I wish I could say I was making this up, but:

I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required

I considered using one of her albums to replace toilet paper, but the album was already full of crap...

Having spent some time abroad I have to reiterate my disdain for the "smear culture" we have here in the US. Bidet is the answer to cleanliness! Then you use less paper too. But without a wash, I think doing 1 sheet it'd have to be 4 or 5 ply at least

Dear Cheryl:

You can do better than that. Carry a towel in a plastic bag in your purse. A good old fashioned cotton towel! It can be used over and over and over again.

Signed,

Heloise

PS ... when going out for Tex/Mex ..... substitute plain cotton for NOMEX; I do!

One square......I cant think of anything, other than to soak up a razor cut, that one square is good for much less taking care of serious business.

Note to self: Sheryl Crow has a dirty stinky hiney; we now know the real reason Lance dumped her!

"If it makes you crappyyyyyyyyy, it can't be that baaaaaaaaaaaad"
"All I wanna do is wipe my bum, but I can't cos I already used one"
"IIIIIIIIIII wanna wipe off my buuummmm but I used my square so instead I'll use my thuuuummb"

Yeah, I could go with only one square. Now please excuse me while I replace my tp holder with one of those HP Designjet tp holders.

And she says this as she randomly drives a bus around the country. She justifies this by saying that it runs on biodiesel. Last I checked, bio diesel emmited just as much pollutant as regular diesel. The fact that it's renewable doesn't mean it's clean.

WARNING: Graphic Photo

Rosie to Sheryl Crow: "Have You Seen My Ass?"

The answer, presumably, is no -- but Rosie made her point, pooh-poohing Sheryl Crow for suggesting that we all use just one square of toilet paper per trip to the loo.

Crow made her comments on her blog last week, and Rosie took a moment on this morning's "The View" to express her incredulity at the supposedly enviro-friendly suggestion. "Have you seen my ass?!" bellowed Rosie, and Barbara Walters was good enough to warn viewers not to use their sleeves, another of Crow's helpful suggestions.

Yeah, what the hell was up with that dining sleeve idea? Sure, paper napkins can be wasteful, but don't tell me she hasn't ever heard of CLOTH napkins? And you can actually leave those at the table and not have to wear your food. Blech.

The original purpose of napkin rings was to identify cloth napkins at a table, as they would be re-used for the week until laundry day. We do the same at home, except instead of monogrammed rings, we all have a different block print so we know whose is whose (my napkins are red and white, husband's are blue and white, etc.).

I shouldn't admit this... but having only skimmed rapidly... and not having any more context than provided in that blurb I just posted... I thought the sleeve was being proposed as an alternative for the single piece of TOILET PAPER!? Talk about "blech." :

btw, I neglected to properly source the Rosie blurb. You've probably figured out from preceding paragraph that I didn't make this s**t up (no pun intended), but just in case:

Ha ha ... no, she said she has designed a line of clothing that comes with detachable sleeves. You eat and wipe your mouth on your sleeve, then when you're done, switch out the dirty sleeve for a clean one.

It is really and truly the most asinine thing I've ever heard of.

Never mind cholera coats

Another 'green' Tudor idea: Trenchers eliminate dishwashing waste.

OMG! Rosie probably just uses the whole roll! : HAHA! But really if miss Crow wants an alternative to TP this problem was solved generations ago. Resourceful old country folk stocked the outhouse with corncobs from the dinner table or maybe one of those fancy "high falutin" Sears and Roebucks cataloges. You can even use leaves but just beware of poison oak and nettles and such..... I like toilet paper.... it's a good thing!
Maybe she would feel better about if the TP was made from hemp.... AFTER SMOKIN' A FEW SQUARES!!!!!!!!!!!

The French solved this problem a long time ago, and might I add with better results than even the best toilet paper. The Bidet...but that does still pose a problem if one were to have a party or even a few guests....I dont think people would enjoy sharing the towel used to dry ones rump.
