Due to the nationwide shortage of toilet paper, I feel it’s necessary to share a little history.
As well as a helpful alternative in these troubling times.
You know the old saying, “When in Rome?”
The Ancient Romans were never bothered by a lack of tripe ply Charmin.
Not when they had their handy tersoriums.
I’ll pause for a moment to let you conjure a mental image of using one the next time you pay a visit.
Alright then…. moving on.
Death by lion…. or swallowing a tersorium?
Sorry, but I’m going with the lion every time.
And in case you’re interested?
You should be thanking this man that you’re not outside searching for a stick right now.
Joseph C. Gayetty.
The inventor of modern toilet paper.
No thank you.
But if the Covid shortage continues, we’re all going to wish the Sears catalog was still being printed.
And now that I think about it….
Maybe I need to check the husband’s barn for this stuff. If anyone has some, it will be my other half.
Far be it for me to woo my own destruction.
