Post tax season joke

At the end of the tax year the IRS office sent an inspector to audit
the books of a Synagogue. While he was checking the books he turned
to the Rabbi and said, ‘I notice you buy a lot of candles. What do you do
with the candle drippings?’

‘Good question,’ noted the Rabbi. ‘We save them up and send them
back to the candle makers, and every now and then they send us a free
box of candles.’
‘Oh,’ replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual
question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way:
‘What about all these bread wafer purchases? What do you do with the crumbs?’

‘Ah, yes,’ replied the Rabbi, realizing that the inspector was trying to
trap him with an unanswerable question. ‘We collect them and send
them back to the manufacturer, and every now and then they send us
a free box of bread-wafers.’

‘I see,’ replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster
the know-it-all Rabbi. ‘Well, Rabbi,’ he went on, ‘what do you do
with all the leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?’

‘Here, too, we do not waste,’ answered the Rabbi. ‘What we do is
save all the foreskins and send them to the tax office, and about once
a year they send us a complete dick.
