    Is it just me or does the ad campaign of a bear doing what a bear does in the woods gross anyone else out? Now they have this one where the mom is scraping toilet paper residue off the cub's bum with a push broom!


    I have never liked these commercials! I hate to say that it's what we buy because it's the softest one at Costco. But, I would never buy it if they offered something comparable!

    Cracking up, here. No I haven't seen that particular one. It sounds a bit over the top. I can't say that these are any worse than the Cialis/Viagra or the various feminine hygiene products out there.

    True. But you have to know that every time I see those commercials I think "Does a bear ---- in the woods?" And there's that first one where the bear was rubbing his backside against a tree? I'm never touching a tree in the woods again!

    I just love the Charmin bears! They are some of my favorite commercials. I absolutely adore the one of the red and blue bears running on the beach for the soft and strong porta potty'

    ONe of DF's infamous "guy in the garage" jokes. I'll clean it up.

    A bear has to "use the potty" so he goes behind some bushes.
    As he's "using the potty" a rabbit hops up to the bush next to him and proceeds to "Use the potty"
    THe bear seeing the rabbit "using the potty" says to the rabbit

    "Hey rabbit"
    "Yes" says the rabbit.
    "Do you have problems with "potty" sticking to your fur?"
    "Why no says the rabbit, finishing his business."
    So the bear picks up the rabbit and wipes his behind with him.

    EVERY Time I see the Charmin bears - that stupid man joke plays in my head.

    But I gotta hand it to the momma bear for rolling the paper back up. I had a room mate one time that used 2 rolls a day. Her DAD bought her toilet paper like - every week by the CASE - CASE!!!!!! And sent me an article about a man who killed his room mate for using too much toilet paper - the note attached said - "No need to try this - already been done."

    He was such a funny man.
