An accountant and an economist are walking through a forest.

They encounter a frog.

"I bet you $100 you won't lick it," says the economist.

The accountant, daring, licks the frog and receives $100.

They walk further, see another frog.

"Lick this frog, and you get your $100 back!" says the accountant. The economist looks at his friend in the eye, licks the frog and retrieves his $100.

"What was the point of this exercise? We've both done something disgusting, and we're no better off!"

"We have grown the local economy by $200!" says the economist.

"Yeah but we owe the government $40 each!"

*sigh*

From the economist's point of view, they have each spent $100 therefore $200 has been introduced to the local economy. From the accountant's point of view, each has won $100 and has to pay tax on it.

It is funny because in reality they are no better off than the start, and they have just licked a frog.

:rolleyes:

I think the accountant is wrong because winning are not subject to income tax. They are not earned income.

Depends where you are in the world! In the USA gambling winnings are fully taxable.
