The Great Toilet Paper Debate is Over

When you’re putting a new roll of toilet paper in your restroom, should the paper hang in front of and over the roll or behind and under the roll?  It’s a difficult question to answer and has been the subject of countless arguments!

If you’re on the “over” side of the debate, I’ve got good news. A writer named Owen Williams found a picture of the 1891 patent for perforated toilet paper and posted a picture of it on Twitter.  This picture shows the roll with the paper going over the roll: twitter.com/ow/status/577665896241504256

So there’s your answer.  Over wins!  Over wins!
