The following is a joke we've nicked from Lincolnshire Voice, so thank you to Lincolnshire Patriot, and to John. Heaven knows, we need a few giggles these days. Though some of our beleaugred farmers and small businessmen might find a grain of truth here...

A man owned a small farm in Ireland .

The Irish Internal Revenue determined he was not paying proper wages to his staff and sent an investigator out to interview him.

"I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them!," demanded the investigator.

"Well," replied the farmer, "there's my farm hand who's been with me for three 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 halfwit.

He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here.

He makes about £10 a week.

He pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of whiskey every Saturday night.

He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."

"That's the guy I want to talk to...the halfwit!" said the agent.

"That would be me," replied the farmer.
