SEPTEMBER 1, 2001
doing some painting for the local doctor. When he
finished the job the doctor gave it a thorough inspection
(he had known Buster a long time) , and much to the
doctor's suprise, Buster had really done an excellent job.
The doctor paid Buster the amount that had been agreed on
and then handed Buster a crisp new $50 bill saying "Buster
you did such an excellent job. Here is $50. Take the
missus out tonight for dinner and a movie." Well at
7PM the door bell rings at the doctor's house and there
stands Buster in his best clothes. Puzzled the doctor
asked "Buster did you forget something?"
10% of the taxpayers pay about 60% of the taxes collected, 30% pay 37%, and 60% collectively pay only 4%. An example follows.
night, 10 men met at a restaurant for dinner. At the end
of the meal, the bill would arrive; they owed $100 for
the food that they shared. Every night they lined up in
the same order at the cash register to pay the bill.
Leroy had passed the new restaurant several times and was thinking about their big sign which read "$100 IF WE FAIL TO FILL YOUR ORDER" He decides to go in and make an easy $100. His order was a flamingo sandwich on rye bread. The waitress carries the order to the kitchen and an awful argument erupts. After a few minutes the cook comes out and places a $100 bill on Leroy's table and said "Well you got us, this is the first time we ever ran out of rye bread."
A TOUGH JOB
Aaron stops at Cousin Harley's house one
afternoon and Harley is really messed up. He has a
bruised lip, messy hair, and a puffed eye. His clothes
are wrinkled and torn in several places. He has bruises
and is bleeding on his arms and neck. Aaron helps Harley
inside and asked "Harley! What in the world has
happened to you?"
