US465588A - US Patent - Toilet Paper Roll

My invention consists of a roll of connected sheets of paper for toilet use, said roll having incisions at intervals extending from the side of the web toward the center, but not meeting, and terminating in an angular out, whereby the slight connection left may be separated without injury to the connected sheets.

A difficulty with rolls of this character as heretofore manufactured has been due to the width of the bond uniting the sheets, which it has been necessary to make of considerable strength to withstand the tension of winding, but which it is desirable should be as trail as may be when the roll is unwound, otherwise the sheets do not separate with certainty and many of them are torn. Attempts have been made to remedy this by incisions in the bond that should not weaken it longitudinally; but such incisions avail little unless the sheets are pulled in a certain direction a condition the user seldom considers or is aware of.

In my improved roll I overcome this wholly by reducing the bond and terminating the lateral incisions in an angular cut, removing all liability of injury to the sheets in separating them. With this construction one sheet may be separated from the next without liability of the incisions turning in a direction parallel with the web and tearing off a considerable part of the contiguous sheet. At the same time I wind rolls containing any desired number of sheets.

This is the most accurate meme representation ever.

Underrated meme^

"Let's get them back in their places by ruining their economy, stunting their industrialization and accidentally causing a debt ponzi scheme that may or may not have been a large contributor to the great depression later."

(The US had a tendency of loaning Germany money for them to pay back GB and France witch they then used to pay off their american war debts)

shrug not uncommon to just call them England or Brittan in the states

Crusaders: Uhh, Enrico, we missed the Holy Land

Enrico Dandolo, completely blind: Oh, uh yeah, I meant to do that

slashing thousands of innocent civilians

"Huh, I didn't know that Saracens spoke Greek"

This is the quality stuff I'm expecting from this sub

"Should we show the crusaders these letters from the Pope adressing how we shouldn't pillage Christian lands?"

"Nah" - Venice probably

I hope y'all know about the Great Pig War of 1859, where the US and UK almost went to war because someone shot a pig.

This is an excellent idea

Why is it the Soviet Union? Wouldn’t this make more sense as Imperial Japan, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy?

Yeah, but memes are meant to be simple to understand. Unless the joke is the complicated part.

The average person would have understood if it was a flag of Japan instead of USSR.

Instead the USSR flag is confusing.

“Soviet Union and the nazis as allies” That’s some seriously fucked up shit right there

Except it never would... Fascism and communism are polar opposites and Stalin actually wanted to invade Germany before WW2 started but France and England refused the deal and so Russia signed the non aggression pact with Germany.
