Before I get into Sh-tter, the Twitter Toilet Paper (and yes, it is a real product!), I need to share a quick story. You see, this is not my first experience with novelty toilet paper. After college my friend made extra money by advertising moving services on Craigslist, and somehow a bunch of us got sucked into helping. One of our jobs was to pack a U-Haul for a grad student who was moving, and his biggest concern was packing the room full of “Sh*t-Be-Gone” toilet paper he was selling. It is the only time in my life someone has ever said “This is toilet paper. But please, treat it as though it is glass.”
However, even Sh*t-Be-Gone can’t hold a candle to Sh-tter. If you’ve ever declared that your worst enemy/least favorite politician has opinions that aren’t worth wiping your own behind with, well, good news. Now you can test that, with a roll of toilet paper printed with someone’s twitter stream!
Businessweek did an interview with the creators of the product, and true to form they asked the hard questions:
Yes, this is a real product. Finally, the issue of reading material in the bathroom has been solved! Plus, how could you NOT want to change the toilet paper, knowing there’s a whole new Twitter stream to read! If you have some extra money burning a hole in your pocket, or a friend with a bathroom humor streak, you can order a roll here!
