Flashback to the 80s: So Van was watching the 8 o'clock news on TV at a bar and the camera hones in on a guy standing on a building roof about to commit suicide.
"Bet you 10 rand he jumps," says the bartender to Van. "Done," says Van.
Seconds later, the jumper comes to a messy end. Van hands over his ten bucks to the bartender who chuckles and confesses: "I knew it all along because I saw it on the 6 o'clock news."
"So did I," says Van, "but I didn't know he was going to do it again after that."
