Judge Tim Toffee

Taking his seat in his chambers, Judge President Tim Toffee faced the two opposing lawyers.

“So” he said, “I have been presented, by both of you, with a bribe”.

Both lawyers start squirming uncomfortably in their chairs.

“You attorney Varkel, gave me R 750,000.  And you, attorney Lucas, gave me R 500,000”.

Judge President Tim Toffee then reaches into his jacket pocket and pulls out a cheque. He hands the cheque to attorney Varkel.

“Now then gentlemen, I’m returning R 250,000 to attorney Varkel, and we’re going to decide this case solely on the merits”.

  1. If reality realy existed we all live in hope but we all know there is cracks in every system more so in africa well in most of the third world

  2. If you happen to be down town near the courts you might just see Judge President Tim Toffee climbing into his Black Porche Cayenne or perhaps taking the boys out for lunch. Which ever the system is a well oiled machine.
