Subject: IRS in the synagogue...

The Internal Revenue Service sent their auditor to a synagogue. The auditor
is doing all the checks and then turns to the Rabbi, and says, "I noticed
that you buy a lot of candles."

"Yes," answered the Rabbi.

"Well, Rabbi, what do you do with the candle drippings?" he asked.

"A good question," noted the Rabbi. "We actually save them up and when we
have enough, we send them back to the candle maker and every now and
then, they send us a free box of candles."

"Oh," replied the auditor somewhat disappointed that his unusual question
actually had a practical answer. So he thought he'd go on, in his obnoxious
way... "Rabbi, what about all these matzo purchases? What do you do
with the crumbs from the matzo?"

"Ah, yes," replied the Rabbi calmly, "we actually collect up all the
crumbs from the matzo and when we have enough, we send them in a box back to
the manufacturer and every now and then, they send a box of matzo balls."

"Oh," replied the auditor, thinking hard how to fluster the Rabbi.

"Well, Rabbi," he went on, "what do you do with all the foreskins from
the circumcisions?"

"Yes, here too, we do not waste," answered the Rabbi. "What we do is save up
all the foreskins, and when we have enough we send them to the IRS ".

"IRS?" questioned the auditor in disbelief.

"Ah, yes," replied the Rabbi,
"IRS ...and about once a year, they send us a little prick like you."
