The United States will have a shortage of toilet paper after a freight boat got stuck in the Suez Canal.
Suzano SA, a company that produces pulp for making toilet paper, told Bloomberg that the Suez Canal blockage will delay their pulp shipments, which means less toilet paper will be made and a potential lack of supply in stores in the coming weeks.

However, due to the shortage of toilet paper that is to come, Dr. Evan Goldstein, a rectal surgeon in New York City said that using a bidet is the ideal way to care for your backside after using the bathroom, which us Malaysians have been doing since forever!
He also said that wiping with toilet paper not only does a less-than-ideal job of cleaning, but the wiping tool can actually lead to injury.
Dry toilet paper can be abrasive, so if someone wipes too hard or too many times, the thin and delicate skin in that area can tear, causing bleeding or pain. Ouch!
So, guys, ditch the toilet paper and clean with water! It saves money and is environmentally friendly, too!
