Rite,

Has anyone ever thought why big arse boxes of tissues are called "Man Size Tissues"?? Have you ever seen a man blow his nose with "Man Size Tissues"?

And also...

That new Bountey kitchen roll shit.... Wot do they mean when the say on the TV ad: Have you tried it wet yet? And: Strong even when wet?? erm.. surly they arnt implying you use Bounty to "clean up" after yourself!!

the fact uve not had to use it to clear up means one of two things...

1) you can catch it in ur mouth/aim in someone else`s mouth

2) you aint a kitchen hoe

As a dedicated contributor to this site I thought I would take it upon myself to do some research for you:

http://everything2.com/title/tissue

History of Kleenex
1924 – Kleenex invented the facial tissue category.
1927 – Ads begin featuring screen star testimonials.
1928 – First POP-UP style cartons with a perforated opening.
1929 – Introduction of coloured tissue.
1930 – Introduction of printed tissues.
1931 – Introduction of Paper Towels.
1932 – Pocket Pack Tissues released.
1941 – Introduction of Kleenex Man Size.
1949 – Eye Glass tissues introduced.
1955 – Napkins introduced.
1961 – Amazing reduced box size.
1954 – Kleenex Juniors introduced.
1965 – Kleenex Purse Pack released.
1967 – First upright carton named Kleenex Boutique.
1990 – Kleenex Ultra – first three-layer tissue.


There you go

1941-something must have happened to make them create man size tissues (sorry I don't know what it was)
