Germany, home of the Christmas cookie scented toilet paper
I usually think that Germans are pretty much immune to fads that sweep over other countries, but once in awhile they surprise me. Scented toilet paper for example. I have nothing against scented toilet paper, but I think it can be taken to extremes. Feast your eyes on "Happyend" toilet paper. Not only printed with Christmas themes, but also with a speculaas scent ("Spekulatiusduft"). Really Germany? Really?
