Mega-Roll

I went to CVS yesterday to pick up some necessities, the most important among these being toilet paper.

Now I have always been a fan of Charmin's "double" roll, which is the size of two standard rolls of toilet paper on one tube. Change the paper half as often! Just think of all the extra free time you'll have in your life.

So you can well imagine my thrill at discovering the CHARMIN MEGA-ROLL. "The sheets of 4 regular rolls in 1!" That's right people FOUR. You'll practically never have to change the toilet paper roll again! You'll have time to invent a...well... something cool.

It's unbelievable. The 6-roll package was too heavy to lift comfortably with one hand. Each roll is so big, it doesn't fit on a standard holder. But don't worry: the package actually comes with an Extender.

I'm not making this up -- I couldn't make this up! It's a little plastic doohickey that fits in the holes where your original toilet paper holder attached to the wall, only it juts out to make enough room for the enormous mass of toilet paper now taking up most of the spare room in the bathroom.

If you don't believe me, check out the demo on their website. It involves bears -- with bows on their head!

It's amazing. It's stunning. It's almost bigger than my cat.... It's MEGA-ROLL.

I think it'd make a great pokeman character.
