Quilted Northern Commercial - Blame It on the Equipment
This has been fixed in recent airings, but it was pretty hard to miss for the several weeks it aired. In the original animated commercial for Quilted Northern Tissue, a group of women were supposed to be showing the new gal the ropes about quilting the t.p. The gaffe was that all of the women were using huge knitting needles to do their "quilting", rather than a quilting needle and thread. Maybe they were knitting teeny sweaters ...

You're right. Does any body else think these commercials are getting a little too disgusting? It's toilet paper for cryin' out loud! all this talk about "leaving you fresh and clean"......who really needs a commercial for toilet paper, any way? I mean, does any body think that people would stop buying toilet paper if it wasn't advertised? "Gee if only I had something to wipe with....." And I also love how now it's 'bathroom tissue'. What, did they decide that 'toilet paper' was too politically incorrect? I can see the Reverend Jackson now..........

Even worse are the ads when the ladies discuss the "lint" problem other toilet paper has. Nice mental image. P.S. Television is notorious for avoiding toilets- on the Brady Bunch all 6 kids shared one bathroom with no toilet. Their backyard must have really stunk. :)

Whatever you want to call it, you can use it for more than, you know. If you cut yourself while shaving, what do you reach for? They're probably calling it bathroom tissue now to include that there are other uses. Besides, wouldn't you rather soothe your shaving cuts with a soft quilted piece than a cheap stiff brand?

Of course you need toilet paper. But not always for the unmentionable. After my sister takes her shower, so I can start mine, I have to clean out the tub (because she doesnt know how -holds in laugh-) im not surprised, she doesnt even know my first name (no she's not mental in anyway, so that makes it sadder). And I have to get a piece of "bathroom tissue" to get her hair out of the drain. ugh there goes breakfast.....I use tissue for other things too. Oh, yo don't wanna know? ok.
