RUSH: I made a prediction on Monday. We spent a lot of time on Monday with toilet paper demonstrations, one sheet and all that, bouncing off Sheryl Crow’s admonition that we ‘save the planet’ by using one square of toilet paper per bathroom visit, and I said this. This is what I said on Monday on this very program.
RUSH ARCHIVE: Here’s the lesson. She’s serious about this. Now, I fully expect, by the way, before the end of the day, ‘We were just joking to make a point,’ is what they’ll say. But they’re serious about it.
RUSH: Well, sure enough — because I know these people, folks. I know them like every square inch of my glorious (and still, amazingly, shrinking) naked body. Here’s Sheryl Crow yesterday on Good Morning America. The correspondent, Bianna Golodryga (I never heard of her) was interviewing Sheryl Crow, and the producer of An Inconvenient Truth, Laurie David, on their global warming tour bus and they had this exchange about toilet paper.
GOLODRYGA: I wanted to go by and see if I could spare a square in your — in your bathroom there —
GOLODRYGA: Tell us how this happened.
CROW: We leave an empty roll in there.
CROW: We’ve run out of toilet paper.
DAVID: Yeah, we have run out of toilet paper!
CROW: We’re just — we’re just so happy that people are talking about global warming today, even if it’s brought about by a joke.
RUSH: Yeah, they also wrote their piece on the Huffing and Puffington Post out there saying that it was all a joke. But it was not a joke. This has been on the wacko environmentalist list of ’50 Things to do to Save the Planet’ since the late eighties. So, it’s not a big deal here. I just wanted to let you know. I predicted it. I know what they’re going to do before they even do it. By the way, CNN went to me, America’s Anchorman, and a caller to demonstrate the nation’s reaction to the requirement of Sheryl Crow, the one-square solution for bathroom visits. This is a montage here of reporter Jeannie Most’s story.
MOST: (toilet paper) This is a story that kept unrolling and unrolling. A toilet paper tale that stretched round the world, from Australia to London. Rush Limbaugh’s listeners rushed to experiment.
EIB CALLER: It rolls up to the size of a penny. I don’t know what the heck you’re supposed to do. You can’t blow your nose with it. You can’t do anything with it. This is utterly insanity.
RUSH ARCHIVE: Well, now, wait. Did you try the four-ply, or were you using the cheaper two-ply?
RUSH: They did not get to the actual demonstration that was foisted upon me unwittingly. (chuckles)
