A FOUL-mouthed note to selfish panic buyers has gone viral as the Delta Covid variants force parts of Australia to lockdown again.
The note addressed to "s***heads" was found in the toilet paper aisle of a supermarket on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.
The tongue-in-cheek has now done the rounds online and appears to be written by a prankster on behalf of Woolworths, Coles and ALDI
It reads: "Listen up s***heads. We have a simple message to all those idiots jamming our stores and car parks.
"We've got plenty of food and other items in stock. We've got warehouses full of them.
"We won't run out unless you b******s keep listening to other bogans on social media and snap up every item we stock before it even hits the shelf.
"As for toilet paper, FFS stop asking for it. We have plenty to go around if only morons like you stop buying every roll for no good reason.
It signs off with: "We value your custom and support but Jesus Christ, some of you are just f***wits."
The prankster's note was shared on Reddit, with many users appluding the author for placing the note on the shelf.

“And I bet you the staff just didn’t happen to notice it either. They want that notice there as much as anybody!” said one.
Added another: “It makes me feel proud when I see my country telling it the way it is!”
Wrote a third: “That’s gold!”
Said one more: “I wish every single store message talked like this!”
Seven Aussie cities are now in lockdown in a desperate bid to prevent the spread of the Delta variant.
On Wednesday there was a rise of cases to over 200 – forcing nearly half of the population into stay-at-home orders in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Darwin, Townsville and the Gold Coast.
Authorities fear the virus could now spread to Aboriginal communities which are already vulnerable.
Leaders have urged faster vaccinations as just 5 per cent of the population are fully vaccinated.
