‘I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,’ demanded The rep.
‘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/housekeeper has been here for 18 months, and I pay her £150 per Week plus free room and board. Then there’s the half-wit. He 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 whiskey every Saturday Night. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.’
‘That’s the guy I want to talk to . . . the half-wit,’ says the agent.
That would be me,’ replied the farmer.
