relax, and perhaps sing along to the two ballads played on
the Musical Toilet Paper Roll.
For hundreds of years, the human race has had music, and the
human race has had toilet-paper rollers. But it is only recently
that we have been able, thanks to technology, to realize the dream
of bringing these two things together.
The result is this ``high-tech'' gift concept: A roller that,
according to the catalog we ordered it from, ``plays two relaxing
ballads whenever you unroll tissue.''
``Enjoy listening to the great music of Love Story and
Love Me Tender,'' states the catalog, adding that this
item is a ``great conversation piece.''
We're sure it is. We're picturing a cocktail party where, whenever
anybody has to use the commode, the whole gang crowds into the
bathroom to talk about this item, and perhaps sing along with
the two relaxing ballads.
If this item does not epitomize the expression ``$4.95 worth
of class,'' then nothing does.
