Security Guards stood guard over pallets of toilet paper at one grocery store in Melbourne, Australia over the weekend.
Toilet paper is a hot commodity in most parts of the world where the precious tissue paper is scarce.
The LaManna Supermarket received a shipment of Viva toilet paper rolls, and hired a security firm to stand guard over the coveted bath tissue.
The guards make sure shoppers line up in an orderly manner and each shopper is given a limit of two 6 packs of toilet paper.
Toilet paper is still scarce in parts of the United States, where selfish Americans are hoarding toilet paper to sell online for insane profits.
One woman bought every box of toilet paper from a Dollar Tree store location at 1213 S. Federal Highway in Pompano Beach, Florida on Monday.
"She bought it all and she thinks it's right and okay," said a bystander who captured video that showed the woman loading dozens of boxes of toilet paper, napkins, and paper towels into the back of her pickup truck. A total of 4,000 rolls of toilet paper.
The witness said the hoarder told her to "mind my own effing business!"
"They sold it to me," the shopper said.
"I hope you're not, like, gonna sell it to other people," said the witness. "I bet she likes Donald Trump too."
The shopper responded, "Donald Trump! Go Donald Trump!
After the video went viral, the Miami Herald contacted the Virginia-based Dollar Tree corporation via email. A spokeswoman said:
"Dollar Tree has had a policy in place for more than a week limiting the quantities on select high-demand products sold per customer. Unfortunately, the policy was not followed in this specific instance and we have addressed it with the store team. We appreciate the hard work of all of our associates serving their communities during this unprecedented time."

Idris Elba responded to critics who said his wife, Sabrina Dhowre Elba, should not have appeared with him in his video announcing he tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19).
In a video on Twitter.com, Elba asked his fans not to panic over his positive test. He said he was self-isolating until he tested negative.
But his followers couldn't help noticing Sabrina breathing all over him in the video - as if she too was infected.
Elba wasn't here for the disrespect to his wife.
"Sabrina wanted to be by my side," he insisted in a follow-up video tweet. "As much as we talked about her not coming to where I am, she did and wanted to. And I would do the same for her."
Elba, who has no symptoms, said his wife took the test on Tuesday, and they are awaiting the results, which usually takes 24-48 hours.
In a second video, Elba chastised TikTok users and others who believe the virus doesn't affect Black people due to Black folks having less ACE2 enzyme receptors than other races and ethnicities.
"Please stop sending the, um, conspiracy theory nonsense about Black people not being able to get Coronavirus -- Covid-19," he said. "It's dumb, it's silly, it's very dangerous."
He left out the part that most healthy people - himself included - experience no symptoms or mild symptoms. No other so-called "deadly virus" behaves this way. A deadly virus is usually deadly to most people who contract it -- not the other way around.
So what's really going on?

California's Prop 47 is being blamed for a sharp rise in shoplifting and home burglaries. A shocking video shows a team of females on a shoplifter spree at a Walgreens in San Francisco, a Democrat stronghold city.
The video shows two females wearing black hoodies and face masks, emptying store shelves and throwing makeup into black garbage bags as Walgreens employees look on helplessly.
The shoplifters flee when an employee calls 911 to report the robbery in progress. But critics of the law say calling 911 is a waste of time.
Even if cops caught them in the act, they can't arrest them if the stolen items are worth less than $950. That means criminals can each steal over $300,000 worth of goods annually in California.
Even the homeless are taking advantage of the lax law enforcement in California. They steal beer and anything else that it isn't locked up behind glass.
A single mom told Fox News that Prop 47 is a godsend for low-income women with children.
"If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it. They aren't out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it."
Twitter users expressed their anger and frustration at Democrats and liberal lawmakers who give thieves a license to steal without consequences.

Julianne Hough left her fans stunned as she underwent a bizarre energy treatment in Switzerland on Wednesday, Jan. 22. Hough, who was in Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, demonstrated the unorthodox treatment that looks similar to an "exorcism".

A video of the dancer and actress receiving the treatment, known as Network Spinal Analysis, was shared on Instagram by blogger Jackie Schimmel, WENN.com reported.
In the clip, Julianne lay on a massage table as Dr. John Amaral demonstrated the therapy, waving his arms over her body and touching her lightly on the neck and buttocks.
"There's always a huge dissipation of energy and a feeling of relief release," Dr. Amaral explained.
As he touched her, Julianne began uncontrollably screaming, as her body contorted dramatically and her legs flexed.
Dr. Amaral explained what was happening:
"When energy was stored and bound up in the muscles, it gets to dissipate, and if we're really free to express and allow energy that's been bound in our bodies to move through - this woman is like, an incredible dancer, actress, just, human being, and she has practiced just allowing things to move through."
The former Dancing With the Stars judge was later seen thrusting her hips and raising her arms energetically in the air as she demonstrated how to "throw negative energy away”.
But not everyone was convinced of the benefits of the energy dispersal therapy, which some called "quackery."
Among those to voice their concern after watching the clip was comedienne Heather McMahan, who commented: "Upon viewing this video for the 45 time it is in fact a demon coming out of her butthole."
But Julianne's brother Derek Hough was quick to defend his sibling, writing: "This stuff looks whacky and crazy but diving into it with the understanding of pure energy is a pretty wild experience. Maybe ahead of its time but worth an open mind."

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the Royal Family last week, many wondered whether Queen Elizabeth would take custody of their infant son, Archie Harrison. The Queen snatched Harry and his brother, Prince William, away from Princess Diana after she and Prince Charles divorced in 1996.
According to Heavy.com, the Queen didn't take immediate custody of Archie because she does not have legal custody of him under British law.
The British law that gives the Queen custody of royal children is called The Grand Opinion for the Prerogative Concerning the Royal Family.
The law holds that the sovereign has custody of his or her grandchildren. But because the Queen is Archie's great-grandmother, she does not have custody of him.
When the Queen dies, and Prince Charles ascends to the throne as King, Charles can take custody of Archie - which experts say he will since Archie is in line for the throne.
In related news, Twitter helped the Queen of England to save face by deleting a video that shows her grandson Prince Harry begging the head of Disney Studios for a job for his wife Meghan Markle.
The improper request occurred during the London premiere of The Lion King in 2019.

Iger seemed stunned by the highly unusual request coming from a Member of the Royal Family. He turned his back to Meghan as if to shield her from her husband's embarrassing moment.
But little did Iger know that it was Meghan who put Harry up to beg him for a Hollywood job for her.
It isn't clear if Queen Elizabeth or Buckingham Palace are the lawful copyright owners of the embarrassing video.

The Hollywood Police Department in Hollywood, Florida severed ties with former NFL player Antonio Brown after he disrespected their officers during a public meltdown.
The 31-year-old former NFL wide receiver live-streamed himself shouting expletives at his baby mama - in front of their minor kids and a small army of police officers.
The Hollywood police were called to Brown's home following a dispute with his baby mama on Dec. 14.
"Get the f**k out of here you b**ch a** pu**ies!" he yelled, as police escorted Chelsie Kyriss and their children to patrol cars.
The department was so outraged over Brown's treatment of their officers that they returned his donation for their Police Athletic League field.
"While officers were on the scene, Mr. Brown treated them with disrespect and disdain," said a police spokesperson.
"We made the decision to sever ties between Mr. Brown and the Hollywood Police Athletic League. We did not want our youth to be subject to this type of behavior nor emulate the actions of Mr. Brown."
According to TMZ, cops returned Brown's donation for their 7-on-7 league and they banned him from working out on their field ever again.
"We will not take money from a donor that we cannot have our youth be proud of or represent our organization."
If Brown sets foot on the PAL field again, he could be arrested for trespassing.
