On April 1, 2021, Duolingo, a popular language learning website and app, announced that they were releasing a new product: Word-a-day toilet paper. 

This is another April Fools' Day joke that straddles the line between prank and reality. While Duolingo is not investing heavily into these Duolingo toilet paper rolls, they did manufacture a few of these toilet paper language learning tools that they will be giving away via their social media channels.
