When the man with a gun meets the man with a paper roll

Guns vs. Paper Rolls

It’s one of the most famous phrases of Westerns. It’s Ramon, talking to The Man With No Name other than Joe, during their final duel from Sergio Leone’s A Fistful of Dollars movie: “When the man with a 45 meets the man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol is a dead man.” Nothing more closer to the evolution of the panic of our days. People who crowd around the toilet paper shelves on one side, and people who line up to buy guns, on the other. Who will survive? Perhaps the man with the roll will not find a better opportunity to rush into the bathroom of the nearest saloon, and give an impetuous sense to his weapon. Or, rather, they will work out some new tool useful for both cowboy and pooper.

About the toilet paper revolver, it is real, and once belonged to a man stopped by the Transportation Security Administration agents, on Last November, at the Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey, who refused to let him board with it. Once the agents decided that the passenger wouldn’t be allowed to take the roller with him, he was offered three options. He could either add it to his checked luggage which would be stored along with the rest of the plane’s cargo, give it to someone else who wouldn’t be boarding the plane, or just get rid of it. In a humorous twist, the man was apparently not too attached to the odd item and he decided to let the TSA keep it. Maybe today he could have used it.
