This illustration released by Antonio Battaglia shows toilet paper wrapped in mock-up packaging, featuring a cartoon image in the likeness of President Donald Trump, with the Spanish phrases "Softness without borders," center, "This supports migrants," top right, "Four pure rolls," bottom right, which is a play on words in Spanish that roughly translates as "Pure nonsense." Battaglia, a corporate lawyer, said his idea for “Trump” toilet paper came after Donald Trump’s comments characterizing migrants who enter the U.S. illegally as criminals, drug runners and rapists offended many Mexicans. "My thinking was: We can’t keep quiet, right? ... So with this insult that was made, (I figured) I’m going to add my grain of sand in response.” (Antonio Battaglia via AP)

A Mexican businessman plans to sell Trump toilet paper in his home country

WATCH | The "wall" that Mexicans will actually pay for.

Talking about being full of... well, you know. 

Antonio Battaglia, a lawyer from Mexico, is planning on launching a brand of Donald Trump-themed toilet paper in Mexico later in 2017.

A mock up of the toilet paper's packaging shows a roll with a pretty familiar coif of blonde hair atop its cartoon visage.  

The toilet paper will reportedly be sold in limited runs later in 2017, and will include such gems of marketing slogans as "Softness without borders" and "This is the wall that, yes, we will pay for." 

Battaglia has also reportedly told media organizations that he plans on donating 30 percent of the toilet paper's proceeds to groups working to help migrants entering into the United States.

The announcement has prompted a slew of puns on social media.
