Toilet Paper That Will Scare The !@#$ Out Of You (Literally)

Japan saves the day with horror story toilet paper!




Not only does Japan have the best animation, but now it has the best toilet paper in the world. CBS news has found a company that actually prints a horror story on the toilet paper itself, saving you that extra effort of grabbing a book before you hit the porcelain throne. This is no average horror story, but a new nine-chapter novella that is written the same person that wrote the Ring, Koji Suzuki.

Its name is Drop, which fittingly takes place in a public restroom. Each roll sells for 210 yen, which is about $2.10. CBS news states that the story takes up about three feet in each roll, and can be read in a few minutes. However, I can’t imagine anyone reading a nine chapter book in a few minutes. Maybe they meant to say that each chapter is read in a few minutes, which makes a little more sense. But what happens when someone else comes and “borrows” your toilet paper? Your entire story experience will be ruined until you get to that part of the story again.

This is actually a really good idea, think about how much more money a toilet paper company can make by using this new medium. Though I can’t imagine the pitch Koji had to make to get this gig.

“So I have this brand new idea that will revolutionize the business. Horror story on toilet paper, It’s like a Nintendo Wii for the butt and the mind; think about it.”
