lurid toilet paper

    Why on earth does anyone need to wipe their bums on bright red/blue/green toilet paper? What do the dyes in these products do to the environment? Our local tesco is selling the stuff.

    If I were a benevolent dictator I'd ban all but unbleached bog-roll.

    Yeah. Use recycled.

    Wash it first, though...

    Or a sponge on a stick.

    Strangely, I’ve just been looking on Tesco.com doing my internet shopping and couldn’t find any Christmas toilet paper. I was only looking for something like small snowflakes, trees or snowmen. So boring plain whiteit remains.

    I went to a marketing event last year where the company that makes the stuff was praised to the heavens for being innovative and literally "changing the world". They can sell it for more and steal business from their rivals, that's the only point. Who cares about wasting resources and impacting the environment when there's money to be made from flashing a bit of colour at bum-wiping time.

    Or the neck of a goose - if you can make it stand still long enough.

    There speaks an erudite person who has read Rabelais' "The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel."

    Forty-five years since I read it. Ta, spiritwakedness and nomad.

    We need a bit of cheer this year. Red bog roll is a suitable antidote to Jacob Rees Mogg on telly being treated as anything other than a caricature of a bygone age.

    I despair of you all, really I do. I hope you end up with red bums.

    My bum does not have eyes. This is probably a good thing.

    Something that the Middle and Far East has taught me is the love for the bum-jet! Sorts you right out and all you need to do afterwards is dab with a towel. Very environmentally friendly (and hygienic!).
