Testifying for the irs
A man, called to testify at the IRS, asked his accountant for advice on
what to wear. "Wear your shabbiest clothing. Let him think you are a pauper," the
accountant replied. Then he asked his lawyer the same question, but got the opposite advice.
"Do not let them intimidate you. Wear your most elegant suit and tie."
Confused, the man went to his Rabbi, told him of the conflicting advice,
and requested some resolution of the dilemma. "Let me tell you a story," replied the Rabbi. "A woman, about to be
married, asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night.
She replied suggesting that her daughter wear a heavy, long, flannel
nightgown that goes right up to her neck. But when she asked her best friend, she got conflicting advice. Wear
your sexiest negligee, with a Vee neck right down to your navel."
The man protested: "Rabbi, what does all this have to do with my problem
with the IRS?" "No matter what you wear, you are going to get screwed.
