Funny Fridays 4/17/09 — Because It’s Better to Laugh than to Cry!
“I am the Tax Man . . .”
Under the Freedom of Information Act, a man with a small business sent a request to the IRS asking if they had a file on him. The IRS wrote back, “There is now.”
After reading a nursery rhyme to his child, an accountant says, “No, son. It wouldn’t be tax deductible when Little Bo Peep loses her sheep. But I like your thinking.”

“Why would you say that?” wondered the broker.
“Because you’ve made more brilliant deductions on your last three returns than Sherlock Holmes made in his entire career.”
