Some of my neighbors liked my idea so they have ordered them. It's catching on. I have now ordered 2 more boxes, I shake a lot of hands, no elbow greetings for me !
Just nod your head to acknowledge a good game. If folks are that paranoid, why play the game at all? Or maybe just stay home away from anyone.

In India they use a rag/hanky and a bucket of water. You don't generally see public restrooms with toilet paper. That way, NO printer's ink on the posterior.

You've got to be kidding.

How about holding your breath, doing a quick hip bump, then running for your life? 😄

I give you credit for responding, however, I think your sample appears to be isolated to the oldest part of TV where it is possible some who have lived through several pandemics are looking at the those who are hoarding TP and water and going WTF?? I've been through Polio, the Asian Flu of '57, the Hong Kong Flu of '68, Swine Flu. SARS, Swine Flu again, MERS, and now Wuhan. I take it seriously but not to the extreme of panic we see nationwide today.

Proof that people think of themselves first and foremost. No judgment. Human nature. Not everyone can or wants to take the next step in the thought process and consider the hazard to other people.

I think the poster was only referring to the plastic bag the newspaper comes in.

Raid Wasp Spray is highly toxic. It has been known to kill a person after eating a sandwich without washing it off of the hand.
