“Ran out of toilet paper and now using lettuce leaves. Today was just the tip of the iceberg”

The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic caused panic buying and shortages of toilet paper.

“Had to use lettuce as I’d run out of toilet paper today. I’ll tell you this and I’ll tell you no more, it’s just the tip of the iceberg” was posted on Twitter by Pablo Von Helsing on March 12, 2020. “Ran out of toilet paper, so reduced to wiping my bum with lettuce leaves. I fear that’s just the tip of the iceberg...” was posted on Twitter by JP on March 13, 2020.

Wikipedia: 2019-20 coronavirus outbreak
The 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak was first identified in Wuhan, Hubei, China, in December 2019, and was recognised as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on 11 March 2020.

Wikipedia: Lettuce
Romaine/Cos – Used mainly for salads and sandwiches, this type forms long, upright heads. This is the most often used lettuce in Caesar salads.
Iceberg/Crisphead – The most popular type in the United States, it is very heat-sensitive and was originally adapted for growth in the northern United States. It ships well, but is low in flavor and nutritional content, being composed of even more water than other lettuce types.
