WTF Wednesday: If You Can See the White Pieces, You're Following Too Closely

WTF Wednesday is a semi-regular feature of this blog. It documents the things that have made me pause, slap my forehead and say "What the f**k!" Well, that and I just like saying WTF. I'm retired. I don't have to watch what I say anymore. I'm not any one's role model.

Have you seen the commercial for Charmin where the bears claim to be bothered by specks of  toilet paper left behind after a wipe.  I saw the commercial and thought "What the f**k?" 

With all the problems in the world, why did Charmin feel the need to solve a "problem" that doesn't exist. Were consumers protesting in front of corporate headquarters demanding a solution to an age-old problem?  Who, besides gynocologists and porn stars is looking that closely?


  1. Amen! I have been bothered by that commercial since it began. Nice to see I'm not the only one! Happy Thanksgiving, Nana! I hope you will be safe and warm surrounded by family.

  2. Oh, brother! Glad I don't watch television!

    Have a safe trip to Texas, Jann, and a happy Thanksgiving.

  3. OMG I'm rolling right now! Yes I completely agree with you, this commercial just bothers me on so many levels. hahaha!

    Have a super happy Thanksgiving :-)

  4. So funny! Can you just imagine what the meeting where that concept was pitched was like?

  5. I am equally confused by the invention of the automatic soap dispenser. Never have to touch a germ-ie soap pump again? But just after you touch it you wash your hands so what was the problem?
