BRITAIN’S idiots are beginning to realise that cheap paper for wiping your bottom is not a valuable commodity like gold or diamonds.
Experts hope the realisation will lead to toilet paper being freely available in supermarkets again soon, in a historic day possibly known as ‘Brown Monday’.
Professor Henry Brubaker of the Institute for Studies said: “Toilet paper isn’t a good investment, nor is it a useful medical device. It’s good for removing poo and wee and that’s about it.
“Our research suggests that even if you become ill you probably won’t need extra toilet tissue, and in an emergency a damp J cloth would probably do the job.
“Also you can’t really sell it to your neighbours for 50 quid a roll without them coming round and beating you up when the crisis is over.”
Hoarder Stephen Malley said: “I was expecting bog roll would become so valuable I’d be a multi-millionaire and lead the life of Lamborghinis and swimsuit models I’ve always craved.
“Now my dreams are shattered and I’ll get a bitter reminder of what could have been every time I wipe my bum.”
