best expense report
I worked with a guy who had an expense report that included dinner, drinks, "exotic dances", a tow truck fee, 2 parking tickets, and a pet grooming! When he turned it in the initially turned it down, but he went back and told them he was authorized by the CEO to do whatever it took to make the customer he was out with happy. They paid 95% of it!

The most ridiculous
The company "accidentally" switched our cell phone plans so that we each had to pay for our own usage. I ended up with a 5,000 dollar bill because they also decided to "accidentally" cut out texting and data. The write-up was "I ain't payin' for this."

Our clients (surgeons) ordered three $170 bottles of wine and the sales consultant I was with conveniently left before the check came. As the only corporate representative left, I was stuck with the check (~$1000) and had to do some 'splainin to our expense department to get reimbursed. And to top it off, the lead surgeon spent the entire dinner on his cell phone.
On a side note, our expense rules were 17.5% max tip. A colleague used to calculate this and then add ~50 cents just to **** them off.

Best expense report
I had a guy try to buy a female escort on his government purchase card and pass it off as "entertainment expenses". Gotta love the air force

Craziest Expense report item
I used to be Administrative Support for a team of salesmen and they would submit their expense reports to me after their trips. One gentleman tried to expense a new wedding ring when he left his old one in the bathroom of his "one night stand"'s hotel room. He tried to tell me it was loss of personal property on company business. Needless to say, it wasn't covered.

The best expense report I've seen was for a company convention in Las Vegas. A vendor (who shall remain nameless) took us out to the top clubs (including Tao) five nights in a row. 20+ people all in VIP with bottle service was awesome, but the expense report (in excess of $200K) got him a call from the CFO. Good times, good times!!

Pillows. I once had to stay in one of those overnight hotels with no front desk coverage during late hours and when I went to bed, I realized there were no pillows, so i went to the local walmart, bought some really good ones and expensed them.

I bought some Miley Cyrus songs on iTunes for a special event. The scary part is I've been playing it since.

Had to expense a rental goat, horse and cow for a promotional event for a company I used to work for. Also had to expense the fine from the city for not having a permit for "live animals" and the "waste disposal" fee to clean up the animal's ****. Awesome.
