Sheryl Crow: Use just 1 square of toilet paper

"I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required."

EEEWWWW!
So I guess I won't be asking for an autograph, to shake hands or certainly to play one of her guitars. No wonder Lance dumped her!

I recycle newspaper, so I feel entitled to use whatever amount of TP I need to get the job done. Do what you can to conserve, but this is ridiculous. I doubt she can get the job done with one sheet.

She can't be serious. It must be some sort of joke, yes?

In a blog posting over the weekend, singer Sheryl Crow unveiled her plan to help everyone combat global warming. It involves toilet paper. I'll let Sheryl tell it in her own words:

"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. Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating. One of my favorites is in the area of conserving trees which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required."

Crow is not the first to consider the possibility that toilet paper might be one of the root causes of the .6 degrees (Celsius) the Earth has warmed over the past century. Last month, the New York Times featured a family living in Manhattan - Colin Beaven, Michelle Conlin, and their 2-year-old daughter Isabelle - which is attempting a year-long project they call "No Impact." The goal of the project is to live an entire year without making any impact on the environment.

According to the New York Times article, this involves the family eating only organically grown food (grown within 250 miles of Manhattan), no shopping for anything except food, producing no trash except compost, no carbon-based transportation and no paper use.

The lack of paper is perhaps the most difficult. Not only because both parents work in publishing (he is a writer of historical nonfiction and she is a writer at Business Week), but because the ban on paper includes toilet paper. As the author of the article says, "Nothing is a substitute for toilet paper, by the way; think of bowls of water and lots of air drying."

Although the gesture is noble, of course, one has to wonder exactly how effective it is. The 250 mile rule for food purchasing is the distance the family feels a farmer can drive in a car from the country in one day, while a loophole exists that allows the family to accept gifts. Still, their complete lack of toilet paper is impressive, as is Sheryl Crow's single square of toilet paper per bathroom visit, if - one assumes - just a tad bit smelly.

And exactly HOW does Ms. Crow propose to implement this "one sheet" rule? Spycams in the stalls? What about those funky toilets they have in Europe that has the water sprinkler thingy? Never figured how those things work.

Sheryl Crow fights with Karl Rove over eco-issues
BY: Actress Archives | Monday, April 23, 2007


In a confrontation that most political followers would pay to see, Karl Rove and Sheryl Crow had a brief battle of words at Saturday's White House Correspondent's Association dinner. According to the New York Daily News, Sheryl Crow and Laurie David (wife of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld guru Larry David), two strong ecological voices, ran into Karl Rove at the dinner and decided to politely talk to the Bush overlord about a few things, but were greeted with animosity and combative arguments. Laurie David tells the paper that Rove, "immediately got combative...Throwing a tantrum, Mr. Rove launched into a series of illogical arguments." Oh how we wish someone got that on tape.


The story gets better - Karl Rove was heading to his table at the White House Correspondent's Association dinner, an unusual event in which political figures mingle with celebrities like Sheryl Crow and Sanjaya Malakar (not a joke, he was there), when Sheryl reached out and touched his arm, just to get his attention. David wrote on The Huffington Post that "Karl swung around and spat, ‘Don't touch me.' How hardened and removed from reality must a person be to refuse to be touched by Sheryl Crow?"


Sheryl Crow responded that Karl Rove worked for us and that he "can't speak to us like that." Karl Rove apparently responded that "I don't work for you, I work for the American people." Crow shot back, "We are the American people."


Sheryl Crow and Laurie David have been touring the country, stopping at US campuses in a biodiesel bus on a "Stop Global Warming College Tour." The pair had been openly asking Karl Rove, someone who has openly denied the inconvenient truths of global warming, to look at the issue differently, but that didn't happen on Saturday. David, a major Democratic Party donor, said on Sunday, "I honestly thought that I was going to change his mind, like, right there and then."


The conversation continued. Laurie David said, "I am floored by what I just experienced with Karl Rove. I went over to him and said: 'I urge you to take a new look at global warming.' He went zero to 100 with me. I've never had anyone be so rude."


Karl Rove had a different view, telling the Washington Post that Laurie David "came over to insult me and she succeeded."


Some witnessed claim that Laurie David was very aggressive with Karl Rove, but Sheryl Crow claims that it was "Bush's brain" that was the combative and unresponsive one. Tony Fratto, a White House spokesperson has already come out and said, "We have respect for the opinions and passion that many people have for climate change. I wish the same respect was afforded to the president. It would be better to set aside Hollywood histrionics and try to help with the problem instead of this baseless, and tasteless, finger pointing."


On Sunday, Sheryl Crow performed with Carole King, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw at Washington's George Washington University at an Earth Day concert. In a brief bit of news that has made for some unusual headlines, Sheryl Crow also recently came up with a unique way to stop global warming, writing on her Biodiesel Bus Blog, "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. 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. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required."


Maybe Sheryl Crow and Laurie David were trying to tell Karl Rove to use less toilet paper. Even though we all know how much toiletries cost at the White House, no one tells Karl Rove how to go to the bathroom.

I'll tell you how Ms. Crow can REALLY help conserve on TP....learn how to shake it off like men do. We don't use any paper when we wee-wee. If a woman could develop a way to shake the dew off, they'd save a heap of TP that way.

She, obviously, has never tried to get peanut butter outta the carpet. I guess that comes from dating a guy that shaves everywhere.

Plus, I hope she's talking two ply paper.

Sheryl Crow is a tiny person-she probably poops like a bunny rabbit, so her toilet paper proposal may fly.

But for most guys, we can turn a nice meal into a weapon of mass destruction. In minutes.

Karl Rove did not want to be touched by Sheryl Crow? Actually, if Sheryl only does use one square, maybe it is NOT so surprising that Karl Rove did not want to be touched by her. I'd still take my chances!

A better solution, however, would be to wipe your ass with a CD of the Sheryl Crow/ Kid Rock duet. It was made for just that purpose, methinks....

I do believe the 1 sheet method would be contrary to the laws of physics & biology. Not to mention the local health codes!

That reminds me of a hilarious thing my Dad used to tell us when we were young. He would tell us that in the navy, they only get one sheet. He would say that you rip a small hole in the middle of the sheet, but keep the piece of scrap TP. Stick your finger through the whole and wipe away using your finger. Use the surrounding TP to wipe off the finger. Here was the funniest part. Remember that scrap of TP? You use that to clean out your fingernail!!!

It's pretty easy to conserve TP when most of your crap comes out on disc.

Drink lots of water. . Lots & lots of water. Whatever you don't catch will be pretty free of uric acid.
