The local pub was so sure that its barman was the strongest
man around that it offered a standing one thousand dollars
bet that no one could beat him.
The challenge was that the barman would squeeze a lemon
until all the juice ran out into a beer glass, then hand the
lemon to a customer. Anyone who could squeeze even one
more drop out of the lemon would win the money.
Over the years many people had tried this, truck drivers,
weightlifters and all had failed.
Then one day this frail little fella with heavy rimmed spectacles
came into the bar and asked if he could try the challenge.
After the laughter had subsided the barman said that it was
only fair that the man be given a chance at the bet, so he
picked up a lemon and started squeezing.
Once he was done he handed the remains to the little man
who promptly squeezed out 4 more drops of juice onto
Everyone looked on in amazement as the barman handed
over the prize and asked,
“What do you do for a living that has given you such
strength? Are you a lumberjack, weightlifter, what?”
“No” the man replied, “I work for IRS.”

A man is at work one day when he notices that his
co-worker is wearing an earring.
This man knows his co-worker to be a somewhat
conservative fellow, so naturally he’s curious about
the sudden change in fashion sense.
The man walks up to his co-worker and says,
“I didn’t know you were into earrings.”
“Don’t make such a big deal, it’s only an earring,”
he replies sheepishly.
“Well, I’m curious,” begged the man, “how long have you been wearing an earring?”
“…ever since my wife found it in our bed.”
