CHICAGO -- Once in a while, the WGN Morning News team reads a story on-air that causes them to completely lose it. Well on Tuesday morning, it was one of those times.

WGN Morning News anchor Robin Baumgarten was reading a story about how toilet paper companies are cutting back. In fact, the size of a sheet is up to a half-inch narrower. And the cardboard tubes are also increasing in diameter so the companies can sell less paper for about the same paper.

It's called "de-sheeting," and that phrase cracked up the news team so much so that Robin couldn't finish reading the story.

"It is too bad that the 14-year-old boys have had to go to school today," anchor Larry Potash said, laughing through tears.

Watch the hilarity unfold in the clip above.
