A True Story

An old Arab man lived alone in Idaho. He wanted to spade his potato

garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, Abdul, who used to
help him, was being held by the FBI for aiding and abetting
The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.
Dear Abdul,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't able 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.
Your Dad,
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
Dear Dad,
For heaven's sake, don't dig up that garden, that's where I buried
the biological weapons.
At 4a.m. the next morning, F.B.I. agents and local police showed up
and dug up the entire area without finding any weapons. They apologized
to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another
letter from his son.
Dear Dad,
Go ahead and plant the potatoes now. That's the best I could do
the circumstances.
