While Colorado Springs, Colorado, continues to be terrorized by a female jogger who regularly defecates in residents yards, Proctor & Gamble’s Charmin offered some much needed assistance to local law enforcement by tweeting that they would give the jogger “free toilet paper for a year” if she turns herself in.
News about the defecating jogger, jokingly dubbed the “mad pooper,” spread quickly around social media. Photos of the woman, who appears in her 30s, have been pooping… er, popping up online with people wondering just why a woman would do this not once… but multiple times.
When one family initially reported the incident, many assumed that it was a targeted offense, but according to Lt. Howard Black of the Colorado Springs Police Department, the woman has actually been spreading her waste all throughout the neighborhood, the The Huffington Post reported.
While police have been asking residents to step in to assist in their search for the woman by taking photos so that she can be properly identified, Charmin…yes the toilet paper Charmin… came up with a different approach.
In a tweet from Charmin’s Official Twitter page, the company offered to give the jogger free toilet paper for a full year if she gave herself up.
“If the #MadPooper turns herself in, we’ll give her a year’s supply of TP to help with her ‘runs,’” the tweet read.
The company’s pun has been a big hit (if a groaner). So while it can be great bait for the woman herself… Charmin is gaining popularity on social media as a result. So it looks like a win-win all around.
Charmin responded to the praise saying, “We’ll do what it takes to wipe away this messy situation.”
Charmin then again tweeted saying that it is important to the company’s core values to help keep this woman’s defecation from spreading any further than it typically should. Saying, “We do whatever we can to be #1 when it comes to #2.”
This is absolutely epic and honestly, I would turn myself in just for the free offer. However, there’s the small matter of facing charges of indecent exposure and public defecation.
Also, toilet paper is free in jail.
