    A man owned a small ranch in New Mexico. The New Mexico Wage & Hour Dept
    claimed he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to
    interview him.

    "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded
    the agent.

    "Well" replied the rancher, "There's my ranch hand who's been with me
    for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board.

    The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 per week plus
    free room and board.

    Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does
    about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, and I
    buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night."

    "That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit," says the agent.

    "That would be me," replied the rancher
