Christmas conundrum

Today is 1 month – only 30 days – to Christmas day.

It’s time for one of my favourite bits of confusion of the year –  wrapping paper street sellers.

Wrapping paper street sellers round my way always advertise their wares in the same form – “Ten sheets a pound your wrapping paper. Your wrapping paper, ten sheets a pound.”

What is it with flipping the sentence round like that? Are they on some sort of tape loop?
