Automatic TP Dispenser

I’ve got to say that I’m disturbed by the arrogance Kimberly-Clark folks are showing in this article about their new automatic TP dispenser. That’s right – automatic. It spits out 5 sheets, no more, no less.

Of course you can get more paper, but you’ll have to coax the machine into giving it to you. And really, when you’re using TP, don’t you have more important things to worry about?

The only bright spot in this article, though, is the mention of the “touchless bathroom”. It’s portrayed as this wonderful, futuristic thing that in reality isn’t that far away. But if it’s truly touchless, you know what that means: bidets.

I once knew a junkie who would steal anything. One time she five finger discounted one of those giant tp rolls out of the little girl’s room. This gadget looks like a good thing because it means that paper will be there when you need it.

That reminds me of the time my friend’s mom stole one of the giant TP rolls so we could TP someone’s house. She also let us get drunk at her house, so maybe not the best mom. But we sure thought she was cool back then.

What is this then?
