    The local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man around
    that they offered a standing $1000 bet. The bartender would squeeze a lemon
    until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone
    who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money. Many
    people had tried over time (weight-lifters, longshoremen, etc.) but nobody
    could do it.

    One day this scrawny little man came into the bar, wearing thick glasses and
    a polyester suit, and said in a tiny squeaky voice "I'd like to try the bet." After
    the laughter had died down, the bartender said OK, grabbed a lemon, and
    squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little

    But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist
    around the lemon and six drops fell into the glass. As the crowd cheered, the
    bartender paid the $1000, and asked the little man...

    "What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weight-lifter, what?"

    The man replied, "I work for the IRS."

    Red Ryder: I'm not sure how to take your comment. Do you mean the posting is offensive to you? Or do you mean the posting is so true that it isn't funny?

    If it's the first way, than I apologize to you for being offensive. I've got sort of a weird sense of humor sometimes.

    If it's the second way, I suppose that is what broke me up when I first read it myself.

    I certainly think it was so funny because its so true.
