- A social media user had South Africans in disbelief following his post
- He revealed a small pack of lamb that attracted an exorbitant price
- Some were convinced that it was an innocent error, but others were quick to respond with comical punchlines
Certain retailers are known for certain things.
Some are renowned for their affordable prices, while others are known for their quality.
Woolworths has become synonymous with premium quality and the brand generally attracts an affluent clientele.
Unfortunately, these traits also add to the perception that their food items are overpriced.
A funny tweet recently seemed to play off this misconception when a man revealed a small pack of lamb that was valued at a bizarre price.
Twitter user S E P H I R I (@sephiritsikeli) shared the controversial tweet and included the caption:
"R734 for 6 pieces. Does this meat have the blood of Jesus?"
The tweet can be viewed below.
Briefly.co.za noted the tweet sparked some lively, but funny debate.
Athi Mabongo (@Queen01A) smelled something fishy:
"I buy meat at Woolies but I'm sure they made an error here, this tray is around R150 and this doesn't look real. Their mutton or lamb is free range."
Levers Manganye Hasani Viii (@Leversmanganye) said,
"Lol you can buy livestock mos with that price."
Xolani bala (@Xolani59829061) added,
"I was gonna buy it if that lamb was raised by both its parents... if not that, am better off braaing my chicken feet."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mmusi Maimane corrected his '44 out of 10' blunder in the most hilarious and ingenious way ever.
He bought some of Woolworths' 'powerful' water and filmed himself drinking it. The video starts out with Maimane repeating his mistake before taking a sip of the bottled water.
