Should toilet paper roll from the top or from the bottom?

There should be no debate. Definitely from the bottom! The only way - I think there's a rule somewhere - maybe it was one of the 11 Bill of Rights!

Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'
Keep that Charmin Rollin'......
ON TOP!!!!!!


Y'all remember that question that was asked by our astute host? Who could you NEVER be with???
Well - Let's add this one - I could NEVER be with someone who rolls their Charmin from the bottom.....Nope....Not!!

It's gotta be from the top folks - If you can't control your Charmin, what else is there????

This Green Polar Bear finds it always necessary that his toilet paper roll from the top. Otherwise, someone gets EATEN. Yummy. *grins*

Please! This is a non-question! Even the manufacturer slyly dictates that the paper should roll from the top - that way the pattern is always showing!

Bottom pullers really suck.

T.P. from the T O P.....only and always..and I'm not kidding either...I really mean it!! Don't mess with my T.P.

Wanna know something horrible??? I change it back to the top..when I visit Mom & Dad....LOL (Never do that to friends etc....just Mom & Dad) You know what else, I think I may need some therapy now!! Just thinking about that is ridiculous! DARN!! And here I thought I was the SANE one in the family. :P

Don't worry Poet deVine - you have an ally! It must be the bottom - you definitely do not get more control from the top. If you rip it from the top it can keep on spinning - all over the floor. The bottom is tidier too - unobtrusive. Stuff patterns, that's just 'sly' commercialism!

NEVER buy anything but white TP! The other stuff has color chemicals in it that can cause irritation and is not as soluble as plain white! (I can't believe we're still talking about this! LOL)

When rolling from the bottom,
I find I use two sheets more,
Than I did when from the top,
I selected sheets then tore.

Now, two sheets is not a lot,
When there are so many more,
But look at how many you've bought,
Over a lifetime from the store.

There is, too, another question,
When considering bottom or top.
Top rolls in the forward direction,
And, hence is much easier to stop.

And if you roll it in reverse,
And then begin to think likewise,
I don't mean to sound perverse,
But you'll fill up to your eyes.

Score 1 more for Top :-)

Bottom! Bottom!
That's the plan
if I can do it
anyone can!

Can! Can!
that's the place
roll from the bottom
to wipe your..face!

lol@face - no fair!!! I haven't gotten the hang of font size control < pout >.

Face Face
Save some face
Roll off the top
Or be disgraced!


Sally - You are perfectly normal! Trust me. Now... when you start changing the rolls in the public restrooms.... well, trust me.... THAT is when you need help. (psst, I can send you the name of my therapist. He's wonderful, and I've come a long way. I've learned to not use public restrooms!)

Whether up, or down, no more abuse
as long as the TP hasn't been used!

I don't understand the question. I simply hold it with my left hand and unravel it with my right. If you are left-handed, of course, you will want to reverse the process.

From the bottom... I use my elbow to stop the roll from spinning.. after many years of practice I find this gives me the optimum control and amount so ya dont get any on ya. haha... bottom is my vote.

I myself can take it either way, but since my other half believes it belongs on the top that's where it goes unless I am looking for trouble, then I might just forget a few times, and put it on the other way. I tell you it's fun to put it on backwards at other peoples houses that don't leave enough on the roll for company. The ultimate payback, cause you know their gonna be cursing you later. I must be in an evil mood right now, coming up with all these rotten idea's. Truely I always try and remember that most people like it on top. The rest are an exception to the rule.

Hey! Are we bottom-favourer's (it has a 'u' - read my profile!), so maligned that we can't be included on the who's-for-what bit!!!! Put us on there!
Actually, Poet deVine, I think recycled stuff is the way to go - we can suffer scratchy paper for the sake of the environment!!!
Think of the rain-forests everyone!

I have to say this, Top is the ONLY way to go!!!!!!!!!!!! Rolling any other way is completely pointless!!! If it is rolled anyway other than top is it really worth using????? Just thought I'd ask.

From the bottom for the bottom. And definitely no patterns.

Interesting stuff. I vote for TOP! I believe that it is easier to let gravity do its work ... let what goes up come down.

Oh my Gawd Lucie ! You made me laugh so hard, now I NEED some toilet paper! (stopping it with your elbow!) Good Gawd, aren't you talented?!! I feel for Christopher, he must live in hillbilly sticks Arkansas - he don't know what TP is!!! I sent you all my X-tra corn cobs Chris! Check your E-mail! MY VOTE IS FOR THE TOP! I nearly fell off the stool once, bending over trying to find the damn end the other way! (Damn thing was hiding from me!) I swear I spun that thing around 100 times and never found it! Don't ever try to look up underneath something while sitting on the stool!!
