Why you should never trust the IRS !

  1. A modern day cowboy has spent many days crossing the desert withoutwater.
    His horse has already died of thirst. He's crawling through the sands, certain that he has breathed his last, when all of a sudden, he sees an object sticking out of the sand several yards ahead of him.

    He crawls to the object, pulls it out of the sand, and discovers what looks to be an old brief case. He opens it and out pops a genie. But this is no ordinary genie. She is wearing an Internal Revenue Service, IDbadge, and a dull gray dress. There's a calculator in her pocketbook. She has a pencil tucked behind one ear.

    "Well, cowboy," says the genie... "You know how it works. You have three wishes."

    "I'm not falling for this." Says the man. "I'm not going to trust an
    IRS auditor."

    "What do you have to lose? You've got no transportation, and it looks like you're a goner any way!"

    The man thinks about this for a minute, and decides that the genie is right.
    "OK, I wish I were in a lush oasis with plenty of food and drink."

    The cowboy finds himself in the most beautiful oasis he has ever seen. He is surrounded with jugs of wine and platters of delicacies.

    "OK, cowpoke, what's your second wish."

    "My second wish is that I were rich beyond my wildest dreams."
    The man finds himself surrounded by treasure chests filled with rare gold coins and precious gems.

    "OK, cowpuncher, you have just one more wish. Better make it a good one!"

    After thinking for a few minutes, the man says.. "I wish that no
    matter where I go, beautiful women will want and need me."
    He is turned into a tampon.

    The moral of the story: If the government offers you anything, there's going to be a string attached.
