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