South Africa: Garlic, showers and prostitutes

Lesbian Rules writes about odd suggestions to problems in South Africa: “So there you have it ladies and gentlemen. To be cured from aids, eat garlic and beetroot. If you don’t want aids, take a shower, and All we have to do to stop the electricity crisis is to go to bed early so we can grow and be cleverer and rapes only occur because people don’t have access to prostitutes.”
