Well, I have been feeling a little flush, lately.
However, if not careful, I could be wiped out.
A few more bad puns and I could be on a roll.

Does anyone remember using toilet paper rolls as oil filters?

Another indicator is the loan shark offices closing up (HFC, Citi etc). When these guys can't loan money, things are looking up.

I can heard the conversation now, "Honey should we buy a new BMW or spend the extra money on three ply toilet paper?"

There are (rough) equivalents to toilet paper.
Get the BMW!

In these difficult times, I know of a guy who recycles toilet paper, he hangs it on the washing line and beats the crap out of it!
