The Paper Chase

Discussing Christian history (strange how everyone wants to talk to me about it now thanks to the Hannah Singer books) and I learned this little tidbit.  You can't get mad at me for finding this funny:

During the Cold War, America was on it's "God and country" kick and decided to help the people of Romania see the light.  To that end, they sent 20,000 Bibles to Romania.

The Romanians used the Bibles as toilet paper.  Literally *.  There was a shortage in the country at the time.

*  I was originally going to write, "No shit," but, well, you know….
