try this one

John Wayne toilet paper (not politically correct)

Back in the days of cowboys and Indians, toilet paper had just been invented.An Indian, unaware of the new invention, was amazed when he saw a cowboy using it out in the woods.Instead of scalping the cowboy, he offers to let him live if he tells the Indian where he can get some toilet paper.And the cowboy told the Indian about a trading post in the middle of the forest.The next day, the Indian was looking over the different types of toilet paper and asked the clerk how much the “Soft and Gentle” was.“That'd be $2.50,” said the clerk.“Too much,” mumbled the Indian, “how about the 'Gentle'?” “That one's $2,” answered the clerk.“Still too much,” complained the Indian, “anything cheaper?”“Welllll,” replied the clerk, “We do have a generic kind.” “What generic mean?” asked the Indian.“It means it doesn't have a name, and it's only 50 cents.” “Me take that,” said the Indian.The next day, the Indian returns to the trading post and tells the clerk, “Me have name for generic toilet paper.” “Oh,” says the clerk, “what's the name?”“Me call it John Wayne... it's rough, tough and it take no crap from Indian.”

Quilted Northern here.....feels good! :rolling:


Watch that quilted northern. Guy who did my septic tank said that is the absolute worst toilet paper to use. It's so thick it doesn't dissolve.

All that marketing jargon is almost enough to irritate me. I just grab the first pack that seems reasonable.

And the toilet makers are in on it. Have you ever tried to flush newspaper down?!!

 

I've got one they advertise as being able to flush 25 golf balls. The other one flushes with so much force it's scary. Should have a warning tag on it stating that you need to be at least 14 years of age or accompanied by an adult. I love these toilets.

It's a shame you can't try before you buy.

 

Never shop with Jeff in the toilet paper aisle... you may learn things you really didn't want to see.

I do the same it's the sq.inches or sheet count that matters. I don't do much of the grocery shopping. I just found out last week that a 5lb. bag of sugar is now 4lb. I asked my wife how long has this been happening & she said about two years :(

Anything more absorbent than Saran Wrap, less abrasive than sandpaper, has a break thru strength greater than I can exert, and NO BARK.

I do the same it's the sq.inches or sheet count that matters.

So . . .   you divide the sale price by the number of sheets in a package and then divide that by the number of plys?  Then multiply by the ratio of Daniel's pleasure(Where do I find that on the package?)

Has anyone tried used dryer sheets?
