    An elderly Italian lived alone in Melbourne. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult 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 sad, 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 over a garden plot. If you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days.

    Love, Papa

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

    Dear Pop,

    Whatever you do, don’t dig up that garden! That’s where the bodies are buried.

    Love, Vinnie

    Early the next morning, Federal and State police arrived and dug up the entire yard without finding any bodies. They apologised to the old man and left. The same day the old man received another letter from the prison.

    Dear Pop,

    Go ahead and plant the tomatoes. That’s the best I could do under the circumstances.

    Love you, Vinnie
