Dating can be rough. You gotta go through a lot of frogs to find your prince, and a lot of the frogs can be crappy at messaging on Tinder.

The original toilet paper roll was patented in 1891 by New York businessman Seth Wheeler, according to the Huffington Post. According to Wheeler, the paper should go over:
This info was also submitted to the debate:
But the best answer in my opinion is this:
If you’re not paying for and stocking my TP, don’t talk to me about it. Especially before you even buy a girl a drink.
