Over or under? Patent solves great toilet paper debate

HOUSTON - The great toilet paper debate is finally wrapping up thanks to a newly discovered patent.

The original patent for toilet paper from 1891 resurfaced on the website Consumerist and solves the debate of whether the paper goes over the roll or under.

Renderings show the paper in the "over" position, indicating the way the inventor intended for it to be used.

The man responsible for the toilet paper patent, Seth Wheeler, is also responsible for the perforation that allows you to tear it off square by square.

So what do you think? Is over the right way to do it? Sound off in the comments below or on Local 6's Facebook page.
