Half-Wit--"Nuff Said"

A man owned a small farm in North Carolina. The North Carolina State Wage & Hour 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 the agent.

"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 who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, he pays his own room and board, and I buy him a six pack of Pepsi 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.
