The Government's determination to impose a socialist solution to the nation's burgeoning spate of material shortages took what officials called a major step forward when police seized a hidden stash of 2500 rolls of previously privately owned toilet paper.
These last remnants of a vital commodity have been rescued from the hands of the selfish and will now be redistributed according to the rules of social justice, President Nicolás Maduro boasted. There will be no more hoarding. Everyone will get an equal share.
The allocation is estimated to amount to one-twenty-fifth of a sheet per person. That's a piece measuring roughly one inch by one-half inch. Those wanting to claim their share are asked to present themselves to the Ministry of Communes and Social Protection offices between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and to show a photo ID in order to receive their allotment of this rescued commodity.
