“It started with a bat, went quickly to toilet paper… We’ve all gone bat, shit, crazy”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, according to one theory, began when someone in China ate a bat. In the United States, there was panic buying of toilet paper.

“It started with a bat, went quickly to toilet paper, and now everyone’s going nuts in quarantine. We’ve all gone bat, shit, crazy” was posted on Facebook by Brad McNamara on April 2, 2020.

So the virus was started by eating bats.
Which led to panic buying of toilet paper.
Now the quarantine is driving people mad.
I guess you could say they’re going bat shit crazy!
