Flog It Blog It, That Is Caracas!


Molly The Wally Has Toilet Paper!

Today we hop over to Venezuela were angry citizens are facing a difficult time on the toilet. Mon Dieu the country is running out of loo roll. Many supermarkets in the South American state have completely run out of toilet paper. Worried consumers are queuing for hours to get their hands on a single sheet. The government has rushed to import 50 million rolls. Are they trying to paper over the cracks? However it may be too little too late for many angry members of the public as supplies bottom out. Pensioner Manuel Fagundes failed to find a single sheet during his shopping trip to Caracas and he told our reporter from Molly Media, ‘This is the last straw. I'm 71 years old and this is the first time I've seen this. While Cristina Ramos added, ‘I've been looking for some for two weeks. I was told that they had some here and now I'm in line waiting.’ Butt it is s not just toilet paper Venezuela is running out of, supermarket shelves have also been cleared of milk, butter and coffee as the crisis continues due to low prices set by the Socialist government. Since the death by dictator Hugo Chavez, state controlled prices have been set below real market prices result in hoarding and therefore shortages.  But Chavez's successor President Nicolas Maduro claims anti government forces are deliberately clearing shelves, in a bid to destabilise the country. Hmmm actually we have news for you…..we think it is the Japanese.

  25. Yikes.....things are quite dire when there's a scarcity of toilet paper! I can see it all now - TP sold on the black market, etc. Well, thank heavens there's no shortage here...so far...but perhaps we should start stockpiling just in case!

  27. You might have something there with the Japanese, they sure seem to have enough. Maybe we can all send a roll, Mommy says she would hate to be without it.We could call it operation dirty bottom. I don't get it myself as I prefer to drag it around the house. Each to her own.

  31. Grass could become the super product of the universe then, you can eat it, sleep on it and of course, wipe your bum on it. Dogs already know this of course - just waiting for humans to catch on.

  36. Years ago, a comedian had a skit about a toilet paper shortage. The people who saw it ran out and bought up toilet paper, causing an actual shortage.
