The IRS decides to audit an old boat Captain, and summons him to the IRS office. The auditor was not surprised when the Captian showed up with his attorney.
The auditor said, “Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and only a retirement check, which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I’m not sure the IRS finds that believable.”
“I’m a great gambler, and I can prove it,” says the Captain. “How about a demonstration?”
The auditor thinks for a moment and said, “Okay. Go ahead.”
The Captain says, “I’ll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.”
The auditor thinks a moment and says, “It’s a bet.”
The Captain removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor’s jaw drops.
The Captain says, “Now, I’ll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.”
Now the auditor can tell the Captain isn’t blind, so he takes the bet. The Captain removes his dentures and bites his good eye.
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with the Captain’s attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.
“Want to go double or nothing?” the Captain asks. “I’ll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.”
The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there’s no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.
The Captain stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can’t make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he ends up urinating all over the auditor’s desk.
The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a huge win. the Captain’s own attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.
“Are you okay?” the auditor asks.
“Not really,” says the attorney. “This morning, when the Captain told me he’d been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and pee all over your desk and that you’d be happy about it!
