Irony – I haz some.

You know how toilet paper has been in the news lately?


That right there is as low as my TP supply has been in almost 12 years, since the Great Costco Buy of 2008. I’m a bachelor who lives alone: I use toilet paper for one purpose only and just don’t go through a lot. There’s probably 2 years’ worth of toilet paper still in there. So no worries, right?

But I’m also a hoarder – and when you’re about to open your second-to-last package of anything, you think about resupply. And I was thinking about resupplying that not long ago, of course not getting around to it.

And of course, even here in the nethermost regions of Bumf*ck County, the latest social fad has struck…


Toilet paper: This is turning into the running gag of the Coronavirus Panic of 2020.

    If people who have lots of toilet paper decide to barter it in the future, they could call it “butt-coin.” 🙂

    I’ll laugh at them but let them slide on the TP, but the absolute dumbest thing about this buying frenzy is cleaning out the bottled water. Do they think the Wuhan is going to turn off their water or something?

    What they think, Winston Smith, is that when TSHTF, public waterworks will no longer provide output. Same for electric utilities…

    I just visited a Trader Joe’s with nearly 50% empty shelves. They had mostly wine, beer and desert items left.

To the stake with the heretic!
