The last toilet-roll of our current pack was slightly squashed so that the centre is now elliptical, and it goes bump-bump-bump on the holder rather than unreeling in an orderly manner. Annoying.  Between this and Jair Bolsonaro, I don't know what the world is coming to.

Yeah man, spare a though for us Brexit chumps who are going to have to start using dock leaves in the first week of April...
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Perhsps this thread will need renaming "Third world problems" post brexit.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Or maybe we'll have an entirely new one 'Where are there lots of rats/neeps *delete as appropriate* right now?'

Look on the bright side.

After Brexit we can go back to using Izal Medicated.

(which, by the way has reminded me of when my cousin hosted a French exchange pupil for his 14 year old daughter. The poor French boy was petrified and said nothing all week. His misery was compounded by falling ill with tonsilitis mid-week.  He was taken to the doctor, given a prescription, which my cousin duly purchased. However the boy refused to take the pills. In fact the only thing he accepted was a foil pack of Strepsils.

The following day my cousin found one floating in the toilet.

The French, eh.  ::-)  )

As you were.

I finished the last of the chocolate dipped cherries in kirsch I brought back from the most excellent chocolatier in Bruges at the end of August.
Sad now.

Ketchup is fine in small quantities (IMHO) - a bit on the side to dip the chips in, never drown them in the stuff.

Over here in USAnia, Amazon will deliver jumbo-sized packages of said product.  Someone determined that squashing the rolls to make them more nearly rectangular allowed use of a smaller shipping box.  Every roll goes bump-bump-bump.  Mrs. Moleman76 does not like the effect - reminds her of 'controlled release' dispensers from days of yore.

possibly a philosophical question, but can you have a rectangular ‘roll’?

Only if there is nobody to see it.

Or something like that ;D

Actually in the "Steepest Street" thread there was a link that mentioned ho bricks would roll down the slope so there may be something in it
