I mean, I, for one, am very happy at it's invention. What did they use before?
Leaves? What if if was a poisonous leaf? Or was it something that had to be washed and reused? One's hand? Eww, yeah, that sounds worse than leaves.
Anyway, you are about to find out because here are some interesting facts about, you guessed it, toilet tissue-
Boston Standard | Plumbing, Heating & Cooling
'Americans use 50% more toilet paper than other Western societies'
I think most is used by our government because they are so full of....
'Americans also prefer multi-ply paper'
Because we have delicate bums? Because double duty is more reliable? <(hahahaha! I said doodie :) does that ever get old? Not rhetorical.)
I really don't want to think any further about either of those. Both sound quite painful.
'Over or under?'
Guess I'm one of those 2/3s <((haha, say it like an Irishman!
Yes, it may get worse so put on your Wellies!)
Thank you, Mr. Gayetty, in that great water closet in the sky, or wherever your energy may reside.
Geesus, were we 'behind' the times!
(I warned you it would get worse *smirk*)
I love trees, but what's a person to do(doo)?
(Yeah, scraping the 'bottom' with that one....*sigh*
K, not proud. There are puns and then there are 'buns'<(it's all in the lines, above or below.) hahaha! yeah :| )
Think of the money you could save, though, if you used natural alternatives! But I suppose that wouldn't really be cost effective since then you'd have to pay a plumber. Yeah, those corncobs could cause an obstruction.
Oh Canada, what would you do without us?
So I could go on and on, like the Swedish criminal that breaks into people's apartments, poos in their toilets and does not flush, and the professional poo diver that loves his job, or the company that makes chocolate bathroom fixtures, but I won't.
Just, today, when you must go potty, give a thought to those who forged the way for us, and give thanks for the invention of toilet tissue...and indoor plumbing, but it's not National Indoor Plumbing Day.
