The World's Strongest Man.

The local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man
around that they offered a standing $1000 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 had tried over time (weightlifters, longshoremen, etc.) but
nobody could do it.

One day this scrawny little man came in, wearing thick glasses and a
polyester suit, and said in a tiny, squeaky voice, "I'd like to try the
bet."

After the laughter had died down, the bartender said OK, 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 man clenched
his fist around the lemon and six drops fell into the glass.

As the crowd cheered, the bartender payed the $1000, and asked the
little man, "What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a
weightlifter, or what?"

The man replied, "I work for the IRS."

A good one. I must pass it along.
