The Old Man In South Dakota

Jan 25th 2011 at 2:35 PM

The So. Dakota Department of government offices claimed a small Rapid City farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

SD Govt employee:  I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.

Farmer:  Well, there's my farm hand who's been with me for 3 years.  I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.

Then there's the mentally challenged worker.  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 so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.

SD Govt employee:  That's the guy I want to talk to...the mentally challenged one.

Farmer:  That would be me.
