Toilet Paper Origami is Always Over the Top

Historical evidence has surfaced confirming what I’ve known all along: toilet paper is meant to drape over the top of the roll. Otherwise, how is one to fold toilet paper origami? The proof is seen in the following illustrations of Seth Wheeler’s 1891 patent for perforated toilet paper rolls.  The toilet paper is clearly shown in the “over” position. Of course, for your toilet paper to be really “over the top”, you will have to embellish it with an origami fold!
