A man owned a small farm in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Work Force
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
"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," he continued.
"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 bourbon
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.
