Ren is irritated at Stimpy for buying so many useless things from door-to-door salesmen. So when a salesman comes by and tries to get them to buy a new product called salve, Ren prevents Stimpy from buying it. Unfortunately, the salesman keeps popping up in all sorts of places trying to get Stimpy to buy salve, offering it for a wide range of different uses. Finally, Ren is in the bathroom and discovers he is out of toilet paper. The salesman pops up and claims that salve can be used as toilet paper. Ren gives in and agrees to buy some, only to discover that the salesman already sold all his salve to Stimpy.
