(KGTV) - Did an Australian newspaper really print up a special edition with an extra 8 blank pages to serve as emergency toilet paper?

Yes!

Coronavirus fears have people stocking up on essentials, including buying up all the toilet paper they can find.

So in response, the NT News printed a special edition of the paper, with a blank 8-page spread that serves as extra toilet paper if anyone runs out.

The paper's editor says it's selling well.
