They tried to deduct what?! (CNNMoney)

Sex with prostitutes is apparently not considered a legitimate medical expense. Who would have guessed?
A lawyer from New York kept track of his visits with prostitutes in a journal and tried to deduct their "services" as medical expenses.
The whopping $65,934 may have tipped off the IRS to a problem.
He also attempted to deduct nearly $5,000 for pornography and sex therapy books and magazines.
Aaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha! That's freaking hilarious! Apparently "Uncle Sam was not amused" but there's no way the agent reviewing that tax return didn't laugh his ass off.

Other deductions (from other people) nixed by the government included sperm donations, underwear and Scientology classes. Thank goodness we all work in an industry where we actually can deduct things like movie tickets and our cable bills.
