Final Stage of Socialism — No toilet Paper and Long Food Lines

Venezuela’s Hotels are asking tourists to bring their own toilet paper — because they don’t have any and can’t get any
toilet rollVenezuela’s product shortages have become so severe that some hotels in that country are asking guests to bring their own toilet paper and soap, a local tourism industry spokesman said on Wednesday.

In Merida, a state in western Venezuelan that’s known for its stunning mountain landscapes, small hotels are struggling to stock their rooms with basic supplies, especially as the busy Semana Santa or Holy Week holiday gets underway.

“It’s an extreme situation,” says Xinia Camacho, owner of a 20-room boutique hotel in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada national park. “For over a year we haven’t had toilet paper, soap, any kind of milk, coffee or sugar. So we have to tell our guests to come prepared.”

Perhaps soon the demand for toilet paper will taper off since it’s equally hard to get any food to eat:

Hey Millennialls! You’ve been telling pollsters you prefer socialism to capitalism. Are you nuts? If you could institute socialism in the Sahara there would soon be a shortage of sand.
