20 January 2013 – Amusements

I should have had this last week when I was working through our taxes. Not sure that the Revenue will accept this strategy but then again, all Vodaphone had to do was take the head of the service out to a very expensive dinner and he let them off something approaching £4 billion in unpaid taxes. Hey ho!

A man wrote a letter to the IRS: “I have been unable to sleep knowing that I have cheated on my income tax. I understated my taxable income and have enclosed a check for $200.00. If I still can’t sleep, I will send the rest.”

And this complements our seasonal dieting advice along with the tape worm diet:

It’s sure easier to stay on a healthy diet now that chocolate, red wine, and coffee have all been proven to help prevent heart disease and strokes.

I know we’ve had something similar to this before:

A husband was having great difficulty getting along with his wife – nothing but arguing and friction – so he decided to consult a marriage counsellor. After they had talked for a while, the counsellor said, “I suggest that you run five miles each day for a week. Then please call me back.”

A week later the counsellor received a call from the husband, “Well,” asked the counsellor, “how are things going with you and your wife?

“How should I know?” said the husband. “I’m thirty-five miles away.”
