Sherlock and the IRS

A stockbroker received notice from the IRS that he was being audited. He showed up
at the appointed time and place with all his financial records, then sat for what
seemed like hours as the accountant pored over them.
Finally the IRS agent looked up and commented, "You must have been a tremendous fan
of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."
"Why would you say that?" replied the broker.
"Because you've made more brilliant deductions on your last three returns than
Sherlock Holmes made in his entire career."
