An Elderly Italian Man Living Alone.

What Follows Next Is Hilarious.

An elderly Italian man living alone wanted to plant his small annual tomato plot but the ground was too hard and he couldn’t use a shovel any more.

His only son who used to help him was in prison and he wrote to him describing his predicament.

“Dear Vincent. I’m so sad I am unable to dig up our garden this year. I’m just too old and weak now. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. Love Papa”

He got a letter back a few days later saying

“Dear Papa. Don’t dig up the garden, that’s where I buried the body. Love Vinnie.”

At 4 am in the morning a team of police and forensic specialists with digging machines arrived at Vincent’s door, entered his home, went out back and dug up his entire yard.

They didn’t find any bodies.

A few days later he got a letter from his son in jail.

“Dear Papa. Go ahead and plant your tomatoes. This was the best I could manage under the circumstances. Love Vinnie.”
