An old Arab man who lived in Idaho wanted to plant potatoes in his garden, but plowing the soil was a great deal of work for him.
His only son was studying in France.
The old man sends his son an e-mail telling him about his problem;
I feel sad because this year I won't be able to plant potatoes in my garden. I'm too old to work the soil. If you were here, all my problems would be solved. I know you would remove the soil for me.
A few days later, the old man receives an e-mail from his son:
Whatever you do don't plow up the soil in the garden, that's were I hid you know what.
Next day at 4 am, the police, FBI and the CIA knocks at the old man's door. They go and check the garden for chemical materials to build bombs, massive destruction weapons, mustard gas, anthrax, SARS viruses, etc. They don't find anything and leave.
The same day the old man receives another e-mail from his son:
I'm sure by now you can plant your potatoes, that's the best I can do from this far away.
