A clever son

Dave sends a funny one.

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

Dear Fred,

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 troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.



A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Dad,

For God's sake, don't dig up that garden! Don't do it!! Don't tell anyone!! That's where I buried the BODIES!!!



At 4 AM the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area - but nothing was found. 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. Sorry about the cops but it was the best I could do under the circumstances.
