The horror in the toilet

Some people tend to spend much time in the toilet, turning nature’s call into some sort of ritual. Newspapers, magazines, crossword puzzles, portable gaming devices, are some of the items employed to make this happen. I personally know people who, when in lack of reading material, turn to the labels of the bathroom products! What about you? Have you ever been in dire need of something to read while in the toilet? If you answered “yes”, fear no more!

Or should I say fear more? The fans of J-horror will be able to enjoy their favourite genre, even in the toilet, coming June. The idea of having toilet paper with something printed on, is not new, however, having Koji Suzuki write a horror story and then print it on toilet paper is, well, unusual. The product is called DROP and has been dubbed as “Japan’s scariest toilet paper”. And scary it should be, since Suzuki is none other than the one who wrote Ring, Spiral and Dark water (to name a few).

    Ha! Nice but considering the multi-user and multi-use nature of toilet paper you may lose some chapters on the process, let toilet emergencies aside. On the other hand, provided the story is frightening enough, it could help costiveness. :p

    Wow!Imagine though how horrible it would be if you had (as the japanese who now speak fluently english thanks to a certain tv program) “a bad case of diarrhea!”
    Which one would be more terrifying?
