This is not an original - it's the widely circulated "Squirrel Grenade" 
story. I don't know who wrote it, but I think it's very funny. It's 
long, so I'm posting a link:http://tinyurl.com/yg7dpq

A couple of people have written off list suggesting the University of  
Alabama Joke applies to Auburn, The point is that Alabama jokes often  
look at how the rich Alabama graduates do not earn their wealth.  On  
the other hand, Auburn is the land grant institution in Alabama and  
the Auburn jokes tend to work off the lack of sophistication of the  
country kids that come here.  So just to be fair and because one  
daughter, a son-in-law, and my wife all have at least one Alabama  
degree, here is an Auburn joke:
Alabama Power is an equal opportunity employer, by that we mean they  
hire both Auburn and Alabama graduates.  One day a couple of young  
men who worked for Alabama Power, one from Auburn and the other from  
Alabama were taking leaks at neighboring urinals.  And, like most  
pairs of coworkers that reflect this unique combination of cultural  
diversity, they never pass up a chance to put down the other's  
school. When they finished the Alabama graduate proceeded to wash his  
hands and as he walks on by without stopping to use a sink the Auburn  
grad tells the Alabama graduate:  "At least at Auburn they teach us  
not to pee on our fingers."

The Tomato Garden
  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, Vincenzo, who used to help him, was in prison.
  The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his
  Dear Vincenzo,
  I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be
  able to plant my tomato garden this year. I am 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 garden for me.
  Love, Papa
  A few days later he received a letter from his son.
  Dear Papa,
  I'd do anything for you Papa, except dig up that garden.
  That's where I buried the bodies.
  Love, Vinnie
  At 4 am the next morning, FBI and local police arrived and
  dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized
  to the old man and left. The same day the old man received another
  letter from his son.
  Dear Papa,
  Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I
  could do under the circumstances.
  Love, Vinnie
