By the transitive property, is there such a thing as bog bacon? Does it go with a shower beer?

I strongly suspect this is a scam. I ordered toilet paper, had it billed to my CC, and it still hasn't arrived. I'm fresh out of alternatives and ideas. I've tried the recipe. It doesn't work either. Please help.

Spot on, garpu, spot on ... well it is for ordinary humans, but for HAWs it more a case of Defoliation :wink:

Have you tried the new tabloid version of THE GUARDIAN newspaper.
Cut or tear paper in half, place one half on top of t'other and tear again. Repeat process again.
Since the late 1800s, the Manchester Guardian was, and still is acknowledged as superior bog tissue.
Hope this helps.

Thanks, Vic, but I've already found the perfect solution. Here's the recipe:

A single square of tp folded twice to make a small square. Tear off the point, insert single digit, and there you have it - a re-usable forest product, free from defects, that will last forever.

Reduce. Re-use. Recycle.

You have to be careful, though, because some escalators are quicker than others ... and!!!! some of them are heading in the wrong direction!!! :shock:
