World Toilet Day

It's true! November 19th is World Toilet Day! The serious thought behind it is to draw attention to the billions who don't have good sanitation, something that we usually just take for granted. There's a website, here.


As well as the serious stuff, there are cartoons and quizzes. E.g., What kind of toilet paper are you? I am, apparently, a dried leaf. I don't care. It will make a certain Bear very proud, I'm sure.




what kind of TOILET PAPER are you?

You scored as dead leaves

That's right. When it comes to toilet paper, you're a pile of dead leaves. You're curious, ethereal, and spiritual. You love to challenge traditional philosophies. And because you're so environmentally conscious, you never take from Mother Earth what you can't give back.

Apparently I scored as a quilted toilet paper:

That's correct. You're the fancy, quilted kind of toilet paper, like in the Charmin commercials. You're a smooth talker with a gregarious personality. But with your flattering nature, people may accuse you of wiping other people's...feet.

Charmin, eh ... better not tell Bob

No! Not Charmin! No!

LOL!

I'm slightly disturbed by being "19% empty roll".

Mind you, I do have days when I feel a bit like that...

I'm under-dispensing toilet paper.

That's right, you're under-dispensing toilet paper, the kind that dangles behind the roll, close to the wall. You're reflective, analytical, and thoughtful, full of deep and fascinating thoughts. People may get frustrated because you're not very accessible. But your protective nature keeps you from getting ripped off.

Hmm... I can be a bit paranoid. (eyes wide open glancing around)

Oh my....

I scored as an empty roll!!
That's right, my friend. Your life is like an empty roll of toilet paper. See, you're bold, spontaneous, and adventurous. You always have a story to tell. However, you tend to take risks without evaluating your resources. And that often leaves you with a huge mess on your hands.

Chewy,

I wondered what they meant by 'under-dispensing'. I hang my rolls that way- with the opening near the wall. I had no idea that was wrong! Well you learn something new every day!

Rachelle,

"a huge mess on your hands" !!! Oh, gross!! LOL!
