    A man had fallen between the rails in a subway station.
    People were all crowding around trying to get him out
    before the train ran him over. They were all shouting,
    "Give me your hand!" But the man would not reach up.

    Joe elbowed his way through the crowd and leaned over the
    man. "Friend," he asked, "What is your profession?"

    "I am an IRS agent," gasped the man.

    "In that case," said Joe, "Take my hand!"

    The IRS agent immediately grasped Joe's hand and was
    hauled to safety. Joe turned to the amazed by-standers
    and declared, "Never ask an IRS agent to "give" you
    anything, you fools!"
