The IRS Audit
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."
