Toilet paper marauders

Today I read a newspaper article about the long lines at gun stores from people stocking up on guns and ammo. I can imagine those men talking to their wives now: “Honey, I need to protect your toilet paper. If anyone comes within 50 feet of those precious rolls, I’ll blow their heads off!”

Still, part of me admires the deceptiveness of people who will use any crisis as an excuse to upgrade their hobby. Unfortunately for me, my hobby is music. It would be difficult for me to justify to my wife that COVID-19 requires an upgrade. What could I say to her? “Honey, sure I have a 130-watt receiver and a 250-watt subwoofer, but how am I going to hear the music over the toilet paper marauders? I need more power!”
