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