The Rant! ๐Ÿคฌ #08: Animals Advertising Toilet Paper

Ever since I was a young boy I have seen TV commercials advertising toilet paper, with the aid of animals.

What the hell is this about?

The connection between soft animals and soft toilet paper is lost on me.


It’s weird to me that anybody would choose to associate or market a product with something that has absolutely no need for it. No animal other than humans, have ever used toilet paper. And no animal I have ever touched has ever felt like toilet paper. So what’s the link? There is no link!

Try wiping your bum on a cat and I’m pretty sure you will loose something in the process.

Yes I agree some animals do feel nice and soft but I can honestly say I have never had the thought of using one to wipe my arse. I can’t see how that would be a good situation for either me or the animal. Plus I am pretty sure the RSPCA would have something to say about it.


The toilet paper industry is the one industry that does not need to rely on cheap gimmicks for the simple fact that everybody needs to shit, so everybody needs toilet paper. Unless of course, you want to use your hand.

The advert should be short and simple like:

Avoid This!!


And Buy This!


Done! No nonsense.
