I’m sure there are some people who have a preferred brand of toilet paper, or at least think they do, but how many of us have actually been given an opportunity to compare and contrast various TPs in one
shitting sitting? That’s why I think this Dutch supermarket is on to something — the grocery store’s restroom is stocked with a wall of different brands of TP, all labeled, so you can pop a squat, do your business (personally, I think doing #2 would be the best test), and wipe away until they’ve settled on a fave. I’m not sure why this Dutch supermarket is so invested in helping customers find the best TP for their peeing and pooping needs, but I sure wish American grocery stores gave a shit. [Consumerist]
Charmin toilet paper ads usually include cute bears experiencing mishaps with toilet paper and eventually figuring out that Charmin is the best! This ad is a little bit different in that it is a butt. Literally, it is just a butt. A butt really close up so that the fold between pages looks like the ass crack. I guess the idea here is that if you use Charmin, your butt will be so clean that somebody could get that close? Honestly, I prefer the antics of the bears. [Buzzfeed]
Where did all the toilet paper go?
Cheap Chic Weddings announced Mimoza Haska as the winner of their ninth annual Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Contest on Thursday.
Congratulations to the southern hairdresser and stylist extraordinaire. The way you spun those 16 rolls of Charmin into a strapless, asymmetrical matrimonial gown is unlike anything we’ve ever seen. No, really.
Haska and the other two finalists were judged in New York City’s RK Bridal by Project Runway alum Kate Pankoke. Keep reading »
As you might expect, Beyonce’s recent revealed tour rider requests are hilarious. Titanium straws? Practical! Hand-carved ice balls! Amazing. But my favorite Sasha Fierce necessity has to be red toilet paper. Why? Again, whyyyyy? And where might someone buy red TP? Oh, not to worry, I did a little research, and it turns out a company called Renova makes not only crimson red toilet paper, but TP in a variety of bright colors. So now, if you’d like, you can wipe your ass like Beyonce. And it will only cost you $5.99 a roll! I can only imagine how fierce my vag and butt will feel afterwards. [Renova Shop]
Sibling roommates, Howard Meltzer, 67, and Bernice Meltzer, 72, ended up in jail this week because of an epic battle over their last roll of Charmin toilet paper.
According to Howard, Bernice stole the only remaining toilet paper roll in their home and locked herself in the bedroom with it, leaving him without anything to wipe with. For five hours, Howard waited at her door, screaming for her to give him back the toilet paper so he could use the bathroom.
“The roll was full when I went there in the morning … She unloaded a whole roll and left just a little, and when I looked up to the reserve, it wasn’t there. I said I want the toilet paper back by 1 [a.m.] or I’m calling the police,” Howard told the NY Post. Keep reading »
This is no Halloween prank: Massachusetts teens have officially broken the world toilet-paper-folding record. Students from the St. Mark’s School in Southborough completed 13 folds and 8,192 layers, beating a previous high school student’s record of 12 folds in 2002. The class was guided by their mathematics teacher James Tanton, who has waited seven years for a class to finally break the record.
The question is, how did they do it? According to BostInno.com, the students taped 64 layers of toilet paper the into a a sixth fold. They then mimicked those layers and folded the stack. The end result was 8,192 layers thick, 1.5 meters wide and 76 centimeters high. Read more…
