A famous lawyer’s son wanted to follow in his old man’s footsteps, so he went to law school and graduated cum laude, and then joined his old man’s law firm.
At the end of his very first day at work, the son rushes into his father’s office and says:
“Daddy, daddy, in one day flat, I solved the Ramaphosa case that you’ve been working on for so long!”
His old man screams: “You f***ing idiot! We’ve been living on that case for ten years. What are we gonna do now for money?”
Barry Varkel, an attorney of the High Court of South Africa and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales.
