Speakers Corncob 0

I spend my junior college year abroad in England.

One of the places I made sure to see was the Speakers Corner in Hyde Park, London, where tradition held that anyone could rant about almost anything without interference.

When I visited Hyde Park, shortly after arriving in London and before catching the train to Exeter, an older gentleman was holding up an empty toilet paper roll and ranting about toilet paper’s being the fundament of all evil.

He was most passionate.

Apparently, the speaker’s message lives on.

He may have a point, but I do not expect to see persons rushing to buy bidets in the current economic situation. And, if they do, the next rant shall be about water shortages.

Judging by the shrinkage rate of the Philadelphia Shrinquier, the columnist’s concerns about deforestation may be addressed through other means.
