I'm kind of wondering if this one would have gone over better a few months ago, when SOPA and PIPA were still on the legislative agenda, but Andrew Couts at Digital Trends points us to a bit of a silly Kickstarter project to get the text of SOPA and PIPA custom printed on a roll of toilet paper (where they belonged in the first place). SOPA is pretty long, at over 70 pages (PIPA was a lot shorter), but there's still some extra space, where backers can leave their "own messages" for bathroom reading about SOPA or PIPA.
So far, the project doesn't have many backers, and looks like it has a pretty good chance of failing, but it is notable just how ingrained the absolute badness of these bills has become in the culture today.
