How about bibles?  I hear those are plentiful and tend to be printed on tissue paper.

There's no toilet paper in the country.  It's "a media campaign that has been generated to disrupt the country."
Does anyone really believe this sh*t?

Venezuela is only just now out of toilet paper according to the article. Some 70 ye old on about how it the first time he's ever seen it. We can therefore deduce that the problem is a disruption of production for whatever reason rather than a lack of productive capacity. And of the problem really is just a matter of turning up the knob, why wouldn't the factory owner turn it up dispute the price controls? His prices are held below "what the market will bear" but he's still making money on every roll.
