Turns out, I’m something of an expert

The picture is from a blog post from March, 2009 about toilet paper hoarding. As you can see, our brand of choice in 2009 was Velvet – that’s the one with the creepy little-boy-in-a-suit mascot. Yeah, I posted about him, too. Also, ecologically responsible toilet paper.

And don’t get me started on the number of times I’ve posted about toilets.

Let’s face it: I’m a sophisticate.

Anyway, I went looking down back in the Museum of Toilet Paper, where there are old packets of Andrex stashed. No, they did NOT used emboss puppies on the product. I was sure I would have noticed that.

So, instead of a wine cellar, Badger House has a toilet paper room?

“Ah, yes, the 2005 triple ply Velvet, that was a really good year. White, scented with hints of rosewater and cypress with a smooth soft finish.”

A toilet paper company could probably turn a nice profit selling paper with the embossed faces of a few select politicians. I’d pay a bit extra for Xi Jinping, or perhaps Justin Turdeau¹. But I’d be afraid Nicolás Maduro would try to nationalize my ass.

1. That’s not a typo.

We’ve bought toilet tissue by the case for decades (because JavaMan worked in the janitorial/custodial supplies industry), so we had just gone into a case of 90 rolls when the shortages hit, and last week he divided the remaining dozen rolls among the three potty storage cabinets. Plus JavaMan bought another case a few weeks ago from the company he used to work for—where they still give him employee pricing 🙂

But we don’t have the room to buy cases of paper towels and dinner napkins like we used to do. Man it kills me to pay retail for paper towels!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
