Dialogue taken from television commercials

Keira: "Are you a folder or a scruncher?"

Me: "A scruncher. What are you?"

Keira: "A scruncher. Dad's a folder."

Any Australian will probably understand to which commerical I am referring. Toilet Paper is the subject, so the question stands: Do you fold the toilet paper when you....you know. Or are you a scruncher?

Haha! Hubby loves those cause he abuses me for being both! He is a folder, and Miss Nearly 4 is a folder, but Miss Nearly 3 (also Keira) is a scruncher. Couldn't think where thay got it from.

Good grief! Are Australians scatological too? I thought it was just the Brits.
My dad [existing in otherwise all female household] was convinced that we all ate toilet rolls as we managed to get through a tonne of them.
But to answer your question more precisely, I'm a wadder. A wadder usually has a close relationship with a plumber as wadding tends to result in a blocked toilet.

I'm so a scruncher. Doesn't folding take too long and not provide enough thickness. I was taught not to take heaps off the role, hence am not a wadder.

I'm a scruncher! Husband is a folder - or possibly a wadder. I haven't studied his technique in close detail, you understand!

I'm a folder.

Hmm.. seems like the scrunchers are slightly in front!

bryce - thanks for that. I did toy with the idea of looking it up in youtube but I thought "nah - that won't be there" obviosuly, everything in the world is there now!

I'm a folder and can remember having this conversation at a dinner party more than a dozen years ago.. it was hilarious.. particularly when some doofus couldn't work out what we were talking about!

To be truthful, it had never occurred to me until now that scrunching was an option.

depends on my mood - or if i'm in a hurry! perhaps scrunching is hereditary? on chromosome 20?

I swear I'm both... which tells you something about me... No system to anything I do...
