The last toilet-roll of our current pack was slightly squashed so that the centre is now elliptical, and it goes bump-bump-bump

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.
I sometimes unpack and flatten loo rolls so that they will take up less room in the rucksack. They're to recircularise to only slightly out of kilter before use.
Note: this does not work with loaves, so cheese would have to be re-shaped to fit the bread.

You can buy loo rolls without the cardboard centres for camping and the like.

Or you can push the cardboard centre out of a normal one when the bathroom's sufficiently humid.

My mum is phobic about toilet roll tubes and makes a urgh-urgh about-to-vomit noise if you wave one at her. The same for kitchen roll. Childhood pastimes remembered.

Are you sure that they weren't just a form of pasta?

I work for an Italian company and just asked one of my colleagues and she confirmed it's called bogerolli.

Funnily enough, Macrobe's first stop on his great national debate PR exercise was in a place called Grand Bourgtheroulde, and I reckon that great bugger-all will come of it.
