Squeezing lemon

Squeezing Lemons
> 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 (weight-lifters, longshoremen, etc.) but
> nobody could do it.
> One day this scrawny little man came into the bar, 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? Are you a lumberjack, a weight-lifter, or
> what?"
> The man replied "I work for the IRS."
