Could this be you?

The Newfoundland Labour Department claimed a small Green's Harbour fisherman was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

Gov't employee:

I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.


Well, there's my deck 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 worker.

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 whiskey every Saturday night so he can cope with life.

He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.

Govt employee:

That's the guy I want to talk to...the mentally challenged one.


That would be me.
