At the Bar


Three accountants walk into a bar, and each orders a beer. They raise their glasses and make a toast: “Here’s to 59!” After downing their beers, they order another round and make the same toast: “Here’s to 59!”

This happens again and again. Finally, the bartender asks the accountants what the significance of the toast is. “Well,” said one of them, “we put a 1,000-piece jigsaw Puzzle together in just 59 days!”

“And that’s a big deal?” asked the barkeep.

“You bet,” said the same accountant, “the box said 4 to 8 YEARS!!!”

A guy in a bar leans over to the guy next to him and says, “Want to hear an accountant joke?”The guy next to him replies, “Well, before you tell that joke, you should know that Im 6 feet tall, 200 pounds, and Im an accountant. And the guy sitting next to me is 62” tall, 225 pounds, and hes an accountant. Now, do you still want to tell that joke?”The first guy says, “No, I dont want to have to explain it two times.”

What does an accountant say when you ask him the time? It’s 9.18 am and 12 seconds; no wait – 13 seconds, no wait – 14 seconds, no wait……

A local restaurant was so sure its massive Sumo chef was the strongest man around, they had a standing $1,000.00 offer that the chef would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass and then hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze just one more drop of juice out of the lemon would walk away with the money. Many people had tried, including weight lifters and longshoremen, but nobody could do it.

 

One day a scrawny little man wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit came in and said in a tiny squeaky voice, “I’d like to try it”. After the laughter had died down the chef said ,”OK”. He grabbed a lemon and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man. The crowd’s laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and one by one 6 drops fell into the glass.

 

As the crowd erupted into cheering, the chef paid the $1,000.00 and asked, “What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a builder’s laborer or what?”

 

He adjusted his glasses on his nose and said, “I work for the Tax Department”.
