On the educational properties of toilet paper

10 Feb

I bought a new brand of toilet paper last weekend. Technically, I guess, a new print – it’s still Kleenex.

This is a special Kids’ version, with a special feature. The print is puppy footprints (too adorable!) but every few squares there is a picture of a little guide dog puppy. The idea is that you educate your child on how much toilet paper to tear off, by teaching them to tear when  they see a puppy.

This should be a good thing in my house, where we seem to go through at least a roll a day.

Only problem is, apparently the artists at Kleenex did not know how big a sheet of toilet paper is. Sometimes the puppy is on the square where he is meant to be, but other times he goes across the tear line.

If puppy mutilations start to go up, I blame the educational toilet paper.
