thriller/horror story toilet paper
  [vote for,

a story on a roll.

each family member must have their own roll for continuity’s sake..

printed toilet paper is very baked but I cannot find a complete thriller/horror/fantasy/spooky story on one roll.

it would be an individual preference whether you just read as and when necessary or whether you are one of those people who like to while away an hour or more, reading in peaceful solitude in the bathroom or even whether you would prefer to take an hour’s entertaining prose to bed and then if the fear and the tension got the better of your nerves at certain points and you needed the loo then all is well…

constipation banished at a stroke.

       Gimme the works.

       The butler did it.

       Good way to enjoy a real Potboiler. Is there an Epi-Log at the end of the roll? Could merchants mail out Scatalogs?
wombat, Aug 22 2003

       "Hey, who dumped this huge wad of toilet paper in the trash can?"
"Sorry about that, but I was dying to find out how the story turned out."
krelnik, Aug 22 2003

       "It was a good story, but the ending was just shit."

DeathNinja, Aug 22 2003

       "After reading that, I'm wiped out."

       what if you need to use paper faster than you can read?
Freefall, Aug 22 2003

       [kreuner] - then you and your wife have some interesting bedtime conversation.

       FF. you could always have some ordinary stuff as backup.

       The phrase "Running feature" gets a new meaning.

       I just finished Harry Potty roll 5!
wombat, Aug 23 2003

       I just finished Terry Prachett's Colour of Magic. don't ask! I said don't ask!

       A really bad three day flu might be sufficient to read an entire encyclopedia. I'll take rolls A thru T please.
LabRat, Aug 23 2003

       Good idea! But it sounds a bit, corny, hehehe j/k. But this post sure did generate a lot of puns!
thelambs, Aug 23 2003

       Will there be serials? You know, like Toilet issues?
thumbwax, Aug 23 2003

       the dedications might be fun in themselves, come to think of it.
po, Aug 24 2003

       Amazing idea [po]!!!, I Love it!
Pericles, Aug 24 2003

       Please make the toilet paper's surface structure in Braille, so people who are visually impaired can benefit as well.
Brummo, Aug 24 2003

       You'd need two versions, printed on the outside or inside of the tissue, depending on customers' roll-hanging preferences.
FarmerJohn, Aug 24 2003

       The same story ass-backwards, just like the people who hang their toilet paper in the improper underhand fashion...

DeathNinja, Aug 24 2003

       This could also work as an idea for special boxes of facial tissues for people sick with the flu or a cold. They could read the story as they go through the tissues blowing their nose.
TeaTotal, Aug 24 2003

       I like the idea but it seems prone to interruption. Unless you have your own roll stashed away, it seems someone is likely to need to use it somewhere about the middle of chapter 6. You'll miss an entire section and have no idea who killed crazed cousin Morris.
waugsqueke, Aug 24 2003

       All right, I'll lend you my favorite roll. But don't dog ear it!   

       Ah, the plot sickens -- reader's digest, indeed! Laughed...cried...pretty good, as scat.   

       Boilerplate: Events and characters within are fictional, such that any likeness to persons living or dead is purely Rorschach-based; printed on recycled, antacid-free high-fiber paper; format works best for authors with severe logorrhea; see table contents for colonphon.   

       Yep, there's a croissant in here somewhere.
n-pearson, Aug 24 2003

       Would the story be printed on each side of the paper?
PaddyPat, Aug 25 2003

       Teehee! Again! +
sartep, Aug 29 2003

       is that a vote or a sugarlump?

Tiger Lily, Aug 29 2003

       of course, did the final chapter have you on the edge of your seat?
po, Aug 29 2003

       Thank you. Yes, it was truly cathartic.
Tiger Lily, Aug 29 2003

       Rectum? Damn near killed him! Ha ha ha ha. Oh, wait... wrong punchline...
DeathNinja, Aug 29 2003

       Finally the pulp fiction writers can have their stories printed in their rightful place.

[po] your idea has been scooped by the author of...

       ,wait for it,   

       ...The Ring.
