The half-wit


A man owned a small farm.  

The Fair Work Office claimed he was not paying
 proper wages to his staff and sent a representative out to interview him.

'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,' demanded the

'Well,' replied the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's
 been with me for 3 years. I pay him $500 a week plus free room and board. He also gets triple time for working on a Sunday and a slab of beer for a Happy Hour every Friday"

'The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $400 per week
 plus free room and board. She doesn't work on Sundays and I provide paid satellite television for free in her room.

'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 $20 per week, he pays his own room and board and I buy him a bottle of whiskey 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.
