A Joke.

A Joke.

Got this in my email this morning, and thought it was pretty funny.

At the end of the tax year, the IRS office sent an inspector to
audit the books of a local hospital. While the IRS agent was checking
the books he turned to the CFO of the hospital and said, “I notice you
buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when
there’s too little left to be of any use?”

“Good question,”
noted the CFO. “We save them up and send them back to the bandage
company and every now and then they send us a free box of bandages.”

“Oh,”
replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question
had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way. “What
about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what’s left over
after setting a cast on a patient?”

“Ah, yes,” replied the CFO,
realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him with an
unanswerable question. “We save it and send it back to the
manufacturer, and every now and then they send us a free package of
plaster.”

“I
see,” replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the
know-it-all CFO. “Well,” he went on, “What do you do with all the
leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?”

“Here,
too, we do not waste,” answered the CFO. “What we do is save all the
little foreskins and send them to the IRS Office, and about once a year
they send us a complete dick.”
