It's new! It's budget-priced ShitBegone Toilet Paper!
In some brands, the rolls are 60 or 70% air. All that air uses extra space and fuel during handling. But embossing doesn't make the actual paper soft - in fact, it can make it scratchier. Hence Marvin's [the manufacturer] position: he's in business to sell toilet paper, not air. He refuses to emboss, and so his rolls are rock-hard. It's a tough sell these days - when young people are used to squeezing the Charmin. But the paper works well, and it's honest. For ShitBegone Value, that seems to make sense.You can even get a strip of free ShitBegone stickers! [via BoingBoing]
