    At the end of the tax year, Revenue Canada sent an
    inspector to audit the books of a local hospital.

    While the Revenue Canada agent was checking the books he
    turned to the CFO of the hospital and said,

    "I notice you buy a lot of bandages.. What do you do with the
    end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?"

    "Good question," noted the CFO. "We save them up and send
    them back to the bandage company and every now and then they
    send us a free box of bandages."

    "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 these plaster purchases? What do you do with
    what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?"

    "Ah, yes," replied the CFO, realizing that the inspector was
    trying to trap him with an unanswerable question.

    "We save it and send it back to the manufacturer, and every now and then
    they send us a free package of plaster."

    "I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he
    could fluster the know-it-all CFO.

    "Well," he went on, "What do you do with all the foreskins
    from the circumcisions you perform?"

    "Here, too, we do not waste," answered the CFO.
    "What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to
    the Revenue Canada Office, and about once a year they send us
    a complete dick."
