An Australian newspaper recently printed additional pages to be used as toilet paper after coronavirus fears caused customers to panic and cause them to buy supplies in bulk, leaving some supermarket shelves empty.
The Twitter handle of the @TheNTNews newspaper published a video titled "Yes, we actually did it #toiletpapercrisis".
The front page of the NT News newspaper also says: "We have printed an eight-page special extract with practical cut lines that you can use in an emergency."
When the post went viral, Twitterati flooded social media with their reactions.
The hashtags like #ToiletPaperEmergency or #ToiletPaperApocalypse are trendy online.
One user wrote, "Now all you need is a 6 inch nail on the back of the door."
Another wrote: "Brave attempt to steal customers from the Daily Telegraph, which is usually used for toilet paper."
"Let us know if you have sold more copies because of your" special insert "." asked a user.
One user said: "Good !! I'm going to buy a large truckload of your beautiful paper !!"
Amid the fear of corona viruses, physical stores like Costcos, Target, and even Walmart saw paper napkins, wet wipes, toilet paper, hand sanitizers, and disinfectants flying off the shelves as shoppers hurried to stock everyday products.
