    Eskom News Newsflash

    In know that I should have posted it under jokes, but I thought it would be more appropriate here.

    NEWSFLASH
    In a drive to save electricity consumption, the light at the end of the tunnel has been switched off till further notice.


    Kindly postpone all hopes and dreams..
    We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

    HAHA, very good. "We apologize for any inconvenience caused." <- Classic Eskom styled sentence. :P

    The light you see in the tunnell today,
    is the "Gravy Train" going the opposite way.

    Another newsflash:

    Please stop referring to load shedding as black outs - in future, to be politically correct, they should be referred to as previously available lights

    Sometimes little things like this makes me realize how depressing our government actually is, well off to take a few Myprodols and some Valium so I can get my sense of humor back.

    I know how you feel. That's why I posted mostly jokes yesterday.

    But at least there's been no loadshedding this week (as long as you discount the mines that are on a 90% leash).

    Apparently there has been no load-shedding anywhere this week.

    Hmm... Maybe they've stopped exporting? There's been no previously illuminated areas where I live.
