Once a bar owner announced a competition in his bar. His bartender would squeeze a lemon. Anyone could try to squeeze juice a drop more would win $200. But anyone who lost would have to pay $10.
Many strong and sturdy customers tried to squeeze a drop more after the bartender. But no one was able to win the challenge.
Then one evening, a lean man walked over and accepted the challenge. He was able to squeeze out 6 drops after the bartender had squeezed the lemon.
After the man had pocketed his prize, the bartender asked him.” How were you able to do that after many people stronger than you had tried and failed?”
The man replied,” I work for the Income Tax Department (it is called the IRS in the US).”
An accountant goes into a pet shop to buy a parrot. The shop owner shows him three identical parrots on a perch and says, “The parrot on the left costs $500.”
“Why does that parrot cost so much?” asks the accountant.
“Well,” replies the owner, “it knows how to do complex audits.”
“How much does the middle parrot cost?” asks the accountant.
“That one costs $1,000 because it can do everything the first one can do plus it knows how to prepare financial forecasts”.
The startled accountant asks about the third parrot, to be told it costs $4,000. Needless to say, this begs the question, “What can it do?”
To which the owner replies “To be honest, I’ve never seen him do a darn thing, but the other two call him Senior Partner.”
