Friday Funny

THE ITALIAN TOMATO GARDEN

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 prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.

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. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me.

Love, Dad



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

Dear Dad,

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 son.

Dear Dad,

Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.

Love you, Vinnie
Ciao

Pam, being part Italian on my mom's side, I could say that I am deeply offended by that joke, but I can't because I am laughing too hard.

I can't wait to tell my mother that one (she is 91 and still gets a good laugh at Italian jokes). One time when I was about 12 years old, she asked me if I wanted to see a funny Italian joke. Like a fool I said yes, she told me to look in the mirror.

I can't wait for your next one, that made my day.
God Bless
