    An old Italian man lived alone in the country. He wanted to dig
    his tomato garden, but it was very hard work as the ground was hard. His only son, Vincent, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.

    Dear Vincent, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I
    won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me.
    Love Pop

    A few days later he received a letter from his son.

    Dear Pop, Not for nothing, but don't dig up that garden. That's
    where I buried the BODIES.
    Love, Vinnie

    At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived
    and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left. That same day the old man received another letter from his son.

    Dear Pop,

    Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances.
    Love, Vinnie

    Sounds like a very similar gag from the "Porridge" sitcom.

    Still makes me laugh, though! The old 'uns are the best ones...
