100% Recycled

I drove over to Trader Joe's, a specialty grocery store. Three-fourths of the world goes to bed hungry and I have a specialty grocery store in which to shop. Is this a great country or what?!

Anyway, I'm shopping for herb salad, crumbled Gorgonzola cheese, real cream, and tuna fish cat food when I discover what must be a marketing nightmare. In the paper section of the home aisle is "Toilet Paper -- 100% Recycled".

Now, I don't know about you, but just the thought of 100% Recycled Toilet Paper makes me want to go kill a tree just for my own use. Why would anyone want to buy 100% Recycled Toilet Paper? Who the hell even thought of 100% Recycled Toilet Paper? And why? Does that person still have his/her job?

My God! Come to think about it, there is so much more gross stuff to be 100% Recycled; of course he/she still has a job! There's Kleenex® (people always ask to borrow Kleenex®), diapers, tampons, and soap -- so much more that could be 100% recycled. My mind reels and boggles!
