Send In The Clones.

I need some clones, please. Even with the help of Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, I'm struggling to keep up.

Been going on a tour that is the irony of ironies and I keep noticing a photo of myself all over the internet.  In the meantime, while I go searching for some clone-type help, I shall leave you with a short posting.
Yes that bummer, butt oh so important question I've posed before.  When I say "posed" as in asked the question.  The toilet paper this way?  
Or this way?
Or oops!  I really need some clones right about now!

While you're contemplating such important questions.  I shall leave you with the theme music to "Jeopardy!"    See ya and this posting has reached the bottom, so to speak.....

  1. You're in luck - I have a clone machine!
    Glad you enjoyed seeing your mug everywhere (as much as you could, of course) and understand that a lot of friendship and honor went into our posts.

    1. Hi Alex,

      Yes, that was a subtle cry for help from you. I need to have you clone your clone machine.

      Seeing my mug all over the place was a nice, thoughtful gesture. And yes, beyond the irony, was the friendship we all share. That is an honour and thank you, kind sir.

  2. Yes, he have the clone machine. The only one that works at this time. Dragon had one but it blew up because of Mark Koopman's fault, hahahha. If you were to wait for it to be repaired, your legs would go numbed waiting in that toilet. Don't recommend it. :)

    1. Hi Al,

      I would anxiously wait for the repair of your clone machine. Numb legs might well be worth it. I think Mark Koopman should take the blame for a number of things lately :)

  3. Do you remember back in the 60's when toilet paper was decorated? If you unrolled it to the back, you couldn't see the pretty checks or birdies. So it HAD to be rolled OVER the top and outward. That's how I know the CORRECT way. So there.

    I'm outta here. Got the runs. I mean, I've gotta run.

  4. Have you been on a . . . a . . . blog hop, LOL? And re the crucial TP issue, all decent, right-minded people know that the proper way is for the paper to come over the top and down the front of the roll. Only barbarians and heathens put it the other way.

  7. Let's get this over with. Why under of course. For your next post, I hope you will discuss one-ply versus two-ply. The bowl will runneth over if you add three-ply to the mix! Oh no this Gary Fest has really left me flushed!

  8. Well isn't that the age old question! Over the top I'd say or what about those places that insist on folding the ends into a triangle. Still either way is better than that scratchy stuff of times gone by! I'll pop and check the local small ads for any second hand clone machines for you!

    1. Hi Suzanne,

      A question that goes back even before those days when British toilet paper seemed more like waxed paper. Folding the ends into a triangle. I'm going to give those napkins on the tables at the restaurant a closer inspection. If you see any second hand or third hand clone machines, I would be eternally grateful to you.

  9. I've always preferred to have it under, that way you get more of a rolling action without the toilet paper breaking off. I do like a good wipe n swipe.

    1. Hi Rum-Punch Drunk,

      A vote for it under and up against the wall....Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar prefers it that way. Easier for her to spread all over the toilet floor. The toilet paper that is.

  10. i am tired and in need of a clone, my post today is about clones... really "great minds thinking" means stuff blows up... up and over, instead of under and behind.. there is a joke there to add to the great toilet paper debate of 2013.

    1. Hi Jeremy,

      We should get a clone to do our posts about clones. Great clone minds thinking alike, which would make sense, I guess. Up and over and away you go. Under and behind and then you wipe out. The ass wipe debate continues unabated, thanks to you, good sir. Send in the clones.

    As for t.p., my hubby prefers over, and I prefer under, but neither of us give a good diddle, so whoever hangs it gets to pick. As long as it's there, who cares? On second thought, our cats maybe. They prefer over, too. (MUCH easier to unroll and shred the whole darned roll that way.)

No, I wont mention that Penny has done such a thing. Or mention she's destroyed a roll of toilet paper before it even made it to the hanger.

Or be like one of those 'super important' bloggers and completely ignore the comments.

      It was good-natured fun. Anti-blogfests, blogfests! Argghhhh!!!

  44. Oh my G, Gary, I do believe you've been blog-hopping! But this one doesn't count eh? It was a GaryFest, not a blog-hop (God forbid!)

    :-) We still find the concept of wipe vs. wash tough to take. Butt oh well...in Rome, we did as Romans did, until we got home and could do as we did.

    :-) Enjoyed this post, butt what got me giggle was the music!

    1. Hi Vidya,

      Quite right! I got dressed as Jack Rabbit wearing a jacket and away I went. Hipping and hopping and hardly stopping. Irony and its best or worst, me thinks.

      I sat on one of those things that spray upwards. What the hell! I bet the Romans did some roaming. I've studied up on toilets and I noted, for instance, that toilets in Britain are higher off the ground than the average one in North America. However, the North American version has a wider bowel, um bowl.

      To the music of Jeopardy! I shall go and contemplate something...

  45. Oh Gary, dear Gary,
    Just keep basking in the love. Don't worry about leaving such thoughtful responses. Try: "Great post. See ya." I'm kidding. I know it's not your style. I also know it's hard to keep up. Um, I don't mean anything sexual by that. Really, I don't. As far as the toilet paper goes: BOTTOM line, it needs to be there. BUTT if it's not, it needs to be within reach. I don't care if it goes over or under.

    Who loves you?
    We all do.

    1. Hi Robyn,

      I'm beginning to start thinking about the logistics of commenting at length. I could be spending valuable time over at your site and other sites, leaving one of my alleged highly collectable comments. It is hard. Yes, it's very hard. It's very hard to keep up with all of this. I feel quite bad not getting to other sites as quickly as I would like to.

      You know, I haven't been the same since they discovered rings around Uranus. Still, in so far as toilet paper, over or under and then some butt thunder, I wonder.

      Yes, this comment has reached the bottom.

      Gosh, a lurve-in! Yay! :)

  46. Even people that don't care about which way it hangs have something to say about people that do care. Dirty fingers (esp. little people) leave marks on walls, if the paper hangs over the roll there is no need for those dirty little fingers to be reaching under the roll to find the end of it... of course you could just teach little people to clean the walls, which all comes in good time, but for now I just prefer to hang the paper over. I offer a paper turning service for free at other peoples houses, they don't even have to ask. The big question really is are you a folder or scruncher?

    1. Hi Ida,

      It seems some people will judge a person by the way they hang their toilet paper :) I think those dirty little fingers may have created a new form of graffiti. Or become in the running for winning a prize at the Tate Modern Fart, sorry, Art Gallery.

      You hang it over the top. Which means, if you visit somebody's house and it aint that way, you are going to re-roll it for them. Very kind of you. I'm a folding scruncher.

      Thank you, Ida.

    Re: the TP, keep it in the overflow - makes it easier to wipe below. If running low, make sure the dirty clothes hamper doesn't get too low (just keep that tidbit in the down low).

  50. Gary, I had a weird dream last night. My husband handed me my cup of morning caffe and your mug was on the mug. Really!

    Toilet paper out so you can see any old tracks that might have escaped your attention. Especially if you have young folk visiting. Young folk and toilet paper aren't compatible. This I know.

    Yes, next week, let's discuss 2 ply vs cashmere. I once used cashmere. It was delightful.

    Hugs to Penny and Tristen.

    1. Hey Joylene,

      Quite the dream you had. My mug on a mug. No doubt the mug your hubby handed to you, also had the caption, "Gary! If you see this dude, hand him into the blogger police!"

      Toilet paper up and over. Young folks and cats and dogs, think toilet paper is a really fun toy.

      We could discuss recycled butt wipe ass well. Or mention that we saw on the toilet rolls we purchased that the words stated, "New and Improved!" I certainly hope it's new!

      Thank you, eh. Hugs to you, your hubby and your mug.

  51. Hi Gary .. having been away - I suspect you'll have been ultra busy .. and I haven't read the comments here .. can only see your answer to Joylene - I'll backscroll now ... do they keep paper in the 21st century? These posts and comments wouldn't look so good on microfiche ...

    Now I have to keep up with the Red Arrows - 'cept it's misty and they may not run .. oh it's really come down and I think they'll be postponed ...

    Cheers and have a happy weekend .. Hilary

    1. Hi Hilary,

      I've been so busy that I find it's taking me a couple of days just to get to other sites. I hope you had a good backscroll and nothing to do with toilet paper. Some might think my comments back were about as fun as used toilet paper.

      The Red Arrows were delayed. When they get back up there, perhaps they could fly out some comments for me.

      Thank you, Hilary. I shall now visit your second comment.

  52. Before you get a chance to come back .. or maybe your finger is all typed out - not anything else -out .... I honestly don't know how you get your mind in that knotted ironical mess ...

    1. Hilary part two,

      My fingers are typed out and this means that Penny will soon be taking over. I shall glow in the irony that has been bestowed upon me. What a bewildering blogland.

  53. Good grief. Is this a toilet roll hop? If I vote on how that roll should go, do I get a prize--a case of TP?

    I'll be a clown, but I'm hesitant to be a clone. Duplicates are a tad scary, even scarier than clowns.

    My biggest question is now that your rich and infamous will you continue to be starstruck?

    1. Hi Lee,

      Good thing I actually know your name. If you vote, you get a prize. A year's supply, give or take a month, of recycled paper. Literally recycled paper.

      How about a clone clown? A clown clone? I copy what you're saying.

      I would never let my evidently newly-found celebrity status, stop me from realising that I shall continue to be your starstruckest fan.

      The prize is being carefully wrapped.

  55. May your summer be like a roll of toilet paper, long and useful.

    Oh, and methinks the paper running down the wall is the best, but hey, when one is desperate it could be hanging from the ceiling for all I care!
