A local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man around that they offered a standing $1,000 bet. The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money. Many people (weightlifters, longshoremen, lumberjackes, etc.) had tried over time 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 the bet."
After the laughter died down, the bartender said okay, grabbed a lemon, and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man. But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence as the men clenched his fist around the lemon and six drops fell into the glas. As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid the $1,000, and asked the little man, "What do you do for a living?"
The man replied, "I work for the IRS."
