Toilet Paper-Hoarding Is "Absolutely Fantastic" and "So Cool"

Amanda has a Toilet Paper Room in her house (to be fair it looks more like several toilet paper towers in a storage room, but whatever), where she keeps 40 years worth of toilet paper. (That's 3,000 rolls, which, if you do the math, comes out to 75 rolls a year, or 6 1/4 a month. Is that your pace, too?) Her buddy Nathan is loving it.

This is from the TLC show Extreme Couponing, which is like Hoarders' tidy but equally neurotic and terrifying cousin. And then also the prudish older sister of that show with the woman who eats toilet paper. Remember how our brains are shrinking and people aren't sure whether we're getting stupider or just more gentle? I keep thinking about that, like, "which is the answer?!"

Am I the only one with very specific brand loyalty to my t.p.? Northern FTW! But regular only, please - that Ultra Plush is too thick to cram between my cheeks. It's like wiping with a blanket.

Also, beware of Cottonelle - soft, yes, but alarmingly dingleberry-inducing.


Mar-SAL, or Mar-CAL?? How many will admit to picturing those two having sex on that pile of TP after the crew has left?

I have a friend - NO REALLY, A FRIEND - who is obsessed with paper towels. We clearly have a new favorite show on our hands.


Has anyone seen the new Quilted Northern commercials? Of all the ways to market your brand of toilet paper, "women speaking frankly about their number 2 experience using thinly-veiled innuendo" is really not the way to go, guys.

Also, the Luvs Double Dooty diaper commercial that's like American Idol where the babies compete to have the biggest load in their diapers? It's not okay just because it's animated.

In Simon Doonan's book, Eccentric Glamour he wrote something along the lines of: When you find your signature lipstick color you should buy cases of it so if it's discontinued you'll always have it. Then you can watch the years of your life dwindle away each time you take one out of the box.

Even bleaker with TP.


Single people by TP one roll at a time because they have no future.
