Since we're getting into personal preferences -- toilet paper?

    I'm Scott 1,000-sheet roll kind of guy.

    Charmin and Cottonelle -- they're just too darn thick and soft to get the job done right the first time.

    Sorry, guys. I wasn't really expecting responses.

    I was just taking a friendly poke at the silly condom thread -- I thought everyone would get it.

    I guess I was too subtle; wow, first time THAT'S ever happened.

  6. A most serious issue, indeed! :rolleyes:

    It is toilet paper and NOT the opposing thumb which separates us from the animals! :D

    Yeah, you joke - but I for one take the matter very seriously :D

    I, too, am a Scott single-ply kinda guy. We have two bathrooms at my house and one is stocked with Charmin for my wife, while the other is equipped with my trusty Scott jumbo rolls.

    We don't have the problem at our house, but my wife and I HUGELY disagree on how you're supposed to hang the roll.

    She says it should go with the top of the roll going toward the wall, so the paper hangs down behind the roller.

    I say it should go "overhand," with the paper hanging in front.

    Sometimes I even fold the end in a little triangle, like they do at hotels, just to really piss her off.

    Hey...that could be a valuable alternate career skill...(the triangle folding thing, not pissing off my wife -- not much money in that.)


    P.S. Could this become THE silly thread o' the week, approaching the popularity of Dave Siff's vaunted "Bacon Appreciation Thread" last week?

    Dare to dream, dare to dream...
  13. what's toilet paper?:confused:

    Toilet paper.

    I don't even want to think about what the next thread will be...
  16. I wipe with whatever's around. It's too bad I ran out of Charmin that one day and my dog was all that was around...

    It was a Poodle, now it's a ****zu.

    Pretty boring around here without political threads, ain't it?

    If we don't adopt a national forest replenishment agenda that makes sense pronto , my wife's toilet paper usage alone will have us in crises pretty soon. :eek:

    Oh, and I'm a Cottonelle guy too. Love the ribbed double roll. See, to me thicker is better, 'cause when you're really diggin' in, you don't want to be pushing a finger through the paper at just the wrong moment. Dig?

    And hang it with the paper over the roll please.
