The Half-Wit

From the eMusings mailbag (thanks, M!):

The Half-Wit

A man owned a small farm in Kansas. The Kansas Wage and Hour Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him. "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," the agent demanded.

"Well, there's my field hand who's been with me for three years," said the farmer. "I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 a week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit who works here about 18 hours a day. He makes $10 a week and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night."

"That's the guy I want to talk to!" said the agent. "Let me see the half-wit."

To which the farmer sadly replied, "That would be me."

Having been in business for myself in the past, I know how that poor farmer feels.
