And another one bites the dust. ~
You may have heard about this by now but if you haven’t, there is a massive dust storm happening in Karachi right now.
It started off pretty serious and got even worse.
Reportedly, there was at least one person killed and about twenty other people who were injured during the havoc of the storm. The damage caused stretched to ripped out trees and downed power lines all across the city of lights.
According to the Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD), the storm was stronger than they expected. According to the experts, this sandstorm is to be followed by rainfall accompanied by thunder. However, for now, extremely strong winds seem to have completely engulfed the city.
And yes, the storm has been catastrophic and yes, for residents it has been quite scary.

But for most, this was just another opportunity to whip out all the funny and relatable memes around the dust storm. Yep.
There has been a serious dust storm in Karachi since last night but Pakistanis can’t help but make jokes.

Lot’s of em.
Of course, this may not be the most appropriate thing in the world given that the storm is still currently completely engulfing the city of Karachi right now, but still, these are some funny jokes.

^ Okay, this is just wrong.
K Electric should be given as a test case to a political party, anyone who can fix it will rule the country, because if they can fix K Electric, they can fix the whole country.#DustStorm

And well of course, given that today is the season premiere of the last season of Game of Thrones, fans in Karachi worked their way around themed jokes.
Don’t worry, no spoilers.
Game of Thrones advertising has gone too far by sending a dust storm to karachi
