Canada's Senate is looking for a new towel supplier, and it's no small order.
As first reported by Metro News, companies have been invited to bid on a government contract to supply the upper chamber with linens for the next three to five years. The job is worth up to $85,000.
The contract, which was posted on the government's procurement website, states that the Senate requires 125 dish cloths, 500 hand towels, and 1,500 bath towels. (Towels must be 100% cotton, natch.)
But that's just the inventory.
Why the hell do Canadian Senators need so many damn towels?
