While the IRS might be skipping audits of the rich, one of my friends was not so lucky.
My friend Kristi was called in for an audit. Like any of us she was concerned, and asked her accountant for advice on what to wear for the appointment.
"Wear your shabbiest clothing. Let him think you are a pauper," her accountant suggested.
She then asked her lawyer the same question, but got conflicting advice.
"Don't let them intimidate you. Wear your most expensive business suit."
Needless to say, Kristi was confused.
So she went to her parish Priest, told him of the conflicting advice, and asked what he thought.
"Let me tell you a story," replied the Priest.
"There was a woman who was getting married and she asked her mother what to wear on her wedding night. Her mother told her to wear a heavy, long, flannel nightgown that went right up to her neck. But when she asked her best friend, she got a different opinion. Her friend told her to wear a sexy negligee, with a V neck right down to her navel."
Kristi, a little perturbed with the Priest's response, said, "Father, what does all this have to do with my problem with the IRS?!"
"Simple", replied the Priest, "It doesn't matter what you wear, you're going to get screwed!"
