A Friday Joke For Half-Wits

Sorry I wasn't around much yesterday. It was my wife's birthday and I took yesterday and today off from work. Yesterday, to stay home and pamper her and fulfill her every fantasy, today because we're leaving to spend a weekend away together. Needless to say, I won't be around much this weekend either. I didn't have anything in particular for today but I didn't want to leave without saying goodbye. So...I went through my email joke folder and I'll leave you with this, courtesy of a friend (thanks Bill).

A man owned a small farm in Georgia. The Georgia State Wage & 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," demanded the agent.

"Well," replied the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $150 per week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."

" That's the guy I want to talk to...the half-wit," said the agent.

"That would be me," replied the farmer.

Have a great weekend!

Thanks guys. Have a great weekend.

Ha! I know a farmer - don't think he makes as much as $10 a week though :-p

A belated Happy Birthday to Mrs Bruce, and I hope you both have a lovely weekend. x

I hope you are having a good time, but its been kinda boring around here without you. World Domination is a lot of work and it's not easy filling in two positions.

Hey Bruce, I put the quiz from your blog over on my site, and of course linked it back to yours. Did I get them all right? Nope, but it was fun. :D

Hope you guys had a fab weekend.

Thanks for the comments everybody. I'm back. We had a fabulous weekend. When I've had enough coffee, have my eyes at least part of the way open and get some of this pesky work that they pay me for done...I might actually write a new post.

Happy to hear you had a great weekend!

A bit jealous of the wife though. :o)
