TP Emergency! December 3, 2008 9:25 am

The house is incredibly low on toilet paper! "Kids, we are rationing! Your choice is 2 squares a day! If you want more, you’ll need to sacrifice a Christmas present." Damned economy. Think I’ll write my Senator and ask for a bailout. "Dear Senator, I need 32 rolls of Charmin. It costs $5.6 million. Thank you!"

Just don’t ride up to Congress on your own private toilet. They hate that.

I was just having this discussion with a coworker, apparently TP in india is considered a luxury… at $1 per roll. To put that into perspective they pay their fathers caretaker $15/week!

The alternative? Is it a “never shake with the left hand” thing? Or is a bidet the default?

And the $15/$1 certainly puts the luxury in perspective!
