The NT News Prints Emergency Toilet Paper Liftout For All Those People Who Have Run Out

The NT News Prints Emergency Toilet Paper Liftout For All Those People Who Have Run Out

The NT News is a loveable news organisation that has built a name off not only providing up-to-date information about all the goings on in the Northern Territory, but also for having formidable banter.

But the newspaper has upped the ante by giving the people of Australia exactly what they seem to be so desperate for: toilet paper.

They forecast this cheeky joke yesterday in a tweet that most people didn't take seriously.

It read: "WE ARE PRINTING A SPECIAL 8-PAGE LIFTOUT OF TOILET NEWSPAPER TOMORROW IN CASE YOU CAN'T FIND ANY AT THE SHOPS."

Well, they have most certainly delivered.

In today's edition, The NT News included a liftout of blank pages, which also had toilet paper sheet sized markings on them so that people could really start building their stockpile.

The front page of the paper also says: "Run out of loo paper? The NT News cares. That's why we've printed an eight-page special liftout inside, complete with handy cut lines, for you to use in an emergency. Get your limited edition one-ply toilet newspaper sheets."

If you've somehow missed all the commotion about loo roll in Australia then thank your lucky stars because it's been one hell of a ride.

People have been panic buying as much toilet paper as they can humanly fit in their trolleys and cars because they believe they will need it if coronavirus becomes more prevalent.

Tradies Stumble Upon Massive Mountain Of Toilet Paper In Sydney

It's a strange development considering there have been no warnings about a shortage of the product because of the virus and Covid-19 doesn't usually cause patients to need the bathroom more than usual.

Then, last night, people were shocked that a truck carrying thousands of rolls of the stuff burst into flames on the Gateway Motorway near Murrarie in Brisbane.

Thankfully, the driver managed to get out unscathed however the same can't be said for the loo roll as a lot of it was burnt to a crisp.

Authorities have been warning people against stockpiling toilet paper and some stores have even introduced restrictions.

People shopping in Woolworths will only be able to buy four packs each while one Aldi store in Sydney said customers could only buy one unit of one thing.

There was even an altercation at a Westfield Woolworths in western Sydney yesterday in the toilet paper aisle.

One of the country's largest producers of toilet paper, Kleenex, released a statement saying that there is no need to panic buy their product as there is plenty of stock to go around and there will be for the foreseeable future.

"Australia, don't panic!" the statement read. "We are working around the clock at our mill in South Australia to keep the supermarket shelves stocked with Kleenex Complete Clean toilet paper."

'As you can see, we won't be running out any time soon."

So everyone just needs to calm down a little.
