The Texas Rancher

(I chose the Humor Section, but I don't see this as anything but REAL and a Nod to American days of Liberty ... gone.)

The Texas Department of Employment, Division of Labor Standards claimed a small rancher was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

GOVERNMENT AGENT: "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them."

"RANCHER: Well, there's my hired hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
Then there's the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally."

GOVERNMENT AGENT: "That's the guy I want to talk to."

RANCHER: "That would be me."
