Simon Cowell’s Raaaaacist Toilet Paper

Update: the comments say that The Blaze link may have something dodgy about it. I have enough filtration stuff going under Chrome that I don’t get hit, but you are warned.
This story really piles dumb on dumb, but there is an interesting point. First, black toilet paper:

Really, Cowell himself doesn’t matter, and his taste in wipe even less. The motive for this post, though, comes a little further along:

The book paints a picture of a man who struggled for years in the music business, spurred on to success out of a desire to prove his detractors wrong.
“He had 20 years — more than 20 years — of humiliation,” Bower said. “At school he was a total failure and as a music producer he was a total failure.
“But what he did have was charm and an ability to understand the music business because of all this failure.”

This invites the question of whether Cowell could have made it as a blogger.

    I very strongly suggest you take down that link to the Blaze story. The second I clicked on it, I got something telling me it supposedly found a virus on my computer and was going to do a scan of my computer files. I had to jump through hoops to keep it from doing so.

    That’s a phony ad that tries to get you to click and taken to another site to sell you virus software. Usually just annoying and not dangerous but YMMV.

    Black TP? What’s the point? Why not brown? That would be as stupid.

    Me I like white so’s to check the color and condition of what I’m wiping off. It’s not something I enjoy but it’s good to keep tabs on what’s coming out just like you exercise care on what’s going in.
