In the UK, as of today, the government has locked down the shops, theatres and pubs, but the shortages started last week.
Barry has been searching for toilet rolls this past week.
So how much stuff do we really need?
Luckily the Brits answered that question before World War II started.
Just look at this picture.
This is the amount of protein, sugar and fats you need, for a WHOLE WEEK. That’s right. A whole week. And in some cases (eg: sweets/candy) a whole MONTH.
I’ve seen people in North America eat this in one meal.
But what happened to the Brits under rationing? Infant mortality rates decreased, and life-span increased.
What also happened with this diet, and I quote, “their faeces had increased by 250% in volume”.
This could explain the shortage in toilet paper. Everybody stocking up in anticipation 🙂
