This week’s double helping of WTF comes to you from South Africa, which in addition to suffering the loss of its iconic leader and moral lodestar, Nelson Mandela, also has to put up with this crap:
- “A Fake Slum for Tourists Who Don’t Want to See Real Poverty.” If you’re curious about what it’s like to live in squalor, but not that curious, check out the Emoya Luxury Hotel and Spa, where for $82 a night you can stay in “the only Shanty Town in the world equipped with under-floor heating and wireless internet access”. Reviews hilariously describe it as a “A Real Experience“. (H/T: Everyone who sent this to us; thanks guys!)
- “Orania: The All White South African Town for Liberation of a Minority.” Yes, that’s right, it’s a whites-only enclave dedicated to preserving Afrikaner culture against the ongoing threat of… black South Africans having political and economic rights. It must be terrible to be so oppressed.
