The Shortage


Stores in my part of Germany appear to be well-stocked with what seemed a month ago to be the world’s most precious commodity: toilet paper.

You can find different jokes and memes online poking fun at the situation. I’ve shared some here already.

Saturday night though I experienced edible toilet paper, something I had previously seen only in pictures. It was quite tasty, though completely useless if you needed real toilet paper. But you already knew it wasn’t real. Who would put fruit around real toilet paper?

The pictures I had seen of toilet paper cakes were taken in northern Germany, but I guess their popularity has spread, given that this one came from a bakery a couple of kilometres from Sulzburg. These days everyone can use a little something to laugh at.
