Venezuela Caught Short.. of Loo Roll

Venezuela is running out of toilet roll. It's causing a national panic. Now is not a good time to be a Labrador puppy over there, you could be shot on sight.

People over there have been panic buying loo roll. It's tricky, because you don't want to panic too much, or you'll have an accident and use up all your supply.

The paper shortage is an embarrassing episode for new president Nicolas Maduro, who was chosen as Hugo Chavez’s successor before the iconic leader’s death in March. He has to be careful how he plays this. Take a lead from Marie Antoinette and don't say, "Let them use a bidet."

One person caught up in this told a journalist, "I’ve been looking for it for two weeks. I was told that they had some here and now I’m in line."

It just makes you realise how lucky we are. Even the people suffering in the Eurozone countries don't have that problem. In fact, as the Euro fails and the notes are worth the paper they're printed on, if anything they have more paper to wipe their arses with.

The government has promised to import 50 million rolls in the next few weeks and has blamed the shortage on anti-Maduro forces attempting to destabilise the country.

Yes. If I wanted to bring down a nation I'd do it by cutting off their bog roll supply. You know what they say, "society is two meals away from anarchy". I think it's probably two poos away from it too.
