Don't you just want to slap the bitch for dissing Ruth's mothering skills? Oh, sorry, that's just me.

This seems to have been a popular thread running through toilet paper ads of old: women are falling down on the job if they don't select the perfect ass-wipes for their family. This concept bothers me.

I know I judge people based on their toilet paper when I go to their house. I just visited some people in Normandy who had double ply - a rare commodity in France. Obviously they're people of discerning taste.

I spent so much of my money on premium toilet paper that I was completely wiped out. Thank you, I'll be here all week! Try the veal!
