Spare a square?

Venezuela is running out of toilet paper.

The country is so low on supply, that the government has taken measures to import 50 million rolls to boost supplies. Some supermarkets have already been wiped dry, while the ones that are still receiving stock are swarming with customers desperate to use the washroom.

Economists blame the shortages on government price controls meant to open up availability of basic goods to the poorest parts of society. The government, on the other hand, blames the private sector for causing shortages in an effort to destabilize the country.

Because a country with toilet paper, is a country without order.

Maybe if everyone only used one square, we wouldn’t have these problems.

Happy wiping.
