I think I've had that before.......maybe not splinters but probably paper cuts.

Would this be comparable to the old fashion corn cob?

Better than the corn cobs we used on the farm.

My first tour in Germany, we used German made TP. And they had not quite got it perfected yet. You knew the TP was made from wood, because every roll had splinters, not a huge amount, but you certainly knew when you found one. They had it perfected by my second tour.

Coulda been worse, Theo; a few years earlier it might have been shrapnel.

I was there 56 to 59. Don't remember anything memorable about TP. Most likely because our base used USA issued supplies.

I worked for a Czech Republic company back in 1998-2002. I was their US factory service rep and had to go to the factory every year to learn the new equipment that was being shipped to the US. I was warned to take TP and soap with me and was glad that I did. I always took more than needed and left the excess for the cleaning lady who became very happy and excited each time. She spoke no English and I no Czech, but it was very easy to see how happy she was with my leftovers. Their soap bars were so tiny that you could use one almost up just by washing your hands one time, and it smelled something like Pine Sol. Their TP was light gray and felt much like crepe paper. I did my best to never use either, or definitely not for their intended purpose.
