Texas: Semi tractor-trailer carrying toilet paper catches fire

DALLAS, TEXAS — (KTVT) This is no April Fool’s joke. A semi tractor-trailer carrying a load of toilet paper caught fire in North Texas on Wednesday morning.

It was around 4:00 a.m. when the big rig crashed and burst into flames along Interstate-20, near the I-45 interchange.

  2. This lockdown hoax is going to destroy the country.

    I’m torn between being sad over that on the one hand, and being excited to watch liberal cities erupt into civil unrest, chaos, and burn to the ground.

    Elections have consequences.

  3. This is a genuine tragedy, it should have a national day of mourning declared to commemorate it.

  4. Side note from a comment I made in the Bull Pen a little while ago. Make of it what you will.

    Toilet paper profiteering? I found Charmin at Walmart today. The rolls are 4″ wide. Charmin bought at Costco before the Wuhan Plague hit are 4.625″. That’s 13.5% less paper per roll.

  6. @Uncle Al,
    I noticed that too. It’s as if someone knew this would happen (?)

    Some had to anticipate, and reset the production machinery to meet an increased demand. What’s the lead time for that?

  7. “Some had to anticipate, and reset the production machinery to meet an increased demand. ”

    Not to mention retraining the personnel.

    But American industry can be highly effective at this when it wants to, or when it’s allowed to, as WWII production ramp ups demonstrated.

  8. …when we finally get around to burning Hillary, Pelosi, and Warren as the ancient witches they are, can we use rolls of (gasoline soaked) toilet paper instead of wood? It will be abundantly available once the scourge of the Democrat party is finally ended, and there would be a certain poetic justice to that, as well as the symbolism of “wiping them out” with TP…

    …used toilet paper would be even BETTER, but hopefully the sorts of folks who ENJOY handling used toilet paper will have been destroyed in the Civil War with the rest of the lower level Democrats by the time we get to this point, so that might make finding someone to reroll it for combustion problematic…

  9. @Tim — I can’t tell about the price because (1) Walmart vs Costco, and (2) different package size.

    @AC (10:13) — I’ve never seen a TP production setup, but my guess is that the paper’s wrapped in a long roll that’s than cut into individual rolls. If I were designing such a cutter, roll width would be easily changeable. I believe package wrapping machinery is likely also easily reset for different sizes, or the gadget is inherently flexible enough to wrap whatever size bundle it encounters, within limits. Bottom line is I think changing the size would be quick and easy. But I could be wrong.

  10. Liberal newspapers are turning out tp by the truckload. It does need to be soaked, pounded and rolled out, and dried first. But don’t be reading the shit.

    “But American industry can be highly effective at this when it wants to, or when it’s allowed to, as WWII production ramp ups demonstrated.”

    …this ain’t WWII. Most of our vital prodiction has been “offshored”. Most of the huge paper plants here have been abandoned for decades,with their machinery long since scrapped. Most remaining are either owned by foreigners, owned by venture capitalists, or in thrall to Democrat unions, so they ain’t gonna do NOTHING for “patriotic” reasons.

    And most of the employees are newly arrived Africans, Central Americans (not even Mexicans so much any more), or from all over Southeast Asia, with no ties to this Country, barely the abiliy to speak English, and no skills whatsoever unless you count hiding from the strong man of the moment back home, wiping without toilet paper, and having multiple wives as a “skill”. They mostly get as much minimum wage money as they can to ship back home where they can live on it like kings, with the occasional side business of collecting broken electronics, renting a shipping container as a group, and sending them home for rehab and resale there. Their interests in American politics usually ends with whoever says they can do more for them, although the Islamists are typically under instructions from the locsl Imam to vote for the most damaging candidate for America in order to bring it down so Shari’a can rule. They can barely do their jobs NOW, so asking them to do MORE or something ELSE is completely off the table. Nope, THEY ain’t gonna step it up for “patriotic” reasons, either.

    You’re not retooling that fast, either. The development cycles are not short, there’s no money available for what’s going to be a short run, and a LOT of the electronics have to come from…CHINA. sorry, no help THERE, eithr.

    …no, this ain’t WWII, and the Democrats have spent the last 40 years undermining patriotism and denigrating the United States anyway, so a call to Patriotism (MAGA) would be met with a cry of Racism. It’s what would have happened if FDR had been importing Japanese workers for decades prior to the war, and the Pearl Harbor declaration debates had centered on how the Japanese were just “lashing out” against symbols of oppression. You think we would have gone to war, then?

    …sorry, American Industry will be sitting this one out.

    Because it ain’t industrious.

    And it ain’t American.

  12. Uh oh. It might be time to find Lars’ instructional video “Make Your Own Toilet Paper – Camping Survival And Preparedness 2020” on youtube channel ‘Survival Russia’. Then find a sharp knife and some birch trees, and start scraping. Nah, maybe not. Despite Lars claim it’s as soft & effective as Charmin TP.
