We should all have worked this out by now but, it seems, some places still have to learn that socialism really doesn't work, not even a little bit:
The new programme, launched last week, uses crowdsourcing technology to enable users to let each other know which supermarkets still have stocks of the tissue.
Called Abasteceme – "Supply Me" in English – the free Android app has already been downloaded more than 12,000 times.
Creator Jose Augusto Montiel said most downloads have been made by residents from the capital Caracas.
He said: "Lots of things are in short supply, but what people are most worried about is finding toilet paper. People never knew how much they needed it until it started running out."
According to the government it is wicked anti-government forces that are buying up the loo paper so as to "destabilize" the country. Yes folks, socialism is both useless and stupid!
