R2D2 has done many things in his storied career. Carried Death Star plans. Slaughtered battle droids. Shot lightsabers out of his head. Served booze. But now, thanks to Japan, he can help keep your anus clean as this toilet paper cozy, which… I don’t know. I’m just too dead inside today to feel much of anything. I wish it were because I want to already be on holiday, or because I’m still sleepy, but no. I know what’s coming up. The Pok?mon story. And my body is trying to desensitize itself so I don’t spend the entire weekend crying and cutting myself.

…oh. Order the R2D2 Toilet Paper holder here. (Via Galactic Hunter)

About Author

Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
