it also represents how once you're married, you don't mind that the other person poops.
lol! ;) I would hope that everybody poops. Isn't there a book like that? I feel like I saw it at Urban outfitters or something.
There are two rolls together, just like the couple. And th toilet paper is soft, gentle, long and strong,
...and resistant to crap, which a good marriage should also be. :)
Dang. I totally forgot to add toilet paper to our registry!
lol! What were you thinking? ;) It's the foundation for a healthy marriage you know. hehe
Soft and gentle, huh? She must give them the cushy stuff and not the tree bark they use in public restrooms. :)
lol, seriously!!! Some toilet paper is closer to sand paper, I think.
That is probably the weirdest tradition I've heard about in awhile. It kind of makes you wonder if she has a closet somewhere that is full of rolls of toilet paper for future lucky couples.
lol, you know she does. It's like the closet of future nuptials. I enjoy it. ;)
p.s. which musical theatre song is better:
"It's a Fine Life" from Oliver
"It a Fine Life" from Newsies??
(i pick newsies)(but they're practically the same, really)
That's Carryin' Da Banner, right? :) I love them both, but I adore Nancy so these two parts from It's a Fine Life win for me:
( Beware the incorrect lyrics. lol)
"All though you may come by the occasional black eye , there's always time ta' cover tell he blacks the other, but you don't dare cry!"
" Not for me the happy home. Happy husband, happy wife. Tho it sometimes touches me, for the likes of such as me, it's a fine, fine life!"
Love those booooth, so they win. lol
I LOVE Despair, Inc.
If you go to www.despair.com, then click "View All Demotivators" [It's one of the links at the top, on the left], then scroll down, they have posters. My personal favorites are "Destiny," "Compromise," "Customer Care," "Consulting," "Individuality," "Motivation," "Pressure," and "Propaganda."
Oh I loooove their posters. So funny.
toilet paper is perfect symbolic gift because no matter how great things are shit will always happen.

I think my boss must have attended that guys seminar.
That's seven shades of awesome, right there. You really DO find all the coolest stuff around, you know that?
I rather approve of this gift. However, I would hope that, unlike Madge's marriage, I wouldn't wait 18 months to announce a split from my partner while I completed publicity and marketing for my new album...(this is only tangentially connected with toilet paper, other than she obviously thinks that hers don't stink)
So, everyone else here: would you actually put the Reverend Brown's gift to, shall we say, practical use? Or would you instead put it in the box with the wedding dress and put it under the bed for 20 years, then pull the box out in a fit of nostalgia and find your dress covered with flakes of mummified paper tissue?
Oh, it'd be saved. ;) What a freakin' random gift. I'd have to put it in my bathroom in a little case.. lol
I like that. Of course if your marriage goes to shit you have something to clean it up with.
Hahaha that is brilliant!
Inexpensive as well as symbolic.
Isn't it awesome? ;) I like it too.
Personally I think there are better things to symbolize a marriage. I don't think toliet paper is an apropriate wedding gift. Maybe I'm just old fashioned.
I don't know if it's appropriate but I think it's kinda funny. ;)
