Oh, God!

An over-zealous public official believed in first-hand assessment of all his assignments. He always used to go out in the field for the purpose. Once he was touring a remote area and no sooner had he settled himself in the dak bunglow and had a cup of tea than he got into his Jeep and drove out to observe how things were in the vicinity. To his horror, he found signs of neglect and desolation all around him until he came to a plot of land which had been well developed into a pretty garden. He noticed a man puttering about inside. So he stopped the vehicle and walked to the fence. "Hello there," he bellowed. "God and you seem to have done a wonderful job with this garden." The man got up and came towards him. "Well, thank you, sir. It's kind of you to say so. But, really, you ought to have seen this place when God was in sole charge."
