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 (weight-lifters, truck drivers, etc.) 
but nobody could do it. One day this scrawny little man came into the 
bar, 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 paid the $1000, and asked the 
little man "What do you do for a living?  Are you a lumberjack, a 
weight-lifter, or what?"

The man replied "I work for the IRS."
