Well, this is embarrassing! Somehow* our Victorian, New South Wales and Queensland warehouses ended up with toilet paper with a misprint on the packaging. Yup! We have boxes that say 2-ply and have the wrong wrappers (inside is actually our premium 3-ply bamboo TP). We didn’t want to throw them out, so we thought we’d turn our whoops into a whoopie!
So we’re bringing you a very special limited edition...with a FREE WHOOPIE cushion in every box!!!!
*It’s all Phil’s fault.
The box says 2-ply but it’s really 3-ply toilet paper. And the wrappers have the colourful recycled range patterns, but the TP is 100% bamboo. Rest assured, a severe punishment has been handed to the man responsible. Phil has personally tested over 100 whoopie cushions to ensure a surround sound experience.
Yes, you get a self-inflating whoopie cushion with every purchase. Why self-inflating? Because even jokers are too time poor to re-inflate their own cushions. Another key thing to note is, based on our rigorous user testing, you have about 36 farts worth of laughs, so look out grandma, we’re coming for you.

First, to clarify, this is actually our co-founder Danny’s mistake, but he said it was James’ (our head of logistics) fault. Then James said it was my fault, and whoever’s name is said last always gets blamed...
I discovered the whoops by text message. We made these wrappers because we were testing 2-ply bamboo toilet paper in the USA. We tested them briefly, but Danny messaged me one night saying we weren’t going to sell them there anymore. I was like, “but, but..noooo. We have a shed load of boxes and wrappers with 2 ply on them.”
Long story short, we ended up with a whole lotta the wrong packaging here in our Australian East Coast warehouses. And now everybody is picturing me in bike pants.
Like I just announced La La Land won. No, no, I mean Moonlight.
I make omelettes. Sometimes, eggs get broken.
Don’t trust Danny or James.
Not initially, but I wore them during whoopie cushion testing.
Own it. And if you can’t own it, run (in bike pants).
Phil’s only human, so if you’d like to make him feel better about his monumental mistake, please email him words of encouragement at email@example.com
