Underpaid Half-Wit

A man owned a small farm in Norfolk.

The Department of wages claimed he was not paying proper wages to his staff and sent a representative out to interview him.

‘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 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.

Also very true because most business owner put in alot of time and don't make millions. Unlike large corporation owners who make millions and pay their workers little.

So as a small business owner I feel like a half-whit also.

No comment. I wouldn't lower my self to join in with such moronic commentators. If you have nothing to say, why say it?

Wow David you're such an idiot. You just DID lower yourself to join in the comments you moron, and you obviously didn't have anything to say yourself so why are you wasting everyone's time?

I think that was the point. Oshi-

It's funny because the farmer is clearly struggling with alcoholism, and will likely die of cirrhosis. And it's also funny because it sounds like he has the worst pay of all.

its not funny cause he SOUNDS like he has the worst pay... he does have the worst pay!! stupid ass!!

It would be funnier if it weren't so spot-on true. Farmers do get paid ass and the government doesn't give a damn that they get paid ass. I'm from a rather "hicky" part of the US (originally), so I've seen this happen within the bloodline.

Actually, though, as I'm sure is true with most of you (except the first guy), I had the punchline by the second line.
