Speak Up, Ya Bums!

This Choose and Defend Wednesday features a choice selected by everyone's favorite blogger, Tara! It is a bit of a divisive issue...a bit controversial. I have seem people practically come to blows over this one. But I think it needs to be asked.

Which is the correct way to hang your toilet paper roll?

Over
OR

Under

Everyone has an opinon about this. What is yours? Tell us which way it is done...and perhaps more importantly, tell us why. Choose and Defend. I sense that the time is right for an honest discussion about this issue. Thank you.

I'll be honest, i don't really care. In college, my roommates would get so mad(Not REALLY mad, but you know what I mean), if I had it from the bottom. It makes no difference to me.

From the top! That way you pull the paper away from the wall... keeping it clean. And you can't do that fun thing with it the other way either.

Tara said...

I thought this question looked familiar! I forgot that I suggested this one to you! Ha! Thanks LB!

As for the toilet paper, I have it under. I used to position it over, but I like the tidiness of it being under.

choice = over

defense = while an under handed dunk can be cool in its own way, full of finesse and suave nuance if done well, there is no comparison between the best under and the average over handed dunk slammed home with authority to intimidate the opposition.

a roll of toilet paper is no different. really now, is it?especially if the friggin hearts are upside down one way and right side up the other. duh.

Due to the height of my toilet paper holder, I prefer over the top. I think it's easier to grab the end of the paper anyway.

Final answer: OVER

This is exactly the kind of thing I don't really notice, that drives other people crazy. Someone told me it was supposed to go over, so I guess I'll say that. It's not much of a reason, but it's all I got.

The only correct answer is over.

MrManuel: haha! Okay...we are going to use your roommates strong opinions in lieu of yours and say...One for Over.

Ananda: You make a compelling argument! Two for Over.

Tara: Well, thank YOU for the fun suggestion :-) And also for your good reasoning here. One for Under.

Cornbread Hell: I admit to being intrigued by the idea of intimidating the opposition in the bathroom. That just seems like good planning. Three for Over.

AlienCG: Ah, hearing it from the tall man's perspective...intersting. Four for Over.

Churlita: I think in this particular debate that is as good a reason as any :-) Five for Over.

Pamela: haha! I like the confidence of your answer! Six for Over.

Everyone: Over is kicking Under's...uh, ass..here with a score of 6-1. It's not to late to let your opinion be heard.

Over. I don't talk to people who think under is correct, frankly, I find it un-american.

laura b. said...

Sebastien: That is a bold statement, but then you are a bold guy. It is now 7-1 Over.

I have a whole thing about the way I have hung toilet paper over and how it changed over the years. May be a whole post. But would anyone care? haha!
