“Someone keeps adding soil to my allotment The plot thickens…”

"The plot thickens” usually refers to a story or situation, but there is a pun:

“Someone keeps adding soil to my allotment overnight. It’s an absolute mystery as to why though. The plot thickens...”

The joke was cited on Twitter on March 10, 2010 and probably originated on Sickipedia.
