A Solution For Keetha and Friends...

Click to enlarge...





If you'll visit Keetha's blog and do a bit of scrolling you'll discover that she, as a certified science geek, has conducted a completely unbiased (cough) scientific survey on whether toilet paper should come off the top of the roll or down behind. Her survey raised some very strong opposing opinions in her readership, but Keetha herself managed to stay completely detached and unemotional.

Or maybe not...See? She wrote about it here. And here and here and (so far) HERE. On vacation.

Science geeks. Sheesh!


Heh-heh-heh!

I have very strong and passionate beliefs about this subject (I prefer my paper off the top, and I'll fight you to the death about it *G*)... so, I'll have to go look.

Actually, Groovy, I don’t think I hold strong views on this subject, but it’s obvious to me that it MUST come from the top.

I put quite a lot of time and effort into getting our toilet paper looking just right and coming away from the dispenser in a very neat and orderly fashion. I mean, one must be precise with the straight edges and corners, everything must line up perfectly… so knowing how anal I am about such things (yes that pun was on purpose) I guess it won’t be hard for you to picture me at the kitchen table with last year’s telephone book cutting the pages into squares of exactly 4.5 by 3.5 inches (accepted standard for toilet paper sheet size) and, when I have a pile of exactly 1,000 (accepted standard for single ply toilet rolls), drilling a hole in one corner right through the pile of sheets and threading a piece of twine and looping it together with a little (neat) knot. Then it hangs on the stainless steel nail that I’ve placed in the outside dunny (Aussie for restroom) for that very purpose.

So if anyone should DARE to take a sheet from anywhere in that pile of sheets, hanging there for the convenience of the user, other than the top sheet, then they better learn how to go to the bathroom the way Bears do because they won’t be welcome in my dunny ever again.

lol sushi has just decided to go with me on this one, we have it come from the top, I do change it at my mom's house every time I go there but I'm not sure if it bugs anyone but me when it's not right.

I LOVE that you did this post!!!! When I get home from vacation I'm going to put this cartoon, which I will of course steal from you, on my blog!!!!! Right now I have just too many restaurant, fishing, and sunset pictures to deal with.

I especially LOVE that you all can be so WRONG in the way you let your paper hang, and still be so HAPPY!!!!

Hehehehehehehe

From the top is the only way for me. It's an aesthetic thing. I'm funny like that!
