Did you know that toilet paper -- bathroom tissue, as it is properly known -- is actually a fairly recent invention? Therapeutic paper (that's what they called it) came to existence in 1857, so that people could stop wiping themselves with leaves, corncobs or newspapers.

Fascinating to see how yesterday's office report is converted into today's toilet paper. Is that irony? Or just appropriate?
