Slaughter and May's predilection for decorating its reception full of sweeties can melt even the hardest of hearts. Apparently, a certain gentleman from Cazenove, the most up-market stockbroker in the whole of Christendom, used to sneak into Slaughters' reception and sample as many sweets as he could. Obviously, as Cazenove is one of Slaughters' oldest clients and is staffed by direct descendants of God Himself, the law firm wasn't going to kick up a stink about it. Tulkinghorn, however, feels a challenge coming on. Anyone who manages to procure a pound of Slaughters' sweeties and sends them to Tulkinghorn will win a bar of Willy Wonka's Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight. And those who can get a whole bowl could be in line to win a golden ticket to Mr Wonka's famous factory. Now you can't say fairer than that.
