You have to go back before 1934 when they started enforcing the Hayes
Code (Motion Picture Production Code) when women still had breasts and
didn't mind showing them. Check out the 1925 version of Ben Hur or some
of Louise Brooks stuff. The It girl, Clara Bow, wasn't bad either.
Back around 1988 to 1990, I was working as a plumber, and an elderly
woman had a pink toilet that was cracked and needed to be replaced. Her
tub, sink, and walls were all pink. She refused to let me install a
white toilet, and said she would pay top dollar for a pink one. I called
all sorts of plumbing and building stores and could not find any pink
toilets. A few days later I found a pink toilet sitting on the curb not
far away from my house. I asked the homeowner and he was happy to give
it to me, and get rid of it.
I brought it home, cleaned it, replaced all the parts in the tank, and
the tank to bowl gasket. She was more than happy to pay me about 3 times
what a new white toilet would have cost. That was easy money, even
though I had wasted many hours on the phone trying to locate a
replacment. It was just luck that I found that used pink toilet when I

Here's some info for you to get ahead of the crowds.
You know those wildfires in southen California now?
Well, I bet you didn't know that the Clappington
Paper Products factory is one of the many business
that burned down.
Have you ever noticed that regardless of the brand
of toilet paper you purchase, that there are only
five or six different types of toilet paper on the
market. But there are a lot of brands and a lot of
Have you noticed that there are only a couple
different types of packaging for toilet paper?
Well, the secret is out. About 97 1/2 percent of
the toilet paper in the US, Canada, and Mexico is
manufactured in one facility. That would be the
Clappington Factory, in southern CA. You see, the
finished product is so light weight, it is easy
to transport by truck. Nearly no weight at all.
And the factory is so close to the border, they
use a lot of illegal immigrant labor. This is an
open secret — because INS knows what would happen
to the nation if the one TP factory closed.
Well, it did close. The wildfires in southern CA
have burned down the one factory which makes
97 1/2 percent of the TP in the US, Mexico, and
Canada. It is expected to be 6 to 8 weeks before
any other manufacturing facility can make adequate
supplies of TP.
Governor Schwarzenegger has enough troubles with
the fire, and staying elected. He can't afford to
be known as the governor who deprived the nation
of toilet paper. So, he's ordered a news blackout
of the story. You havn't seen it on the news,
right? But the email and internet allow us to know
things that aren't on the news.
Stores have only about a 2 to 3 day supply of TP
on the shelves. Wait till the word gets out, you'll
see a run on toilet paper like never before. And
it's going to be 6 weeks at the very minimum till
the stores have any more.
If you havn't stocked up, now is the time. And
forward this message to everyone in your adress
book. You wouldn't want your close friends to be
out of something so important. I wouldn't joke
about something this serious.

Johnny Carson created a shortage when he joked about it some years
ago. People did rush out to buy it since he mentioned it. I think it
was in the 70's around the oil shortage era.
Clappington hoax goes back about a dozen years to the last beg fires
Please also buy military rifles, red "Make
America great" hats, and flexible drinking
straws. All scheduled for shortages. And also
be sure to get the letter Q, brought to you
by the letter Q and the number 4.
The old light bulbs were deficient in blue light (because blue
corresponds to higher temperature). This produces a "dirty yellow"
quality to the light. I never considered that a problem until I learned
of better lights. "warm white" CFLs are WORSE that way.

Be glad that today's toilet paper doesn't smell. Remember in the 1980s when
one manufacturer scented their toilet paper, and ALL others then followed
suit. You would enter the bathroom and smell the toilet paper. To get
non-scented paper you had to hunt for and buy some obscure brand.
