You are way, way, way too funny. I particularly laughed at the paper towels "substituting toilet rolls ... in people's bowls." I also love "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" (I saw Peter, Paul and Mary in concert many years ago), and you're right that it leant itself perfectly to this challenge.

    Here you go again, reviewing something that only gives you 1 point and 2 measley cents lol! But thank you for your thoughts on this...it came around 4th in the contest if memory serves. I also love that song, and felt a bit mean doing a parody of it, but...what the heck lol! So glad you enjoyed this Michele, and thanks for popping in and reviewing it xoxoxox

    You're right that I don't generally review pieces that will only earn me two cents, but there are certain people - like you - whose work I simply enjoy and want to read, so why shouldn't you get credited with a review? You didn't insult the song with your parody. You merely used it to get across some important points, and make anyone who read it smile when they did.

LOL - this is so clever and such a hoot to read. Yes, we must find humor in this dreadful virus or we'll all go nuts. I bought 24 rolls of paper on Amazon for $25 - I would have paid $50. Hugs, Lou

    Thank you very much for the review and stars. It's a pity you didn't get more out of it than 1pt and 2cents, but...I guess it's not always about that!

    I always try to read people who read me. It's not always possible when I'm having a bad allergy day and can barely send my thank you's.

Where have all the flowers gone, indeed. I didn't need to read your comments below your work, you did such a great job I picked up the song in a very few lines. I was humming along as I read it! Fun, sad, true! Very well done and quite enjoyable. Good luck in the contest.

Love this and I picked up the tune very easily. It all fits very nicely. Good luck with the silver lining contest entry. It's just crazy how people felt the need to hoard so much. I can't help hoping they get stuck with it forever.

Hi, it is sad to hear of people jacking up prices because of the virus hype. I don't get it, we have everything on the shelves, even the loo roll. I hope you are able to get your loo roll soon, lol

I enjoyed your humour today, nice and refreshing to see someone seeing the funny side. Good on you, and thanks for sharing it.

If you are in Australia, they are setting up places for testing and they will have hand sanitiser, masks, and stuff like that to dispense to people who come in to be tested. Health.gov.au are in full swing doing that, all hands to the oars. How long it will be I'm not sure, I think it is in weeks and not months. Eve.
