You know, back when I used to read the column by that fascist Ann Landers, she would frequently refer to a raging debate about this. Can't people find something more constructive to argue about? :)

If that's a burning question, maybe you should go see a doctor...

Did any of you hear about some tp that (I think) Kimberly-Clark is making something so that when you pull the paper, it gets nice and moist?

Over or on a stand to the left.

Monica - guess that paper will be like baby wipes, but for bigger butts.

Under. When you hang it over, every time you pull it with just one hand, it breaks after a sheet or two.

You people are so inflexible. How you hang the paper depends upon the height of the dispenser. If it's low, like mine, then it needs to be over. If it's high, then the paper is more conveniently fed under.

Why do people get so uptight about this? I'm truly baffled.

What is this an episode of Oprah? oh wait Paul you are from Chicago.

Maybe Paul IS Oprah in disguise.

Rob: that was just wrong.
