The Last Drop of the Lemon

- 25 April 2013, 07:04

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
(weightlifters, longshoremen, etc.)
but nobody could do it.

One day this scrawny little man came in, 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?”

The man replied,
“I work for the IRS.”
