Sushi sushi is offering Roll for roll :)
Cash in your toilet roll for a free hand roll ( 1 per customer only , not apply for NSW )
Pretty sure toilet rolls are worth a bit more than a sushi roll in todays panic market. Best value if you exchange a single ply.
Toilet paper is easy and cheap to make, so any supply issues will be fixed quite quickly.
I'm not even sure why this toilet paper thing is a thing. What is the logic behind it?
Like extra small condoms. They always seem to be out of stock for me
Extra large size always seems available to me… :)
IT started in Japan - people panc bought sanitary items produced in China since it was believed production would be impacted for an extended period of time - this ended up not being true as production has already resumed. The headlines were reduced to 'Toilet paper shortage in Japan' due to people buying a years worth of toilet paper, overloading regular supply.
Jump to Australia and people have equated Coronovirus with toilet paper shortages which is not remotely correct until everyone is buying 2 years worth of toilet paper and our regular supply is strained for no reason other than hysteria.
Seeing the Toilet paper isles empty has prompted fears further to supplies such as sugar/salt/pasta.
are sushi sushi doing this to send the rolls to japan?? That would be utterly ridiculous.
I was at my local coles yesterday and was looking for paper towel and saw the whole shelf was cleared - I wonder if I was actually looking at a panic-cleared toilet paper shelf without realising. It was pretty weird.
@Andard: I'm pretty sure they're doing it to get people into their sushi restaurant - you know, the goal of every promotion.
@d3ft: cool thanks for that clever insight.
So what are they doing with all the toilet paper?
@d3ft: You sir. Speak logic and got brains. Thumbs up!
@Andard: no. They are a chinese owned company and they make terrible sushi, it's a shame that Aussies think this is what sushi taste like. they will send it back to china. as you can see in the stores, it is the chinese that are stripping the shelves of essentials. just like baby formula they are stripping stock for local aussies
@ironworthy: Damn. Totally nutty time we are in right now.
Edit: should write a little message on your toilet paper before swapping for a sushi "A corona virus is almost never fatal for a healthy person who contracts it."
@Andard: Do you just believe anything you're told!? They very obviously are not sending it to China (or Japan or anywhere else).
Presumably they might use it themselves or just donate it.
@callum9999: Just a coincidence this promotion is running from a Chinese business as toilet paper is been cleared from the shelves in Australia?
@ironworthy: From what I have seen it is not limited to a particular ethnic group, as nothing ever was
They are a chinese owned company
They are a chinese owned company
Stop spreading fake news, mate:
They are an Australian owned company.
This racist hate towards Chinese people has got to stop.
@brotherfranciz: Australian registered, Chinese owners, stop selling fake news
@ironworthy: This guy gets it. Sorry I can’t upvote more than once. My Japanese/Australian family cops abuse because people think all asians are the same when it’s the Chinese who made this virus and SARS etc. then strip our shelf’s of goods and sell them back in China.
I also wish everyone could enjoy real Japanese sushi.
@BrendanFalcon: Your family member was abused because there are racist idiots, not because there are Chinese people.
The virus was not made by anyone. With you blaming the Chinese here, I dare say you won't do the same to the American who were first exposed to the H1N1 virus, or to the Middle Easterners for MERS, etc
Also, there is no incentive to ship toilet tissues to China because they have an abundant supply. They produce tissues themselves and honestly the rest of the world will soon be relying on their medical supplies.
I feel sad for you because I can see how crappy media has shaped your mind the way they wanted.
@ironworthy: Agreed, Chinese owned and make the worst sushi, all rolls going to China for major profits. Greedy Chinese
I thought japan would be the last country who needs to worry about toilet papers given how advanced their toilets are. With wash and dry function, who needs toilet paper any more?
Wouldn’t food be more crucial than toilet paper? I don’t understand these people logic. Think of it this way, how can you shi3t when you don’t have anything to eat?
@lionh3art: These are uninformed fools that have been told what to think by the news.
The news is currently reporting a pandemic when that doesn't exist.
This is the usual fare for the idiots.
It joins recent stupidity such as Iran attacks America (after America attacked Iran), Solemani carried out 9/11 (when it was US ally Saudia Arabia) and Bernie Sanders is "unelectable" (when he currently leads the Presidential race).
And if you're not an idiot then you have no standards.
@Diji1: You might want to look up the medical definition of the word Pandemic.
COVID19 meets the WHO definition of the word: https://www.who.int/csr/disease/swineflu/frequently_asked_qu...
@Diji1: Hahaha yeh and Hillary won the 2016 election right
Rational logic isn't a thing when people panic.
Let's go China!
And, by definition, the toilet paper will be second-hand. Eeewwwww.
I'm sorry, I don't have a square to spare
This is why they are selling out of toilet paper, makes sense now.
Is this a joke?
No it's not , I think they just using this to promote the brand .
What are they gonna do with those toilet rolls? For themselves?
Hell knows :D
What do you do with toilet paper?
To wrap the sushi?
@hanofee: So I can use seaweeds to wipe my bottom as alternative.
sell it on gumtree
Its a doomsday social experiment experiment.
probably end up selling them, the way the hype is building up - will probs make profit as well!
Is this for real? I can't seem to pick satire from real life any more.
Yep , it's real
Yeah, my wife mentioned it this morning, and about pasta too, and I thought she was joking. It is pretty silly.
This might seem naive, but I try not to worry about what isn't. Especially something that even if it did reach pandemic levels, there is maybe at most 2% chance it would finish me if I contracted it, I can't see the point of losing sleep. I ride a pushbike to work, and my likelihood of death I'd wager are substantially higher from that…
If you had a 2% chance you'd die riding in to work you'd die 4 times per year, on average
Damn that’s some good logic right there !
2% doesn’t sound minor now does it
Let’s say you went to a footy game with 50,000 people and 1000 people died during the game and didn’t walk out ? No biggie right ?
Get ready for a rotavirus outbreak
Do they have to be unnused rolls?
States in the picture full
Full of what though?
I think if you bring used roll then you will get used roll :D
How would it still be a roll if it's used…
holy shit. Literally.
The pope came and shat inside the rolls.
I thought maybe the holy roller eriklee was flush with TP due to immaculate defecation.
Or maybe having traded away their last roll they had meant to type 'shitty hole'.
Yet another person who doesn't understand the use of literally. Literally.
Japanese have a high standard of personal hygiene and use bidets, what will they need all these toilet rolls for
Bidet = wet bum
Bidet = wet bum
Pff Japanese toilets blow warm air on your cheeks to dry them. We truly live like cavemen compared to these advanced poopers.
Pfft no Japanese work in sushi shops in Aus.
Plenty at Bondi Junction Sushi Train
Plenty on the Gold Coast
I have seen these Korean owned sushi places around but I don't go to them. My local is Japanese owned and they do awesome sushi/sashimi and bento boxes, they also happen to be the cheapest place I've ever found.
Sushi roll joints are all run by Chinese, Korean or Vietnamese.
No thanks. I'll keep my $20 roll rather than a $3 roll.
Read the news, they're going for $24000 on ebay, lol
No, they aren’t going for $24000 on eBay. Idiots who think they are funny/clever are putting them up at this price as a “joke” but they certainly aren’t actually being purchased at those prices.
Yeah, it's neither clever nor funny.
And any news site using this sort of exaggeration in their reports are not doing good reporting.
Not $24000 but https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Luxury-soft-toilet-paper-3-ply-b...
@pacman21: Let's bid $100k.
@No ONE: Let's do it! It's already almost at $24k!
What if I come wrapped up in toilet paper and look as a toilet roll?
The desperation, marketing, desperation, desperation… Business must be going really, really bad these corona days.
You are right business is very bad atm , then you need to support them now if you still want to use them in future.
No thanks, we have our "competent" government for that, I'm not here to babysit Australia, that whole crap chanting Australia this, Australian that, buy Australian etc.Now I even have to do an all Australian tour holidaying for rebuilding Australia? Because our "competent" government did absolutely nothing, allowed 1 BILLION! Animals to burn to death, land size of Germany to burn also and I to rebuild? Everythings burning and they are just looking from the distance, not providing funds for fire fighters, for basic equipment, fire trucks, water bombers (3rd world countries lease, are we a 3rdworld country???) No one asks the government WHERE'S THE MONEY!? Enough, enough is enough with false patriotism to close holes on a sinking ship. We paid enough tax's to literally rebuild Australia 10 times over!
Im not gonna even go into how much money we all donated to sect organisations that have collected money for bushfires and most probably none of it will actually go to anyone bushfire rebuilding 😂
Where is the money gone?
WE paid tax and YOU babysit Australia ? Typical troll, go get a life .
@Cadic: Really, is that your argument.
maybe the shop staff will wrap themselves in seaweed and rice and give themselves to you
This is gonna go great in shopping centres where people trade rolls from the toilets.
Or rolls from their office toilets.
Optional expansion -
Don't wash your hands for the FULL experience :D!
1 per customer mate .
Juggling between cause and effect
So we can barter our toliet paper for food now.
are toilet rolls the new currency?
make way eneloop!
That explains why i couldnt wipe my ass at work.
In Australia, first you get the toilet paper, then you get the power, then you get the women.
Thank you. I really appreciate this reference.
Say hello to my little friend
I really want to eat at a place that is taking items quite potentially contaminated by e.coli…
Whoever the idiot is doing the HACCP at Sushi Sushi is quite obviously asleep at the wheel!
(Wait… I'm an idiot… I just realised there is still a bit of cash being handled… comment still stands though)
cash is necessary. dunny roll isn't. sustained.
Great promo by the Chinese owners… No thanks I won't be spending money at anymore Chinese eatery.. No wonder they created the virus with crap like this in their stores
ok. this just got weird. are you planning on taking your used toilet paper?
No it didn't… well… I must admit risk consultancy is a bit different for most people. No… I'm not planning on taking my 'used' toilet paper in… but what is probably in well over 90% of toilets in Australia (domestic)… GUESS?! TOILET ROLLS!!! WHO WOULD OF THOUGHT!!! Usually on a toilet roll holder.
I don't flush with the lid down, hence I'll have e.coli splattered all over the bathroom and guess what… ALL OVER THOSE LOVELY NEW TOILET ROLLS!!! Oh joy!
It is the new bitcoin. ALL IN!!!
