Sure but you can use lots of other things.
You can use 'lots' of things in place of toilet paper? Go on then Tom, like what!

Why toilet rolls?.Never worked that one out.
Australia gets the majority of its toilet rolls from China, so they had a fairly legitimate reason to buy it up quick.
All the brain dead morons over here just went into sheep-mode and did the same, even though most of ours is locally sourced, or from Scandinavia.

One thing this virus has done is highlight just what a huge percentage of thick, ignorant, moronic tw*ts live amongst us!

I found an old roll if it in an abandoned RAF base, in the bogs in the control tower. Naturally I switched the andrex for it in my dad's toilet.

We were with an older friend in Scotland last year and she wanted Izal for a comb and paper Kazoo. She reckons its the best paper for the job (excuse pun) but neither she nor we could find it on sale anywhere. I'm not sure why it would still be made to be honest but we even looked back home without success so if it is still on sale I'm sure our friend would be delighted to know :lol:

Self cleaning and reusable, though I think they would catch on pretty quick and ,cats, not being big on loyalty, will be fairly scarce when needed , specially if they get prior warning :D

So has one of my favourite local shows, "Classics in Cardiff". I'm sure there will be many more event cancellations to come.
