英抓娃娃机改抓卫生纸

 

卫生纸

 

An amusement arcade has replaced toys with toilet rolls in a claw machine as coronavirus fears have sparked panic buying across the UK.

由于对冠状病毒的担忧在英国各地引发恐慌性抢购,近日一家游戏机厅将抓娃娃机中的玩具换成了卫生纸卷。

Eddy Chapman, 34, has come up with a plan to halt the hoarding in Bridlington, East Yorkshire, after being baffled by terrified shoppers cleaning supermarket shelves in the past few days.

过去几天里,恐慌的消费者将超市货架上的商品抢购一空,这让34岁的游戏机厅老板埃迪·查普曼非常困惑,于是想出了一个办法来停止东约克郡布里德灵顿人们的囤货行为。

The arcade owner has replaced the stuffed animals in the grab machine with toilet paper rolls which punters can try to grab for just 30 pence a go.

查普曼把抓娃娃机里的毛绒玩具换成了卫生纸卷,玩家每玩一次只需30便士(约合2.7元人民币)。

Chapman said this was a way to spread some cheer in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

查普曼表示,这是在新冠病毒危机中播撒欢乐的一种方式。

He said: "I think all this panic buying of toilet rolls has been ludicrous, and so I came up with this idea to hopefully get people to calm down."

他说:"我认为这种恐慌性购买卫生纸的行为非常可笑,所以我想出了这个主意,希望能让人们冷静下来。"
