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.
That's funny because it sounds like he has the worst pay of all.ReplyDelete
That's the joke, idiot.ReplyDelete
Hi Anonymous, thanks for making that clear.ReplyDelete
^ sounds like a real winnerReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
So as a small business owner I feel like a half-whit also.
You should add a spoiler alert to your post, you just gave away why it was funny!ReplyDelete
wow! really?? i didn't catch that at all. thanks again for pointing that out to me. i would've been sitting here for a while...ReplyDelete
That's funny because we don't know what kind of farm it is.ReplyDelete
^--- Wow... That's funny because you sound like you're four years old.ReplyDelete
Oh! Now I get it!ReplyDelete
It is funny because the wife wears pearl earrings. You guys have no sense of humor whatsoever.ReplyDelete
I am actually that very farmer. I saved up that 10$ a week to buy the internets and post this.ReplyDelete
Man, comments are way better than the joke... heheReplyDelete
This might be the least funny joke of all time.ReplyDelete
Shut the fuck up you stupid clowns, its funny because it sounds like he has the worst pay of all. God you are all idiots.ReplyDelete
No comment. I wouldn't lower my self to join in with such moronic commentators. If you have nothing to say, why say it?ReplyDelete
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?ReplyDelete
I think that was the point. Oshi-ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
holy eff...cirrhosis? That made my week.ReplyDelete
I just came.ReplyDelete
its not funny cause he SOUNDS like he has the worst pay... he does have the worst pay!! stupid ass!!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Actually, though, as I'm sure is true with most of you (except the first guy), I had the punchline by the second line.
I'm glad this joke has brought us all together :)ReplyDelete
I kinda ruined it for myself... I knew the pinch line by line 3 :/ ahh well...ReplyDelete
the joke is not that funny but the comments are HILARIOUS!!!!ReplyDelete
Still a better love story than twilight.ReplyDelete
Its funny cause in soviet russia car kills youReplyDelete
Omg lololol the joke is so lame but the comment made this rofl !! Thx guys!!ReplyDelete
2 years later, the joke is still funny. The farmer IS the half-wit. Classic.ReplyDelete
