MOBY DICK TYPED ON TOILET PAPER

  My friend and I once joked that toilet paper should have instructions printed on them for certain people.
One day, the conversation grew from there and turned into a wager that i couldn't (or wouldn't) be able to type out a novel on toilet paper.

Yes, we did have some time on our hands but, as you can see from the photos, I won the bet.

There are four full rolls, one roll (epilogue) is about 1/5 of a roll and one half-roll
All of the rolls of TP came out of a brand new -- clean -- package of 2-ply Cottonelle.
They've been handled very gingerly and infrequently.

As you'll see in the following photos, one or two rolls have a tear at the beginning.
This is where i was trying to pull the paper through the typewriter.

I've kept this mod oddity in a box in a cool, dry place for the last 10 years
and have only broken it out to prove to doubters that I actually did it.

Considering what it's been through, it's in amazing condition.

I will ship these securely in a plastic storage bin with plenty of padding so it won't be damaged during shipping.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
