The 'rsstroom reader' is a bathroom gadget that prints news feeds onto your T-P - that's right, your TOILET PAPER! The best part is the "biometrics" toilet seat that'll figure out who you are based on your weight and prints the news you want - not your roommates tabloid garbage. Going to the rsstroom will never be boring again! Heres a close-up image of this new gadget."

    Right. You'll note that if you look at the inside of the supposed TP roll, it's not your standard brown paper tube (nor does it resemble one at all.)

    The problem is that for toilet-paper to feed/print properly in such a device (were it not a joke) then you would likely need some rather paper-like, non-fluppy TP.

    The problem with this being... standard paper and one's backend would not agree with each other greatly. The cheap stuff they buy here at work is bad enough, but I really don't need roaring hemmaroids and an ink-trace of slashdot attached to my heiny.
