Littleton, Colo., has toilet paper all over the street.
That's on purpose. The toilet paper isn't a prank, but it's being used to seal cracks in 120 different streets roads, The Denver Post reports.
There's some science behind it: The toilet paper absorbs the oil in newly laid tar, which makes it stick there and prevent the tar from splattering all over your wheel wells. And it breaks down in a few days, so it won't look ugly for too long.
But it does look weird for a while.
We use it so we can keep moving and get more done.
As a bonus, it lets drivers get on the newly tarred road right away, rather than having to wait until it reopens.
And Littleton isn't the first to try this. Lincoln, Neb. has been in on it for a while, the Lincoln Journal Star reports.
Of course, the jokes write themselves.
