PostSubject: Cornish Farmer   Thu Aug 12, 2010 5:23 pm

..Dennis Penberthy, an elderly Cornish farmer, received a letter from
the

Department for Work & Pensions, stating that they suspected he was not

Paying his employees enough and they would send an inspector to
interview

them.



On the appointed day, the inspector turned up.



"Tell me about your staff," he asked Penberthy.



"Well," said Penberthy, "there's the farm hand. I pay him £240 a week,
and he has a free cottage.



Then there's the housekeeper, she gets £190 a week, along with free
board and lodging.



There's also the half-wit. He works a 16 hour day, does 90% of the work,
earns about £25 a week, along with a bottle of gin every week, and,

occasionally, gets to sleep with my wife."



"That's who I want to talk to," said the inspector, "the half-wit."





"That'll be me then," said Penberthy.
