I think this dude's expression pretty much sums up the whole shituation:

Also, where the fuck is the nearest baño? ¡Coño puñeta!
Meanwhile, economists are taking a dump on the late Hugo Chavez; current president, Nicolás Maduro is pointing his brown finger at "anti-government forces"; and commerce minister, Alejandro Fleming is stink-palming the media for causing the shitstorm, claiming they created an "excessive demand" for TP.
This Monkey tends to side with Señor Fleming - for a variety of reasons. First of all, many of you read the newspaper while on the shitter, am I right? Secondly, a lot of what you read therein is crap. And finally, if there's a toilet paper shortage, you can always wipe your ass with the waste paper you're reading [can't do that with an iPad, trust me, I've tried]. It's a win-win-win for print media and guarantees ongoing relevance in an online world. Let the fecal festivities begin!
Frankly, this Monkey doesn't get what all the fuss is about. Who needs toilet paper?
Note from Editor: *ducks quickly* Once again, we're not sure where that went awry. For some reason, we give the Monkeys an assignment of economic and geopolitical importance and wind up with a video of a primate peeing in its own potty mouth? Remind us to vet the Monkeys better in the future. Thanks for your patience, as always.
