Now that is just funny!
Does it cost five times as much but not work very well because it's worried about getting dirty? LOL
Is it thicker than normal toilet paper? Sounds "worth it". :-)
Speaking of ESL applications of "snob", I knew a grad student in the US of Mexican origin, from Ciudad Juarez but born in El Paso. Which enabled him to attend university in the US on the cheap. He had gotten his BA in the US in Philosophy, so he had plenty of language exposure. While on a tour of South America, in referring to your neighbors on the other side of the river, he stated that Argentines had a "snobbistic" reputation among their neighbors. I'm not trying to put the guy down, it's just that I considered it an interesting construction.(After traveling in Argentina, he changed his mind about their being snobbish. Their self-deprecating humor can quickly change that reputation.) There are websites dedicated to entertaining ESL signs.My favorite ESL experience was when I saw a guy in Bolivia with a "Chicago Red Sox" t-shirt. I wish I had bought it off him.
