A specially woven, vitamin-coated outer layer provides maximum security and skin protection in moist condition while a soft-fluffed inner core adds optimal absorption and plush softness.

    The dendritic structure of the inner core provides optimal absorption while the outer layers act as moisture barrier for wet use. The ultra-gentle quilted surface provides profound softness.

    A new hybrid. The first single-sheet-product which really holds its promise, no matter if used in dry or moist condition. Each thick, strong and absorbent enough to suffice. Soft and fluffy like a cloud, eco-friendly and fully flushable. To conveniently integrate the use of the treatments into the toilet routine, JOSEPH’S Toiletries created a new generation of toilet paper. A specially woven, vitamin-coated outer layer provides maximum security and skin protection in moist condition while a soft-fluffed inner core adds optimal absorption and plush softness. The JOSEPH’S Toiletries Tissue is made of 100% tender virgin new-growth cellulose fibres without any additives like binders or chemicals mostly used in wet wipes to both avoid irritations on sensitive skin and harming the sewage systems as well as our environment.


    • 25 individual sheets per package


    All raw materials are FSC and PEFC certified and in compliance with forest conservation regulations to ensure the product is sustainable as it is desirable. JOSEPH’S Toiletries toilet paper is accompanied with two treatments in order to introduce the most skin-friendly concept of pure cleansing and exceptional skin care to toilet hygiene.
    This timeless design holds the tissues and the two treatments in the most stylish way, taking your JOSEPH’S experience to the next level. Handcrafted in gold patina brass, stainless or polished steel, hand-wrapped leather and natural warped precious woods.
    The Joséphier will be delivered with an adhesive adapter, to easily fix and remove it to any non-porous surface without leaving any marks. Alternatively, it can be mechanically mounted to all other types of surfaces.








    alrighty then.

    I think I'll still pass, and go for the Chapstick. Is it flavored?

    I'd feel like an ass accepting that. I would try to donate what I could from it. Except for the Chapstick. I'm giving that to Brookie.

    Hydroxycut gummies? Really? That is funny.

    What a bunch of random stuff. I would donate it too -- or auction it off and raise money for another charitable cause. The pet shelter thing is cool though.

    According to this article: 'Farm Wife Style' Jewelry Heads To Grammys, Oscars, it's handmade on a Canadian farm (Alberta to be exact).

    Oscar peeps are getting these: Farm Wife Style - Canadian Handmade Jewellery

    and Grammy peeps these: Farm Wife Style - Canadian Handmade Jewellery

    Not my type of jewelry, but between the two, I'd choose the Grammy necklace w/ the thunderbolt.

    Y'all can have the chapstick. I'll take the Audi, and the trips to Israel and Japan (total $154.000) thank you very much.
    Also, I want to know exactly how many single sheets of toilet paper you get for $275.

    ETA: I just checked, and you get 7 x 25 sheets of toilet paper plus 2 bottles of 'gentle cleaner' and 2 bottles of 'balancing care'. All in a gold trimmed box made of recycled materials. It's called 'The Welcomer' and lauded as 2 months worth of toilet paper, which amounts to 2,9 sheets per day.

    Ok, so this swag only goes to the acting and directing category nominees. The ones who are probably making the most money anyway. And of the 5.5 million worth of crap they get, only one is a charitable donation in their names (Halo, the pet food company) which totals about $157k.

    Glad to hear Leo will be getting that much-needed breast lift though.
