    Red face Tax Humor

    There was a man who owned a bar and had a running bet with the patrons. He had a damp cloth that if anyone could squeeze one last drop of water out of it, they got a thousand dollars.

    Many people tried and failed. One day as several large, strong guys were trying, a wimpy, skinny guy came up and asked if he could try.

    Everyone was laughing as he was handed the cloth, but he grapsed it in his small hands and proceeded to wring out not one, but three drops. Everyone gasped at this and the bartender handed over the prize.

    "Are you some kind of weighlifter or strong man?" Asked the bartender.

    "No" replied the small man, "I work for the IRS."

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Either that, or the towel was the only red one amongst a stack of blues.

    It must have been a Tea Party towel.

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
