A 60 year old Arab man lived in New York. He loved to plant potatoes in his garden. But he was alone, old and weak. His son was in jail, so the old man sent him a letter.
He explained his problem: “Beloved son, I am very sad, because I can’t plant potatoes in my garden. I’m sure if you were here, you would help and dig up the garden for me.”
The following day, the old man received a letter from his son, “Beloved Father, please don’t touch the garden, I’ve hidden ‘The THING‘ there. I love you too, Ahmed.”
At 4pm the US Army, FBI and CIA visited the house of the old man and dug up the garden but couldn’t find anything. Disappointed, they left the house.
A day later the old man received another letter from his son, “Beloved father, I hope the garden is dug up now and you can plant the potatoes. That’s all I could do for you from here. I love you, Ahmed.”
