    We need The Kid Kandoo, whole rode across the Wild West, ensuring bumwad got through to frontier towns, and nowhere would settlers have to put up with clarty tea towel holders. In Viz anyway.

    Whoever staryed this trhead thought they were taking the piss. But it's turning out to be highly educational.

    Just this morning I was thinking of flushing 10 bags of wotsits down the toilet, but thankfully I read this thread first.

    The whole toilet roll thing puzzles me. Why toilet roll exactly? Covid is a respiratory virus. It doesn’t give you diarrhoea. What exactly do people expect to happen that will disrupt the toilet roll supply chain in particular?

    A few people would have always, we need to stock up on toilet roll, someone would have seen them and the empty aisle and sent a tweet about it. Their friends panic and buy a fuck ton of toilet roll. A few aisles seem to be missing toilet roll so more people panic about it running out etc etc

    No doubt some moronic facebook post that's been shared a million times.

    At last I have something to thank Brexit for!
    Started a stockpile of goods early last year and on learning we are a net importer of bum wipe started collecting.
    Got 2 48 packs in the attic and a consignment of special environmentally friendly bamboo bog roll in the living quarters (of the bunker)
    Bring on the bumcopalypse!

    Of all the things to panic buy, I still don't understand why it's toilet rolls.

    Surely now is the time to market some sort of medieval anus scoop?

    Apparently used corn cobs were the go in some places.

    They use scoops in Indonesia.

    (For water not shite. They look like plastic trowels).

    Toilet roll levels fine in Asda.

    However, soap and handwash was completely 100% sold out.

    Turns out Yorkshire never washed its hands before this.

    I live literally 2 miles from a toilet paper factory, I doubt we are a net importer for anything other than price gouging on it.

    There was a guy doing online order picking in our local supermarket , whole trolley full!
    Other shortages were the much heralded pain killers and was a huge queue in the soap / sanitiser section. Flour too, especially strong flour. Are these people really capable of making their own bread? Mustard was on offer, so was making my daughter giggle by suggesting mustard on the anus could keep the coaronavirus away, and also explains the toilet paper panic!

    To be fair it's how we usually buy toilet roll, it's not related to the coronavirus. I think he saves like 10p per roll in the long run.

    Find your nearest factory and prepare the range rover for a ram raid.

    That's a shit load of loo roll to have lying about though. I don't have nearly enough storage for that.
