Buddy, Can You Spare a Roll?

YES! Today's post is all about . . .

Don't worry if you don't have a huge stockpile of TP!

There are many, many alternatives you can use.





How about a lovely fresh air bidet for all you DIY-ers!



Her Royal Highness the Cat
is not worried in the least --


But for the rest of us,
this experience could leave scars . . . .

LMAO! Some of these are literally savage. Damn.

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

People need to start considering bidets.
Really.

XOXO

Liz Hinds said...

I could cope with tree leaves. Younger Son is in the middle of plumbing in a bum gun. A good alternative.

People are showing their true colors. Me, me, me.

anne marie in philly said...

great, I get newspaper. :(

the cat one is SO spot on!

Bob said...

The socks!

I saw a meme that suggested using MAGA hats,or Nazi flags or Confederate flags.
All good ideas.

Mistress Maddie said...

That fresh air bidet. Now you know someone in the back woods of Tennessee following Trump is using one of those.

jaz@octoberfarm said...

i actually watched dr. oz tell people yesterday to use their hands as toilet paper and then wash thoroughly. this might be the end of the world.

Dr. Theda said...

Enjoyable post, dear Lady Debra

DEZMOND said...

I had the most delightful Dezzy's History Lesson over at Facebook yesterday on what people used in history before loo paper was invented. This could be a topic for one of your future posts, Debs :)

Busy Bee Suz said...

Her Royal Highness is on her own here. :)
Never in my life did I think toilet paper would be in such high demand!!

Brian Joseph said...

It is so strange that this happened with toilet paper. Of course it opens up so much humor.

Moving with Mitchell said...

Oh, so good! Thanks for all the needed laughs! Some thoughts: 1) the guy with 40 cases of water and 200 rolls of toilet paper would be fine had he bought 144 tins of baked beans; 2) Will the fast food napkins shine, REALLY... SHINE? Ugh; 3) So glad I was born in June... baby wipes; and 4) not true about the castaways... of course they packed a lifetime supply of toilet paper for their 3-hour tour.

Tundra Bunny said...

My Dad was a WWII combat veteran and I asked him one time what he used for toilet paper on the front line. He replied, "scrounged paper, leaves or two fingers. A few guys shit themselves out of fear, but no one ever teased them about it".

Help us Cheesus!

Thanks for all the belly laughs this morning, Deb, I sure needed some!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Thanks Debra this really gave me much needed giggles today! The stores yesterday still didn't have toilet paper or tissues. Fortunately living in the country I already stock up on those things.

CraveCute said...

Again, this is why cat's are superior to humans!

Frank said...

I just know that because we did not hoard TP there won't be any available when we do run out. Thanks for the suggestions.

Bathwater said...

We need a few smiles during this. There is a stash of toilet paper at my dad's house. He passed away. I hope my brothers have not gotten it yet.

Rosemary said...

Toilet roll producers must be laughing their heads off as they check out their bank statements.

Jenn said...

HAHAHA, the whole use of TP is weird, like if I got poop anywhere else on my body I wouldn't be just using a a bit of paper to wipe it off. Why aren't bidets more of a thing here? lol sorry to be gross.

Susan said...

I don't know where you find these, but they are the BOMB!

Leanna said...

Great hoarding post.
Really, I wonder why someone has to hoard so much toilet paper. This is not the end of the world.

Lady M said...

Had a good laugh over Gilligan's Island.

Cynthia said...

Not happy with the toilet paper alternative for August. Such behavior would be unseemly at my age. Is it too late to switch birth months? I am 79.

Cynthia said...

PS. Rosemary's comment got my attention. There better not be a govt bailout for the paper product companies is all I've got to say.

e said...

Oh, Great Goddess! I laughed and laughed for the first time in quite a while and it felt good! Thank you, Debra! You are providing a world-wide public service. xoxoxox

bobbie said...

Thanks for the great big belly laughs!!
My favorite is "My Precious"!

The Happy Whisk said...

THESE WERE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the B-day one. Gonna share it with friends. Thanks for the funnies.

Charmin commercials will be my Vietnam.

Tasker Dunham said...

Laughed so much I nearly ... no I won't say it.

Barbara said...

So funny. I think laughter is the best way to survive a pandemic. Keep 'em "rolling."

^.^ said...

"Aile B Back" just totally cracked me up, friend D:) Anyway, here is hoping that you peeps are still doing well? My family and I as well as all in Europe are fine. Much love, cat. PS: … oh, and that cats with legs up pic is priceless!!!

jono said...

Being a single guy I just don't go through a lot of TP. Besides, after the snow melts I can always scoot across the yard like a dog and after the leaves come out they will be available. I just have to remember what poison ivy looks like.
Tried disinfecting the cats, but they wanted no part of it. I was able to stop trying before my blood loss was too much to overcome.

Willym said...

Boy you really wiped up with these ones! Puerile snicker or should that be purelle snicker....

As I said over on my blog:
2019: The Richest 10% hold 90% of the worlds wealth
2020: The stupidest 10% hold 90% of the worlds toilet paper ,,,,,

Anitia Moorecock said...

toilet paper is already at a premium and your trying to make us pee ourselves?!?

Adam said...

I should have enough

Marie Smith said...

Aisle B back is priceless.

Ol'Buzzard said...

You nailed it.

The Captain said...

Luckily we bought our supplies just before the panic started. Good job since I'm quarantined for 2 weeks.

Infidel753 said...

Hey, the Trumpanzees need all that toilet paper they've been buying up, since covid-19 has made them even more full of shit than usual.

The redneck bidet is priceless. But why a Harry Potter book? Don't you people have Bibles?

Guillaume said...

There was some toilet rolls available in M&S this morning. Packs of four, very fancy, in shades of pink, with flowery designs.

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

So funny. I needed this. love the socks...LOL

Joanne Noragon said...

Very nicely curated.

Tundra Bunny said...

@ Infidel753 -- Your comments made me laugh almost as much as Deb's blog... THANKS!

Bea said...

I'm turning my single-occupancy shower into a bidet.

peppylady (Dora) said...

Toilet paper shortage, who would thought. The gentleman I was working for had one of his neighbor begging for toilet paper.

Mike said...

I want to change my birth month.

And don't forget about this use for TP...

I know. It's ridiculous.
I scored big-time yesterday when I bought a case of 96 rolls. I was and am afraid to advertise that on Facebook, for fear of my life. I donated it, and I'm helping deliver to seniors. But I mean, you can find water and other absolute necessities around here. I likely got the last 96 rolls anywhere in this region. Oy.

If Gilligan can do it, we can too.
Stay healthy.

Parnassus said...

About Rosemary's comment. The TP manufacturers are making a bundle now, but since the product does not go bad in storage, there will be lessened sales later as people use up their stocks.

Travel said...

I wonder who created the hoarders panic shopping list and put TP on it?

pam nash said...

Honestly - the DYI bidet made me laugh out loud! Thank you. My personal belief is there is a species of human that must eat toilet paper so while the rest of us are making sure we have tuna, pasta, flour, and sugar - they are the ones grabbing up triple armloads!

HBF said...

Aisle B Back! Thank you for the smiles. It has been so odd seeing the bare shelves in the TP section. My husband read an article that described the phenomenon as adults reaching for teddy bears in a crisis!

This N That said...

This was great..hard to pick a favorite..Thanks for the mood booster..Hope all is well with you two...

Martha said...

The last one! HAHAHAHAHAHA So funny!

Ur-spo said...

90% of the world's wealth is owned the rich
90% of the world's toilet paper is owned by the selfish.

Insomniac's Attic said...

Bwahahaha!

roughterrain crane said...

I hope Schwarzenegger come to my area with the necessary.

AntiquityTravelers said...

seriously! what is up with the rush on TP?? the one about needing this much you should have seen a doctor long before COVID is spot on!

Miss Val's Creations said...

These are fantastic! I love Gilligan's Island and the cats! The hoarding of TP is ridiculous. I understand the food stock up.

Rain said...

Hilarious Debra!! I guess I'm using an old sock lol!

Polly said...

oh dear, I get newspaper! I can remember way back when I was a very young girl visiting some friends of my parents, they had an outside toilet which was a bucket under a wooden bench and a pile of cut up newspaper squares!

DVArtist said...

It is nuts out there.

Bill Lisleman said...

I would like to know which fast food place has the softest napkins. The cats do it again. No stopping them on the internet.

BWBandy said...

Thanks for this.

RO said...

Once again, you've made me smile this morning, and I thank you so much! I should also mention that I'm glad I have toilet paper too. (lol) Hugs, RO

Rommy said...

Thank goodness for meme makers to help us laugh in these deeply weird times.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I've never been happier to be an April baby.

The Blog Fodder said...

Good memes. I do not understand hoarding at all. If you can't figure out what you need for three weeks you haven't been paying attention

mshatch said...

It's the same here. Effing hoarders.

Magic Love Crow said...

Cats are boss! LOL! I love this post! I can't stop laughing! LOL! I had to get up at 7:00am yesterday to get toilet paper, but I got some! LOL! Stay healthy and safe my friend! I hope your Rare One is doing well too!

Fundy Blue said...

I can't pick a favorite. Oh, Lord, these are great! Thanks, Debra!
