And, according to the medics, the UK has at least 12 and maybe even 14 weeks before the infection rate reaches its peak. I'm waiting for the blame-game to start .... won't that be fun...

Do they know they're in a prime virus-spreading situation there? Glad I live in the nosebleeds, no major lines at the store yesterday. No bog roll either, but I only needed some garlic bread anyway.
You use garlic bread? Doesn't the crust cause irritation?

"lawn", ooh, get you!! - what's wrong with grass for yer arse?

I can only think the bog roll is being used for other than its intended purpose - due to the threat of isolation

For those too young to remember, here's the Youtube link to the 1975 BBC series Survivors - All episodes.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...n7sC49v0qD3q3Z

One series synopsis states " It concerns the plight of a group of people who have survived an apocalyptic plague pandemic, which was accidentally released by a Chinese scientist and quickly spreads across the world via air travel. Referred to as "The Death", the plague kills approximately 4,999 out of every 5,000 human beings on the planet within a matter of weeks of being released."
45 years before it's happened.... Absolutely spooky. Love the flared trousers. But they had no trouble over toilet rolls......

Trump on TV now, would be funny if it wasnt so serious. "That wasn't me, I have people, I dont know anything about that...."Mike would you like to say something? Throwing Pence under the bus for the dismantling of the pandemic response team.

Most of this stuff is available online if you want to avoid the queues.

I'm also not above stealing bog roll from work, I have the key to open the dispenser thingies.

The toilet (roll) might be the only reason I go in to work now we are out for six weeks.
