A scruffy contractor was being audited. His stated income did not exactly match his assets, and the auditor peered closely at the numbers on his return.”How have you managed to own such a luxurious villa while your income is so low?” asked the IRS auditor.
“Well,” the contractor answered, “while fishing last summer I caught a large golden fish. When I took it off the hook, the fish opened his mouth and said, ‘I am a magical fish. Throw me back into the sea and I’ll give you the most luxurious villa you have ever seen’. I threw the fish back to the sea, and *poof* there was my villa.”
“How can you prove such an unbelievable story?” asked the auditor.
The contractor looked indignant. “Well, you can see the villa, can’t you?”
