Obviously, the only redeemable quality of this entire toilet paper saga is the surplus of memes that have come out of it.
Now transcending the Aussie sphere, the whole world is laughing at us in the #ToiletPaperEmergency tag, because only Aussies are dumb enough to think that stocking up on toilet paper is the most actionable demand of the coronavirus crisis.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of the supermarket scuffles as people are buying stacks upon stacks of toilet paper because coronavirus will… make us shit in a continuous stream for the rest of our lives?

Stocking up on hand sanitizer and pocket tissues I understand, but this is just stupid. Okay, so you’ve stocked up on toilet paper… now what? What is it going to achieve? Congrats, you may have a clean ass, but ya hands are still dirty AF.

Anyway, here are the best #ToiletPaperEmergency tweets so far, and maybe they’ll redeem us of the stupidity of our nation.
I understand the final action sequence in “No Time To Die” involves James Bond in hand-to-hand combat with an Australian supermarket shopper over a 4-pack of toilet paper.#ToiletPaperApocalypse #toiletpapercrisis

I’m offering a roll of toilet paper (original wrapper) for a week’s all expenses paid holiday in Hawaii for two, plus staff.

It’s Australia. It’s 2020. We have the media camped outside a toilet paper manufacturer asking workers“how was their day?”
Yep, this country is done.🤦♂️
