An old man lived alone in Idaho. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, Bubba, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his
predicament.

Dear Bubba,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my potato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the lot for me.

Love Dad


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


Dear Dad,

For heaven's sake, dad, don't dig up that garden, that's where I buried the BODIES!

Love Bubba


At 4 the next morning, F.B.I. agents and local police
showed up 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 potatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.

Love Bubba.

for those who dont get it... the son sent his letter saying "where i buried the BODIES" so that way, the FBI/police would dig up the garden, which is what the father wanted him to do in the first place. There werent any bodies, the son just did that so he wouldnt have to dig it up... get it now??? Anyway, GREAT joke!!!

That reminds me of the joke about the two robbers the guy got rid of my phoning the police the second time and telling them he shot them.
