I´m not a native English speaker. Therefore I wrote "tissue" for the contract question and it did not count. Is a tissue and a napkin not the same thing? :D

I’m English (uk not usa) and I would have to agree they are the same. Tissues tend to be a bit thicker but it depends on the ply of the napkin/tissue.

Lifelong Barça fan here. We don't call him "flea" or anything similar in Catalan. As far as i know, Argentinian commenters call him "la pulga", without the atomic bit.
