If two-ply toilet paper is good, then three-ply tissue must be better. At least that's what toilet-paper researchers in northeastern Wisconsin hope.

Yes, there is such a thing as a toilet-paper researcher. And a team of them at Georgia Pacific's Innovation Institute in Neenah has come up with a three-ply version of its Quilted Northern product.

The new product will be launched Monday. The company touts the toilet tissue as "ultra-soft" and says it plans to market the product to women 45 and older who view their bathroom as a "sanctuary for quality time."

Industry analyst Bill Schmitz is skeptical. He said extra layers make toilet paper stronger, not softer, although he said Georgia Pacific may have added extra fibers for softness.

Will you buy 3-ply toilet paper when it comes on the market?

Just another marketing ploy to get you to pay more. Just like the 2 blade razor then the 3 now the 4 is out. Hell there's so many blades it's so tight the whiskers don't wash out at rinse.

I hate the extra soft TP as it disintegrates mid-use and leaves little rolled up bits of paper behind on my behind.

Yes, because there is nothing worse than having the toilet paper rip and getting crap on your hand.

"sanctuary for quality time." ROFL

Another example of Germans being technologically superior: they┬┤ve already invented 5-ply toilet paper a long time ago.
