THE FARMER 

A man owned a small farm in Canada .

The Canadian Labour Board was investigating his labour practices. They had been informed that 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 rep. arrogantly.

''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 two-four of beer for 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, 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," said the agent triumphantly!

"That would be me," replied the farmer.
