Running out of toilet paper when you thought you had a spare roll is a bit annoying, so I have devised a storage method that clearly shows how many rolls are left.

It's best to view the illustration (a ten minute scribble) to understand the idea more fully.

He's named Andrex Man in respect of the famous manufacturers of toilet paper in the UK, and also with reference to "Michelin Man" who is composed entirely of tyres.

       Nice! Definitely needs to be poseable. I'm just a bit concerned about getting the rolls of his legs. Perhaps if he was wall mounted, maybe in a sitting position, like perhaps sitting ON something..?

       You simply unscrew the feet to get at the rolls on the legs.

       An Andrexaconda would be more practical.

       Terrible way to die ...   

       Given the existence of toilet tissue in a variety of colours, is there not a significant risk that Andrex Man might be confused with Bertie Bassett ? <link>

       Unless you've started snacking on the toilet rolls again! I thought you'd stopped all that nonsense after the last bout of papierrhoea.

       We have more than sufficient discrimination to avoid such a misfortune; but there are others who may be vulnerable to such confusion...

       Thus speaks the voice of experience.

       He could have a stand like an artist's lay figure. Then he could point his toes, and you wouldn't have to unscrew anything.

       He's on a roll!
