Comfort Wipe

Oh yeh, now we’re talkin’ MFTA material. I big thank you to Jana’s friend Sarah for finding this baby….

The Comfort Wipe.

In a nutshell, this is a a plastic arm that holds your toilet paper while you wipe your arse! They claim this is the first improvement to toilet paper since the 1880s. Oh, you mean the year it was invented? So they are saying nothing has changed in the TP world since it was first conceived of… I sort of doubt that. With all those bears and clouds hawking the stuff I would think there have been a few improvements along the way. I mean 2010 alone was a huge year in the land of the wiping of ones butt with advertising smackdowns and the like.

Back to the Comfort Wipe, I love the idea that these people find toilet paper ‘archaic’ and ‘disgusting’.  They are marketing this towards those who ‘just don’t want to touch dirty toilet paper’.

You know, as opposed to those of us who really like to.

With a pitch like that how could anyone not own one of these. Of course I do wonder how the hell you are supposed to clean this thing.

  1. As usual your blog provides great food for thought – and no, I’m not being sarcastic, I’m serious!

    Hey sweetheart, if you think toilet paper is “archaic and disgusting,” you should try the alternatives.

    SERIOUSLY?! Also, I don’t know about all of you, but I’d be hard pressed to get that thing anywhere near my butt and lady parts. What is it, 18 inches? And how long is your arm? May be for cleaning one’s feet…

    LOVED this. Thanks Amy. 🙂

    Okay, maybe someone could market jumbo toilet paper for the “big” guy.

  4. ellen came up after I watched the ad! Luckily, I don’t suffer from that problem!
