Wow, well this was unexpected. Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry’s John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum debuted a number one on the SA box office…
Forget avocado. Polony is now the most talked about food on social media in South Africa, this after the likely source of the country’s listeriosis crisis was revealed.
Listeriosis is a potentially deadly illness caused by the bacterium listeria, which can be found in uncooked and processed animal products.
More than 180 people have died in South Africa during the current outbreak.
Minister of Health Aaron Motsoaledi this week suggested that an Enterprise factory in Polokwane, Limpopo was earmarked as ground zero, in addition to a facility in Germiston and a Rainbow Chicken factory in the Free State.
This caused a mild panic on social media yesterday, and #listeriosis trended nationwide. Today, the outlook is a little brighter.
As a response to the nation going cold turkey in light of the cold meats revelation, the hashtag #AddPolonyToAMovieTitle began trending Tuesday. Users took movie titles and shoved a vienna or polony wherever they would fit. And there are some scrumptious, Oscar-nomination worthy examples.

Who knows, Bad Polonies could be the movie that bags Michael Bay that Best Director accolade.
