SATURDAY MORNING

THE HALF WIT........

A man owned a small ranch in New Mexico. The New Mexico Wage & Hour Dept. claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to interview him.

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

" Well," replied the rancher, "There's my ranch hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board.

The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 per week plus free room and board.

Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night."

" That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit," says the agent.

 "That would be me," replied the rancher
