One Day a Scrawny Little Man Decided to Take on a Strong Bartender

In so many ways the saying - don’t judge a book by its cover has proven to be accurate, and in this joke of the day, an entire local bar got reminded of that fact.

At the local bar works a bartender so strong that they incorporated a standing bet of $1000 to anyone who could prove stronger.

In the test, Mack, the bartender, would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, he would then pass it to a challenger, who would win the bet and a $1000 if at least one more drop could be squeezed out of what's left.

Over time, many people including weight-lifters, longshoremen and the likes tried to outdo Mack, but to no avail.

Then one day, a skinny little man wearing a polyester suit and thick glasses walks into the bar. He approaches Mack, and in a squeaky voice, he says, “I’d like to try the bet.”

The bar erupts in laughter, and it takes a minute or two before Mack raises his hand in a gesture for everyone to keep quiet and says, “Ok, let’s give it a shot,” and promptly grabs a lemon and starts squeezing.

Before long all that’s left of the lemon is a glass full of juice and wrinkled rind, which he hands to the peculiar fellow.

He takes the lemon and clenches his fist around it. The bar suddenly falls silent as six more drops of juice falls into a glass.

Having won fair and square everyone cheered him on, and Mack paid the $1000, but since he had come up against the strongest of men, he just had to know what this little man did for a living.

“What line of work are you in? Are you a lumberjack or a weight-lifter, or what?” Mack asks curiously.

“I’m an IRS agent,” the man replies.

And to keep the laughter going we added another joke about taxes.

A little boy desperately wanted $100 and prayed for two weeks, but nothing happened. Deciding his efforts could use improvement, he wrote a letter wherein he asked the Lord for $100.

Once the letter arrived at the post office, they were puzzled as to where it should go, because the letter is addressed to the Lord, USA.

Reasoning that the sender could have meant to send it to the president, they decided to send it to President Clinton.

The President found the unusual request touching, but he was also impressed and amused. So he instructed his secretary to send the boy a $5 bill, thinking that to the little boy it would seem like a lot of money.

Delighted with the reply and the $5 bill, the boy decided to write a thank-you note to the Lord, which read, “Dear Lord, Thank you very much for sending me the money.

However, I noticed that for some reason, you had to send it through Washington, DC, and as usual, those jerks deducted $95.”

On a related note, an old lady showed a bank president how lucrative deals get made when she walked into a bank to deposit a huge bag of money.
