A man owned a small Ranch In Texas. The Texas 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 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. 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 Rancher.

Sounds about right. I do think however, that $10.00 a week may be stretching how much we get paid at times.

Ya'll must be big time farmers or something. Heck, I feel so much like a dang mule that I've even dreamed I was one. The dang carrot trick ain't working no more either and I'm getting the strong urge to just sit down.
