At the end of the tax year the tax office sent an inspector to audit the books of a synagogue.

While he was checking the books he turned to the rabbi and said "I notice you buy a lot of candles. What do you do with the candle dripping?"

Good question, noted the rabbi.

"We save them up and send them back to the candle makers and every now and then they send us a box of free candles."

"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer.

But he went on, in his obnoxious way.

"What about all these bread-wafer purchases? What do you do with the crumbs?"

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

"We collect them and send them back to the manufacturers and every now and then they send us a free box of bread-wafers."

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

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

"Here too we do not waste," answered the rabbi.

"What we do is save all the foreskins and send them to the tax office, and about once a year they send us a complete dick!!"
