Old ranch owner John farmed a small ranch in Montana.  The Montana Wage and Hour Department claimed he was not paying proper wages to his workers and sent an agent out to interview him. 'I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them,' demanded the agent. 'Well,' replied old John, 'There's my ranch hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $600 a week plus free room and board. The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $500 a week plus free room and board. Then there's the half-wit who works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night.' 'That's the guy I want to talk to, the half-wit,' says the agent. 'That would be me,' replied old rancher John.

Mr. and Mrs. Brown had two sons. One was named Mind Your Own Business and the other was named Trouble.  One day the two boys decided to play hide and seek.  Trouble hid while Mind Your Own Business counted to one hundred.  Mind Your Own Business began looking for his brother behind garbage cans and bushes.  He then started looking in and under cars until a police man approached him asked, "What are you doing?"  "Playing a game," the boy replied.  "What is your name?" the officer requested.  "Mind Your Own Business."  Furious the officer inquired, "Are you looking for trouble?!"  The boy replied "Why, yes."
