A Little Friday Farm Subsidies Humor

We all love to laugh at nonsensical government programs, so here’s a quote making fun of the absurdity of farm subsidies:

I heard on the news once, and my uncle does this. The government will pay certain farmers to not grow corn. Wow, where’s my check? That’d be great.

“Hey, what do you do for a living?”

“Well, I don’t grow corn. Get up at the crank of noon, make sure there’s no corn growin’. You know we used to not grow tomatoes, but there’s more money in not growin’ corn.”
