A Joke

An old Jewish man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his potato garden but it was tough work as the ground was hard. His only son, Saul, who used to help him, was in prison for Insider Trading and Stock Fraud.

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

Dear Solly,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my potato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.

Love, Papa

A few days later the old man received a letter from his son:

Dear Papa: For heaven's sake Dad, don't dig up that garden, that's where I buried the money & stocks.

Love, Solly

Here's the punchline.

Nice and clean. Not many of those out there now a days.

I knew it as a Mafia joke, with the son as an enforcer and his first letter saying "that's where I hid the bodies!"

This is a /little/ kinder. ;)
