The largest outbreak of Listeriosis in the world has been recorded these past months and it's making headlines everywhere.
But, a lot of people are having trouble pronouncing the name of the bacteria that has already claimed over 180 lives in South Africa alone.
So, the People's Bae and EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has called on South Africans to help and give Listeria a nickname everyone can pronounce.
"Can we give Listeriosis a new term, cause there is really no point in fighting an enemy whose name we cannot pronounce.", his Twitter post read.
And, Twitter users did not disappoint with their creative ideas for a nickname for the dreaded Listeriosis.
From Cyriliosis Ramapolony to Listas to White Monopolony, take a look at some of the best ideas Twitter users came up with:
4. Lister nton nton
5. Polinna vumanibo
7. White Monopolony
8. Isifo sapholoni
9. Cyriliosis Ramapolony
10. List or Roses
