This is for Andrew Riley.

A young woman walks into a Chartered accountant's office and tells him that she needs to file her tax Returns.

The accountant says, 'Before we begin, I'll need to ask you a few questions.'

He gets her name, address etc. and then asks, ' What's your occupation?'

'I'm a prostitute', she says.

The accountant is taken aback and says, 'That's too gross. Let's try to re-phrase that."

The woman says, 'OK, I'm a high-end call girl' .

'No, that still won't work. Need something more acceptable.'

They both think for a minute; then the woman says, 'I'm an elite poultry farmer.'

The accountant asks, 'What does poultry farming have to do, with being a prostitute?'

'Well, I raised a thousand cocks last year.'

Chartered Acct : 'Brilliant !! *Poultry Farmer" it is !!! and Agricultural Income is tax-free.'
