Skip to comments.Sheryl Crow Clears the Air About Toilet Paper Comments
Posted on 04/24/2007 7:06:08 AM PDT by Rb ver. 2.0
April 24, 2007 It all started with a joke.
Wrapping up a nationwide global warming tour, singer-songwriter Sheryl Crow posted a quirky "solution" online about a new way to save the environment.
She wrote: "I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting."
She told the joke to get people's attention, and it worked. Talk show hosts had a field day with Crow's comments.
"Have you seen my [backside]?" Rosie O'Donnell joked on "The View."
"It seemed like Sheryl was trying to be a little bit cheeky, no pun intended," said Michelle Lee, executive editor of In Touch weekly.
Maybe Crow was inspired by her ecoactivist partner Laurie David. After all, David's husband, Larry David, of "Seinfeld" fame, wrote the famous episode where Elaine says to a neighbor in the next bathroom stall:
"Three squares? You can't spare three squares?"
"No, I don't have a square to spare. I can't spare a square," the woman responds.
Meeting Karl Rove
Crow wanted to clear the air about her comments.
"We're just so happy that people are talking about global warming, even if it's brought on by a joke," Crow told ABC News.
And for Crow and Laurie David, their message is everything.
They just wrapped up a successful cross-country ecotour of 12 college campuses to raise awareness about global warming.
The two started the trip in an environmentally friendly biodiesel bus at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, and ended the tour on Earth Day at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
At George Washington, they joined musicians Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Carole King and environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who performed and spoke before a crowd of about 2,000 people.
Crow and David also talked with top White House adviser Karl Rove at the White House Correspondents Dinner Saturday night.
"How excited were we to have our first opportunity ever to talk directly to the Bush administration about global warming," Crow and David wrote on the Huffington Post blog.
It's hard to believe
Crow's not a Canadian.
Maybe she could move . . .
Don’t we hang people for bad jokes?
Even Brawny paper towels flee in horror at the thought.
there was an article in the nyt about a month ago that crow may have read.
the article focused on a young nyc family that lives w/o toilet paper.
and lot of other things too.
a guy with a phd, his wife, a couple of kids.
i thought the article was STOOPID but apparently it influenced crow.
Another botched joke. Maybe liberals need to give up their attempts at comedy.
It was a botched joke
You took it out of context
You misunderstood my meaning (translation: You are just too stupid to understand what I really meant)
Well, according to people like Crow, CO2 is going to destroy the world and toilet paper is going to destroy the world. So, she wants every American to stop wiping, preferrably to just stop excrementing waste of any kind since it pollutes, and to stop breathing because the stuff we exhale is CO2.
Hey Sheryl, just say what you really mean:
HUMANS ARE EVIL BECAUSE WHAT LEAVES THEIR BODIES POLLUTES MOTHER EARTH!
He should know!
When I was a little girl, I unfortunately went to the bathroom that had no paper on the roll. I stuck my head out the door and yelled for my brother to bring me a roll of toilet paper. He stuck his hand in with one square. I said, "This isn't enough." He said, "Use both sides."
This whole issue with Crow brought that memory up again and my husband and brother and his wife have laughed about it all weekend.
“At George Washington, they joined musicians Faith Hill, Tim McGraw and Carole King and environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who performed and spoke before a crowd of about 2,000 people.”
Robert Kennedy played the tambourine accompanied by Linda McCarthy on the organ.
“”We’re just so happy that people are talking about global warming, even if it’s brought on by a joke,” Crow told ABC News. “
What alternate reality does she live in?? We are talking about how STUPID she is, not global warming, now Crow looks even MORE stupid, what does TP have to do with global warming??
What a bird brain.....
Don’t worry Sheryl, when the Muzzies take over, you won’t even need toilet paper, just use your left hand.
She confirms what I’ve always known, liberals believe their s*** doesn’t stink.
Your husband's priorities are in the right place.
My attitude about TP changed forever after my first trip to Crete in '77. The stuff they had in the barracks was closer to medium grade sandpaper.
On my next trip, I packed 3 rolls of the good stuff in my baggage.
The second trip (in '81) was better than the first in several ways: flying commercial (instead of in a C-130), was a member of the advance party (instead of being a green 2LT with two platoons to keep an eye on), and had more time for sightseeing (Heraklion and the Palace of Knossos) and relaxing on a wharf in Chania, although I did get to spend two days in Athens on my first trip.
No Rosie, most people have to schedule a weeks vacation to take a trip that far!
Sheryl Crow is a Flower Child. Pure and simple. “Make love not war” and all of those other neat catch phrases. They all sound wonderful, but Ahmadinejad is not in agreement.
Ah, a botched joke. Of course.
