Extra Pages In Newspaper

The Australian newspaper decided to print extra eight pages that could be used as toilet paper. Isn’t that amazing? The coronavirus scare has lead to shelves being wiped clean, so The NT News decided to tackle the problem with a solution.

This special edition was delivered to the Northern Territories of Australia. The extra eight pages had been left bare and only cutout lines and watermarks were visible. According to reports, the newspaper had an interesting message, ‘Run out of loo paper? The NT News cares. That’s why we’ve printed an eight-page special liftout inside, complete with handy cut lines, for you to use in an emergency.’
