Absolutely Rand-om OR Bad jokes couched as a Wikipedia entry

Objectively speaking, I’d put my money on Rand as South Africa’s economy is booming. And for a brief while, before the bimetallic rand coins they have in circulation today, SA produced Iron Rands. That was the only time i’d put my money on an Iron Rand. Interestingly enough, the term Rand comes from the Afrikaans word Witswatersrand, the white water ridge that Johannesburg is built on and where its gold deposits were found… i.e. a fountainhead literally and as a metaphor for wealth.

If your name is Atlas, you can shrug in boredom or annoyance now.
