Government Work 1 comment

An old man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his potato garden, but it was very hard work as the ground was very dry and hard. His only son, Fred, who used to to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and told him of his predicament:

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my trouble would be over since I know you would dig the garden for me.
Love, Dad…
A few days later, he received a response from his son:
Dear Dad,
For heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up that garden….that’s were I buried the BODIES.
Love, your son, Fred
At 4 AM the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son:
Dear Dad:
Go ahead and plant the potatoes now. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.
Love, your son, Fred
