An old man lived alone in West Virginia. He wanted to spade his potato garden but it was very hard work. His only son, Bubba, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his predicament.
"Dear Bubba, 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. Love, Dad"
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
"Dear Dad, For HEAVEN'S SAKE, Dad, don't dig up the garden! That's where I buried the GUNS! Love, Bubba"
At 4 A.M. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire area without finding any guns. 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. It's the best I could do under the circumstances. Love, Bubba"
LOL! LOVE IT!
LOL thanks, just awesome for a Saturday morning coffee here on the left coast. :)
I am surprised the FBI did not shoot the old man’s dogs and possibly even his cats. Cute story.
Or confiscate the potatoes because Michelle decided they were bad for his health.
These days, the FBI would send a black helicopter with ground-penetrating radar over to verify the site first, before anyone carrying a shovel broke a sweat.
You mean the same way they used all that high technology in their helicopters to NOT find the Marathon bomber?
This is funny. Too good! Thanks.
Good to start the day with a smile.
F@ckin Bureau Idiots
Good comic relief. :-)
That is a cute joke. I guess Bubba might have been a bad guy, but he still tried to be a good son.
Reminds me of another good one:
A blonde walks into a bank in New York City and asks for the loan officer. She says she is going to Europe on business for two weeks and needs to borrow $5000.
The bank officers says the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce, parked on the street, in front of the bank.
Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls into the bank’s underground garage and parks it there.
Two weeks later, the blonde returns and repays the $5000, and the interest, which is $15.41.
The loan officer says, “We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5000?”
The blonde replied, “Where else in New York City can I park my car for 2 weeks for $15.00?
Maybe he should have planted baby arugula.
That is clever and funny as heck.
