THE HALF-WIT

There’s something profound about this blurb and not only humorous.  Kind of political and philosophical, too, if you think about it.  Do we truly appreciate those who employ us and provide us a job?

THE HALF-WIT
 
A man owned a small farm in Wisconsin . The Wisconsin State Wage 
& Hour Department 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 who 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 farmer.
