Black Toilet Paper -- Is It Fashion Design or Is It Interior Design?

Ms. Green asked: "If black is the new black, again, should its influence extend to toilet paper? Okay, so people have bought pet rocks and other useless things. But black toilet paper?

Isn't toilet paper like white envelopes? We need them but we don't discuss them. White envelopes are white,hold an 8-1/2 by 11 sheet of paper folded in thirds, designed to stay glued until it gets from point A to point B. Toilet paper is white, soft, and strong enough to go from point A to point B. I know, toilet paper has flowers and dollar bills printed on it, but can anyone honestly say they feel comfortable wiping with money?

I don't know about other women, but I come from the school of--girls don't sit on toilets, they wash their hands before leaving the bathroom, and they don't touch the door knob on the way out of a public rest room. I may seem a bit antiseptically challenged, but black toilet paper is way down the bottom of my list of things that would make me feel clean after using it.

Is black toilet paper fashion design or interior design? There are a number of organizations forecasting colors for both industries. I can't imagine members of the Color Association of the United States, color forecasting since 1945, taking black toilet paper as a serious subject of discussion.

Frankly, Miles Redd, an interior designer interviewed by Ms. Green said it all: "Sounds so Halston, so balls of cocaine."
