'Just about anything is stronger than the rand'
#StrongThanTheRand makes fun of the Rand falling to its lowest point in 14 years.
JOHANNESBURG - In the eternal words of popular television series character Phil Dunphy…
"When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be like, what?!"
Social media users are at it again… This time taking shots at the South African currency.
StrongerThanTheRand makes fun of the rand falling to its lowest point in 14 years.
The fall-out on global stock markets and South Africa's current account deficit has been cited as driving factors behind a further plummet in the rand.
This morning, the local currency had been hovering around the 20,85 mark against the British pound after reaching a record low earlier this month.
The rand is at R13,27 to the US dollar and R15,22 to the euro.
Scroll through some of the twitter reactions to shake off the blues surrounding these unbearable facts.
