Who’s the Central Minnesotan Hoarding Toilet Paper? [PHOTO]
A photo of a Minnesota pickup truck (purportedly driving in Sauk Rapids based on the street signs) stacked with toilet paper has set off a fire-storm of comments.
The photo -- posted to reddit and Facebook -- shows a lifted black pickup truck bearing a Minnesota critical habitat deer license plate. What's really caught everyone's attention, though, is the two pallets of toilet paper in the bed of the truck. Yes, two pallets.

"Well I found all the missing toilet paper," reads a caption across the photo, poking a bit of fun at the state of panic and pandemonium in Stearns County. While the caption may err on the side of tongue-in-cheek, remarks in reddit's comment section are all over the board.
"In the post-apocalyptic wasteland we are heading for, only those with the cleanest asses will be chosen to repopulate the earth," reads one of the more humorous comments. "This man will be an Adam to generations of offspring, and be remembered as a prophet."
"Looks like just enough to cover the aftermath of a meal at Taco Bell," jokes another.
"Step 1: Buy all the toilet paper," reads another comment, seemingly applauding the hoarder's business savvy. "Step 2: ????? Step 3: Profit."
"Assholes like this are opportunists," adds another. "100% assure you he isn't buying them to hand out to people in his neighborhood."
"This person can go right ahead and f*** themselves," states one of the more vulgar comments.
"Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks like 162 packs of toilet paper," someone adds, doing the math. "At a minimum, if it's 24 rolls per pack, that's 3888 rolls."
While most of the comments on reddit assume the worst of the driver, comments on the same photo shared to Facebook suggest another story.
"It’s the manager of Coborns bringing TP from the Coborns warehouse to [Sauk Rapids] Coborns," says one Dylan Roth. "That's what I heard."
