Saturday Joke of the Day

My mom sent me this a long time ago but I still like this joke so I am sharing it here.

An old Italian man lived alone in the country. 
He wanted to dig his tomato garden, 
but it was very hard work as the ground was hard. 
His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in 

The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his 

Dear Vincent, 
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be 
able to plant my tomato garden this year. 
I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. 
If you were here my troubles would be over. 
I know you would dig the plot for me. 
Love Dad 

A few days later he received a letter from his son. 

Dear Dad, 
Not for nothing, but don’t dig up that garden. 
That’s where I buried the BODIES. 
Love Vinnie 

At 4 a.m. the next morning, 
FBI agents and local police arrived and dug 
up the entire area without finding any bodies. 
They apologized to the old man and left. 
That same day the old man received another letter from his 

Dear Dad, 
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. 
That’s the best I could do under the circumstances. 
Love Vinnie
