    The University of Colorado is blaming "defective" toilet paper for expensive plumbing problems -- including overflowing toilets in 27 academic buildings on the Boulder campus -- that janitorial workers had to deal at the end of the spring semester in 2009.

    In a lawsuit the CU Board of Regents filed last week in Boulder County District Court against Waxie Enterprises Inc. and Royal Paper Converting Inc., officials said they had to call on plumbing contractors and use augers to clear sewer lines in response to the troublesome toilet paper.

    In total, CU spent more than $40,000 dealing with the plumbing issues and repairing damage that resulted from the faulty tissue, according to the lawsuit.

    I'm not surprised. I bought some Great Value tissue last week that is quite sturdy. Seriously, using a normal amount of this tissue is like holding a Bounty paper towel folded in quarters.

    "In some cases there were toilets bubbling over and overflowing toilets, and toilets that simply wouldn't flush and would cause some flooding and backed up drains," Hilliard said. "It ranged from water coming out of floor drains to outright flooding in some buildings."
    Not just overflowing, but bubbling over! That's some impressive toilet paper.

    Angle TP sounds pointy and painful.
