Cabbages and kings. Well bathrooms and barbecue, anyway. It would appear that Charmin bathroom tissue is a proud sponsor of Memphis in May's famed Pig-a-palooza. We mean, of course, the barbecue fest. Charmin has announced that it will be bringing the "Potty Palooza," an 18 wheeler that transforms itself into 27 fully functional, "home-like" bathrooms, to Tom Lee Park this weekend. Charmin claims that Potty Palooza provides "thrones fit for a king" andpromises those lucky individuals who elect to use the rolling attraction for all their bowel-moving needs (what else?) a "Royal Flush." According to Charmin, over 52,000 sheets of T.P. will be used by festivalgoers, which seems modest given the size of the booties this event attracts. And all of the baked beans, of course.
