I sense that this is their way of telling us there are alternatives to keeping warm this winter and load-shedding will be on steroids this year’s winter.
Johannesburg, South Africa – The City of Joburg is offering tips to save energy and keep warm this winter but the internet cant deal.
The official City of Joburg Facebook account shared a picture of a “foiled up bed” saying that there is no need to be cold this coming winter.
“Retain body heat by making use of aluminium foil as your winter duvet this winter #saveenergy.”
But the internet can’t deal, and South Africans have been leaving funny (and concerning) comments on the post (thank goodness we’re able to laugh these things off).
