illustration friday (lesson)
I recently read a hilarious essay about an uproar that took place over a certain American television commercial featuring toilet paper. The details aren't important, but apparently the uproar was of the extreme-feminist variety.
This reminded me of a type of toilet paper produced in Japan some years back. It was printed with English language lessons. The idea was that you could study English while sitting on the toilet. This product was the rage for a brief while, but some people expressed concern that it would give girls an academic advantage over boys. People are such amusing creatures.
