An Old Maori Man

Mon Dec 05, 2005 3:42 am

An old Maori man lived alone at his family home in Ruatoria. He wanted
to dig his kumara garden, but it was very hard work. His only son,
Hone, who used to help him, was in Paremoremo prison.

The man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament.


Kia ora e Hone,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won't be able to
plant my kumara garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up
a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you
would dig the plot for me.
Aroha nui
Papa

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

E Pa,
For God's sake!, don't dig up that garden, that's where I buried the
BODIES.
Love Hone

At 4am the next morning, Gisborne C.I.B and the local police showed
up with a search warrant and dug up the entire area without finding any
bodies. They apologized to the old man and left.

That same day the man received another letter from his son.


E Pa
Go ahead and plant the Kumara. That's the best I could do under the
circumstances!
Love Hone

Like the thread that QFF got so uptight about, I have heard this story about many nationalities!
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Wow.. he went a long way to prison..

Don't think that the police would be in that much of a hurry either.. lol

they worry too much on catching speeding motorists than they do with crime to make the government's stats better.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

East Cape - head up the coast from GIS - trying to remember what it's claim to fame was a few years ago ( or notoriety is probably more accurate from what I recall , which admittedly is not much )

pretty sure it was/is one of the best dope-growing areas of the country as well


edited to add dope-growing reference
