Original Patent Settles Toilet Paper Debate. I’m Looking at You, Husband.


Since the dawn of time (give or take some centuries) there have been two types of people:

Those who open the Oreo and lick the cream… and those who eat it whole.

Those who sweeten their tea… and those that would never.

Those who cough into their hand… and those who use their elbow.

Those who put the toilet paper on so it rolls under… and those WHO ARE RIGHT.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you this tweet from overall smarty pants and fun guy, Owen Williams:


Perforated toilet paper was originally patented in 1871, and when it was patented again in 1891 to include the “rolling” aspect of it, the pictures were clear about how it was designed to be used.


Debate over, people.

Pun intended.

    Yes! That is absolutely how it should be done! Thank you for proving I’m right, too!

    Why would you put the toilet paper the other way around? It makes no sense. It is always so hard to pull a piece off if the paper goes under. I am so glad that I have always been right. Yee ha! Hugs Mrs H xxxx
