Subject: Half-Wit Employee

 A man owned a small Ranch in Texas. The Texas Work Force Commission claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

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

 “Well,” replied the farmer, “there’s my farm hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.

 “The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $150 per week plus free room and board.

 “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 $10 per week, pays his
 own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon 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 Rancher
