A girlfriend told me she went shopping yesterday and still couldn’t find any toilet paper on the shelves. My usual reaction to this is an eye roll and an under the breath sputter of “people be crazy”…. but this time I thought I’d do a little research.
It’s not an intestinal virus FFS! Why is everyone still hoarding the Charmin?
The average American uses 141 rolls a year?
Christ on a cracker, that’s 2.71 rolls a week… per person! My husband and I have only used 2 rolls in the last 3 weeks…. together.
What are you people doing with it….
Wallpapering the bathroom while you sit?
I was 9 years old during the embargo, so can someone please explain why toilet paper prices were raised? Did people use it as an alternate energy source?
If so, how many miles per roll did it get?
And speaking of alternatives….
A million dollars worth of bidet attachments in a day.
Take that Cottonelle!
So concludes my treatise on toilet paper.
But let me leave you with this… when you’re a writer researching a topic for an article? I’m not sure it gets any better than being able to quote a source named Tushy.
