Incarcerated son helps his elderly dad garden from prison

Oct 1, 2011 By Abraham

This is probably an old joke and it’s definitely email-forwardish, but I got a kick out of it…

    The font and the picture of the older man conspired to lead me to conclude that this was an actual news story!

      1. Alysia says:

        He wrote a letter to his father knowing it would be read before being mailed out…. He couldnt dig up the ground for his dad. So he made up the story of the dead bodies in the garden knowing they police would then go dig it up looking for them… Now it is ready to plant his tomatoes,…. Get it?

    1. Tom says:

      I laughed hard enough to make my stomach ache… Give that man some time off for creativity… THAT’S a great story – and I don’t care if it’s true or not – THAT’S FUNNY!

  2. Nancy says:

    Awww so cute!!! Unfortunately alot of tax payers money went to digging up that garden!! But hey- it was for a worthier cause than most tax dollars!!

  3. Shannon says:

    I love how if you put a picture, everyone assumes it is a real story! Abe you could have some more fun with this!

  4. Rainey says:

    Heard this one set in mid-17th century Ireland about the Brits digging up a field… But maybe humour is better if it can be adjusted to different audiences.

      1. Annie says:

        Yes, me, too.. n the one I saw the first few times had gold hidden in the garden, sign of the times, I suppose?!! :)

    hello,i had a daughter that was about to be sentenced to 2 years for stealing which was a crime she never committed,because she was framed up.the court was to give the final ruling on the 3 day of hearing.i was about not to set my eyes again to see my daughter.His dad saw testimonies on people testifying about Prophet larry on the net and his email address was [email protected] that he has been helping people to reverse prison sentences and he is capable of changing the heart of a judge.We contacted him for help and we waited patiently for his works to perfect.and it cane to reality.My daughter was pronounced by the judge not guilty.well i really appreciate his effort towards my family.
