An old man named John owned a small farm. One day, a government official claimed he was not paying proper wages to his workers and went out to interview him.

“I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,” he demanded of the farmer.

“Well,” replied old John. “There’s my farm hand who’s been with me for three years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 a week plus free room and board. Then there’s the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90 percent 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.”

“That’s the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit,” says the government worker.

“That would be me,” replied the old man.
