Kids doing what kids do best.
What is arguably the most frequently used two-word phrase in the UK right now? Even in the world perhaps?
You guessed it, toilet rolls. Or whatever you want to call them, loo rolls, bog rolls, it’s all the same and it’s been this way for a couple of weeks. You probably think you’ve heard it all by now. How is there anything more to talk about when it comes to toilet rolls? Surely there isn’t?
Well, we’ve got a story for you and if the reaction of the internet is anything to go by, then there’s a good chance it’ll stick a smile on your face.
It’s all thanks to Ed Cumming’s tweet from earlier on today, documenting the unfortunate stockpiling situation that his friend found herself in, thanks to her children.
The tweet read: “My friend bought 18 loo rolls and her kids put them all in the bath”.

In fairness to her children, loo roll is probably really fun to play with at bath time.
If you think the tweet’s great though, just wait until you read some of the responses. It only gets better.
Throw some pasta into that and it’d be a sure fire quarantine kit.— allviewsmyown (@allviewsmyown1) March 16, 2020

You laugh but that's what all of our brains are going to look like in a few days' time.— Richard?Godwin (@richardjgodwin) March 16, 2020
Give the kids a rolling pin, a bucketful of the mush and a washing line. Should keep them busy.— Martyn Williams (@MartynWilliams2) March 16, 2020
There's even more great responses as well, so go and have a read.
If there’s anything reassuring to take from stories like this, it’s that we’re all still able to have a laugh at ourselves. Even amid the unprecedented circumstances we are currently facing, you can’t knock the Great British sense of humour.
