A prisoner in jail receives a letter from his wife: “Dear Husband, I have decided to plant some flowers in the back garden. When is the best time to plant them?”


The prisoner, knowing that the prison guards read all mail, replied in a letter: “Dear Wife, whatever you do, do not touch the back garden. That is where I hid all the money.”

A week or so later, he received another letter from his wife:“Dear Husband, You wouldn’t believe what happened, some men came with shovels to the house, and dug up the entire back garden.”

The prisoner wrote another letter back: “Dear wife, now is the best time to plant the flower.”


  1. the original joke is:

    an old man and his son farm potatoes for money, son has to go somewhere one year, dad calls son saying he cant dig it up all by himself, son calls home saying dad dont plant anything, i hid the bodies in the fields, fbi digs the land up, dad can now plant.
