The French Are Hoarding Bread

While US and Australia hoard toilet paper, the French are hoarding something a little more edible. They are stockpiling bread. Apparently access to fresh baguettes is so important to the French people, bakeries have been deemed an essential-service business and are allowed to remain open despite strict social distancing regulations.

"We've seen people come in who want to buy 50 baguettes at a time. There's something like a psychosis in some people."
Mr Labbe said there need be no concern over supply, even as some bakers have taken to placing a limit on sales per client.
"We have flour, yeast and salt. There is no problem to produce bread."

Let's all pray for the health of everyone, especially those who provide essential services. Long live the baguette!

In times of crisis, always hoard perishables. Makes perfect sense.Why does e'rybody need so much TP? Because now when anybody coughs or sneezes, everybody shits themselves.

Well, when you run out of TP, you gotta use something. Good thing that the French bake a lot of bread and here in America, we grow a lot of corn.

First, the term Spokanistan had me laughing so hard. Glad to see you are keeping your sense of humor. It hasn't gotten as bad here in Portland, yet. Sunday I was able to find one bag of Orange Chicken at Trader Joes. They also still had plenty of bread. Many of our local bakeries are also still open, but with limited hours. That will probably change soon. Unlike France, our government doesn't deem local bakeries to be essential. Stay safe and healthy out there.
