The Obsession With Toilet Paper?

Roll of $100 bills on a toilet paper spindle

What is it about toilet paper that has so many people obsessed with it. It is as if they think that will be the new money. 🤪 That, in a rather strange way, is what this post is all about.

I gotta tell you up front that I live in a rather small town in the very conservative State, so I am sure we have more than our share of survivalists around. When they heard that their leader in the Oval Office was finally convinced that the pandemic was not a hoax to keep him from being re-elected, they immediately rushed to our local supermarket and bought up every available roll of toilet paper. That seems to be a pretty strange priority among them. Rushing to the gun store to stock up on bullets and new guns is understandable, but why toilet paper?

Maybe I missed the Fox New broadcast that TP will become the new currency during these end-times. But even that doesn’t make any sense. To hear them tell it the pandemic will soon be followed by the rapture so why do they need toilet paper at all? For those of you who don’t know what the rapture is here is a little to explain it. Here is what Wikipedia says about that:

So, if they are going to immediately heaven why do they need all that toilet paper? Why don’t they leave some for the rest of us who will still be here? It just doesn’t make sense. Fortunately, with my wife’s primary hoarding characteristic we had a rather large supply even before we heard the word “pandemic”. So, if I personally won’t run out of toilet paper. I have a lot bigger problem than how to wipe my butt.
