When you get to be our age, you might find yourself sitting on the toilet a bit longer than you used to. And when you find yourself sitting on the toilet for longer periods of time, you might start to notice just how boring sitting in a bathroom can be. Unless youíre sitting in the graffiti paradise that is the stalls at a seedy downtown nightclub - and for the sake of your wellbeing, we certainly hope you arenít - there isnít a whole lot to look upon from the seat of the porcelain throne. Sure, you could get a book of crossword puzzles, but those get pretty old after a while, and they start to pile up uselessly once youíre done with them. And who even knows what an ďEratoĒ is, anyways?
If you want a fresh new alternative to keep your mind sharp and occupied while your bodyís indisposed, look no further than Sudoku Toilet Paper. Sudoku is a Japanese number grid puzzle thatís gained a lot of popularity in the rest of the world in recent years. Each square of this standard-sized roll of toilet paper has a separate Sudoku puzzle on it, so youíll never run out of puzzles to do. Best of all, you donít need to worry about the finished puzzles cluttering up your bathroom, as you can just use it for its other function and flush it away when youíre done! Or, if youíre really proud of your numerical wizardry, you could frame it and hang it up, but we really wouldnít recommend that if youíve also used it as toilet paper.
Weíre not really sure how youíre supposed to fill out the puzzles, as our pens just poked through the toilet paper every time we tried. Maybe you could put one of those useless old crossword puzzle books behind the paper so the pen canít stab through.
Oh, and for future reference, Erato is the lyre-playing Greek muse of poets, as well as a very convenient crossword clue with three different vowels in a five letter word. Not that youíll ever need to know that again, since itís highly unlikely for a five letter word to appear in a Sudoku puzzle.
