The Weekly update to life in post-apartheid South Africa.

 

Just the other day a I got fined R 1,000 by the TV licence inspector for not having a TV license. Then I heard about this other guy
who got out on bail for  R 500 after being arrested for murder!
Moral of the story:
 
If you do not have a TV licence, and the inspector comes round, KILL him!
You can save R 500!

An African dies and goes to hell. There he finds that there is a different hell for each country.
He goes to the German hell and asks, "What do they do here?" He is told, "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour.
Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the German devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day."
The man does not like the sound of that at all, so he moves on. He checks out the USA hell as well as the Russian hell and many more. He discovers that they are all more or less the same as the German hell.
Then he comes to the African hell and finds that there is a long line of people waiting to get in.
Amazed, he asks, "What do they do here?"
He is told, "First they put you in an electric chair for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for another hour. Then the African devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day."
"But that is exactly the same as all the other hells - why are there so many people waiting to get in?"
"Because maintenance is so bad that the electric chair does not work, someone has stolen all the nails from the bed, and the devil is a former goverment servant, so he comes in, signs the register and then goes to the canteen..."
