Lightbulb New meaning to Boondocking?

The next trip with your A/s might be interesting w/regards to toilet paper:

I saw this on the news today:

By Stone Martindale Apr 23, 2007, 15:56

"Songstress Sheryl Crow is calling for a limit on toilet paper.

The green minded singer Crow has said a ban on using too much toilet paper should be considered to help the environment, according to the BBC.
In an unheard of celebrity tutorial on mindful Earth friendly tips, Crow suggests using "only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required".
The BBC unearthed this gem of information on her website.
Crow completed a tour while traveling on a biodiesel-powered bus. She teamed up with environmental activist Laurie David for the shows.
"I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting...I have spent the better part of this tour trying to come up with easy ways for us all to become a part of the solution to global warming," Crow wrote reported the BBC.
"Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating.
"I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting."
Crow has also commented on her website about how she thinks paper napkins "represent the height of wastefulness" and come up with a clothing line with a "dining sleeve" that acts as an ersatz napkin."

I guess that ol' Cheryl Crow is an "expert" since she is a celebrity. What an idiot! I'm sure that she uses on square of toilet paper per "incident".

We if they printed the newspapers on softer paper, we could use that and save a tree. Many of the articles are suitable for that usage anyway.

The Paper Police

Cheryl can be in charge of the Paper Police and we all know what we can do when she comes to inspect our usage.

If only they would have explained the 3 sea shells in the movie "The Demolition Man" we could solve this problem.

How Cruel!

Sometimes I am disheartened over the lack of sensitivity of some of the people who have Airstreams.
This woman is an Artist!
She is talented and has a lovely, uh, personality.
Besides, she sings a song that I like.
Just because she is dainty and can do it with one sheet should not make her the object of derision. She has obvious skills.
Sheryl is a success, has mansions, dates famous people and has ridden a bicycle once.
Being clueless is just another quality to admire.
Gesh, she probably looked at an Airstream once.

Rob

I can see limiting my usage to two squares...that should just about wrap around one of her CD covers!

I appreciate celebrities using their celebrity status to bring attention to social issues, but sometimes they really should think through what they are saying before they say it. This time this one really shows that she has nothing of any value to say.

Let's give her a roll of 365 squares for her to use for a year and see how long it would be before she asks for another. Is there such a thing as a dainty incident? Don't think so.
