Dear 100 Hour Board,

Today my favorite campus lunch joint was fresh out of napkins. A little bird told me that BYU had a campus-wide napkin shortage earlier this week. Was there really a shortage? Where do all the napkins at BYU come from, anyway?

A: Dear Mr. Messy Face,

Sorry about the napkin shortage you experienced. My napkin source, who temporarily fled the premises, stated that the napkins come from a wholesaler, but she couldn't remember the name. Not that it matters anyway, right? She said that their supply must have been backordered, causing a chain reaction all the way to the consumers (i.e. having no napkins). But never fear, you have napkins again.

Gotta hate backorders,
