Rabbi and the Tax Collector

At the end of the tax year the Tax office sent an inspector to audit the books of the 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 all 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 those matzo purchases? What do you do with all the crumbs?"
"Ah, yes," replied the rabbi, realising that the inspector was trying  to trap him with unanswerable questions.

"We collect them and send them back to the manufacturers and every so often they send us a free box of matzo balls."   "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  up all the foreskins and send them to the Tax Office, and about once a  year they send us a complete dick."
