The Taxman and the Rabbi

Bedlam Humour

This is another joke from Jack Chambers

The taxman and the Rabbi:
At the end of the tax year the tax office sent an inspector to audit the books of a synagogue. While he was checking the books he turned to the Rabbi and said; ‘I notice that you buy a lot of candles. What do you do with the candle drippings?’
‘Good question,’ noted the Rabbi. ‘We save them up and send them back to the candle makers, then, once a year they send us a free box of candles.’
‘Oh,’ replied the inspector, somewhat peeved that his unusual question had such a practical answer. But he went on in his obnoxious way. ‘What about all the Holy biscuits, what do you do with all the crumbs?’
‘We do the same,’ said the Rabbi, realising that the inspector was trying to catch him out, ‘and once a year the biscuit people send us a free box of biscuits.’
‘I see,’ said the auditor, thinking hard how he could he could fluster the know-it-all Rabbi. ‘Well, Rabbi,’ he went on, ‘what do you do with all the left over foreskins from the circumcisions that you perform?’
‘Here, too, we do not waste,’ answered the Rabbi, ‘we save up all the foreskins and send them to the tax office and once a year, about now, they send us a complete dick!’
