Laughter spot : “Don’t dig up that garden”

An aging man lived alone in Ireland. His only son was in Long Kesh Maze Prison and he didn’t know anyone who would spade up his potato garden. The old man wrote to his son about it and received this reply….

“For Heavens sakes, don’t dig up that garden, that’s where I buried the guns

At 4 A.M. the next morning a dozen British soldiers showed up and dug up the entire garden, but didn’t find any guns.

Confused the man wrote to his son telling him what happened and asking him what to do next.

His son’s reply was: “Just plant your potatoes.”
