Telefonen ringede hos narkopolitiet, og en mand sagde:
Jeg vil gerne anmelde min nabo. Han gemmer narko i sit brænde.
Straks kom narkopolitiet, endevendte og kløvede alt brændet,
men de fandt ingenting. Dagen efter ringede naboen:
Havde du besøg af narkopolitiet?
-Og kløvede de alt dit brænde?
-Okay, så er det din tur til at ringe.
jeg trænger til at få gravet min have...
An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned his situation:
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden because your mother always loved planting them. 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 plot for me, if you weren’t in prison.
Shortly, the old man received this telegram:
‘For Heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up the garden!! That’s where I buried the GUNS!!’
At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.
Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what had happened, and asked him what to do next.
His son’s reply was:
‘Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad. It’s the best I could do for you, from here.’
