Eve Sinton, Upper Main Arm

Congratulations, you stupid, deluded Mullumbimbians who cleaned out the toilet paper aisle and depleted the rice and pasta shelves. This will not save you from COVID-19 – but it is totally unfair to people NOT seeking to stock-pile, but who have simply run out of dunny paper.

The virus doesn’t even give people the shits, but I’ve got the shits with you!

However, like most of us anywhere near this first-world town occupied by too many gullible idiots, I have a fully functional shower and will use that for a far better bum-clean than toilet paper.

The town is like a ship of fools. I would have expected better.

  1. Panic-buying in case of a disaster only creates more and more panic, which is a disaster.
    Oops, did I just “manifest” that.
    The best defence against COVID-19?
    Simple household soap; and giving everyone a little more personal space.

  2. I have 6 rolls you can have Eve. Maybe it will get you by till the loo paper faery arrives.

    Let the paper know. They can email me with you number.

  3. Yikes, I thought all the gropers were in Lismore.
    Toilet paper’s no. 1 on the list followed by just
    about anything edible [frozen]. Meat & chicken
    plus soap, bread, soups [tinned], eggs & small
    goods. Even the cheese was ratted. I’ll go
    back when things are calmer. Meantime, stay
    well – all of you.
