TP, and no, I don’t mean Terry Pendleton

Yeah, I was in the show. I was in the show for 21 days once – the 21 greatest days of my life. You know, you never handle your luggage in the show? Somebody else carries your bags. It was great. You hit white balls for batting practice, the ballparks are like cathedrals, the hotels all have room service, the women all have long legs and brains . . . and if Greenpeace and the NRDC get their way, the toilet paper will be beige and scratchy:

On Monday, Greenpeace for the first time issued a national guide for American consumers that rates toilet tissue brands on their environmental soundness. With the recession pushing the price for recycled paper down and Americans showing more willingness to repurpose everything from clothing to tires, environmental groups want more people to switch to recycled toilet tissue.

“No forest of any kind should be used to make toilet paper,” said Allen Hershkowitz, a senior scientist and waste expert with the Natural Resource Defense Council . . .

. . . Hershkowitz is pushing the high-profile groups he consults with, including Major League Baseball, to use only recycled toilet tissue.

If they’re really looking for environmentally-friendly options, they should probably consult George Brett.

    Beige and Scratchy! As someone who has used two of the TPs at the top of the list, I can assure that they are both white and soft. I would rather trees be used for baseball bats and cleaning the air and stuff rather than for wiping.

    I figure the TP article was mainly a setup for the Brett video – which has been taken down unfortunately – but I’m in favor of recycled toilet paper, and other recycled products.

    When I went to Africa, I took over 100 rolls of toilet paper with me. 20 months later, the last roll ran out on the last day I was in country.

    People who weren’t smart enough to bring their own were offering me $10 a roll. Sure, I could have made some bank, but I prefer my comfort.
