This is the brainchild of Daniel Blackman, a bloke responsible for coming up with ideas for gift company Thumbs Up.
Thumbs Up seems to have a bit of a thing for toilet-related products, so Danny’s probably considered hot poop in his department.
Anyhoo, the bog roll contains phosphors which sustain a glow after exposure to energised particles such as light, and there’s actually an element of real usefulness to the idea. For campers, or other poo-in-the-darkers, it can be a big help to see the date roll at night in the long-drop dunny or behind a bush out in the mulga somewhere.
We still smile at the poo tickets we saw on a building site where someone had scribbled on the wall above the roll: ‘Pics of your favourite politician. Wipe bum to develop’.
Ha! We love worksite humour.
Expect to pay about $20 a roll.
