Thursday Special ~ Taxing

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




With thanks to Hywel for this one.

    WWW – Don’t ya know she was told it was an honour to be that ould fella’s wife, and sure she would only waste the money on nylons or such like. 😉

    Not only does she have to sleep with him, but I don’t believe he does THAT much of the work.
    A man will work form dawn ’til dusk,
    But a woman’s work is never…..What rhymes with dusk?

    Nancy and Grannymar, at least the woman can vote, so what is the problem?

    Oh my god, I’m in so much trouble.

    Mayo – I think your middle name is trouble right now, but I am sure you will find a way round it.
