Hump Day Humor: Italian Ingenuity

An old Italian man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his tomato garden, but it was very hard work because the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.

My Dear son Vincent, I feel bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant the tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to do the digging so I could plant tomatoes. Love,Papa

A few days later he received a letter from his son.

Dear Dad, Don't dig up that garden. That's where I buried the bodies. Love, Vinnie


At 4 the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. 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 tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances. Love, Vinnie
