25 METERS


Debt-ridden Catalonia, an autonomous region of equally debt-ridden Spain, has finally begun to take baby steps to solve its financial problems.

According to The Daily Telegraph, new austerity measures include limiting Catalan school children to no more than 25 meters of toilet paper a month. (h/t iDNES) I only have the vaguest of recollections of the dimensions of Spanish TP, but here in the U.S., 25 meters would mean approximately 225 sheets of good ol’ Charmin, or 7.5 sheets a day during a 30-day month. (You get lucky in a non-leap February, with 8.04 sheets!)

Even this slim ration wouldn’t satisfy a snooty one-percenter like Sheryl Crow, but (butt?) I suppose you have to start somewhere.

So Viva Cataluña!, say I, and make it stick! (Uh, I mean the rule.)
