LOL.

While we're on that subject, friendly reminder to everyone not to flush wipes, paper towels, christmas napkins or whatever other tp improv you end up using, it will mess up your plumbing.

If you find yourself in short supply with none available at the store, you can extend what you have extensively with this simple strategy.

When you finish your job, tear off one square of TP and fold it in half, then fold it in half again so you can tear of the corner where the center of the sheet comes together to form a hole large enough to slip your middle finger through.

Use this finger to clean up the mess and gather the remaining segments to slide over the finger to remove the residue and use the hole you tore off to clean under your fingernail.

That should put you in a position that washing your hands will get you ready for the next job.

Keep in mind that if you have a squeamish partner you live with, this operation can be accomplished by any willing   volunteer.


I do hope people are taking this as a joke or sarcasm because your idea is gross and sickening.

That is entirely up to them. It would not bother me one bit if someone wanted to try it, as long as they don't do it in my house and make a big mess.

LOL that is funny.  You definetly will wash your hands after that.  I figure we will be using old rags pretty soon.  Which is fine with me I need to get rid of them anyway.

That was funny. I grew up in a fun family who was always telling jokes like that. You have to have a good sense of humor in this day and age :)

I heard that joke while I was in the Army back in the early 60's

      Buy two-ply paper towels.
      You can always separate them.
      And make it one-ply.

Are you kidding? I buy two-ply and fold it to double or triple when I blow my nose.
