An old Jewish man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig his potato garden but it was very laborious work as the ground was rock hard. His only son, Saul, who used to help him, was in prison for Insider Trading and Stock Fraud. The old man wrote his son a letter and described his predicament:
Dear Solly, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to plant my potato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.
A few days later the old man received a letter from his son:
For heaven's sake Dad, don't dig up that garden, That's where I buried the money and stocks.
At 4 am the next morning, a team of FBI agents and local police arrived at the old man's house and dug up the entire garden area without finding any money or stocks. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son:
Go ahead and plant the potatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.
Your son, Solly.
