An alcoholic witness in Germany was having trouble with his memory in court . . . so the judge ordered that some schnapps be brought in to help his memory!
Judge says: 'I think you need a drink,'
Alcoholic says: 'I think I do too your honour.'
The judge summoned for a court official to go to the off licence to buy two small bottles of weinbrand - a nearly 40 per cent proof German brandy much loved by gentlemen of the road which can cost less than 60p for a 100ml bottle
