Colored toilet paper was introduced in the 1950s, and remained popular until the 1970s.  Homeowners loved coordinating everything in their bathroom, and could buy colors like pink, blue, lavender, yellow, beige, green, and even black.  
Sales began to decline as doctors pointed out that the dyes could cause skin sensitivities, and ecologists said that the dye could be harmful to the environment.  Scott still produced beige, tan and pink until 2004.  But never fear!  Renova is a company that creates highly pigmented toilet paper, including black and fuchsia.  It assures that it is “colorfast for its intended use,” and is “dermatologically and gynecologically tested.”

The Lion of Lucerne, by Bertel Thorvaldsen.

"The Lion of Lucerne, is a sculpture in Lucerne, Switzerland, designed by Bertel Thorvaldsen and hewn in 1820–21 by Lukas Ahorn. It commemorates the Swiss Guards who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris, France. The American writer Mark Twain (1835–1910) praised the sculpture of a mortally-wounded lion as “the most mournful and moving piece of stone in the world.”
