I was on a business trip to China where I was asked to go out for dinner with one of our clients. I wasn't sure where we were headed but got a sinking feeling when we pulled up to the "Pineapple Club", a gentlemen's club. There was only 2 of us that evening but the bill ended up being over $400 which included a drink tab, food, and multiple dances with tips all showing separately on my credit card bill. I thought for sure I would be fired upon return, but when I did the walk of shame to explain the charges I was asked "did you all have fun?" I answered yes, and not another word was uttered... I didn't go out of my way to explain there was only 2 of us though.

Believe it or not
I expensed a bra and thong from Victoria Secrets. Turns out that my client was into having hers ripped off instead of simply undressing. My company got the contract, she got new underwear and I get High fives from my CEO whenever i see him.

Once, back in the early 90s, after visiting Moscow on a business trip, claimed back hotel expenses....unknowingly to me, the finance officer could read Russian and I've received a phone call asking me to explain how come I had spent circa USD 500,00 in pay per view TV ;-)

In 2008 my wife and I went on a trip to Chicago (we live in Barcelona, Spain).
And as my wife is a PEZHEAD (PEZ collector), I put in my expense book 400+$ in PEZ CANDY DISPENSERS and relative paraphernalia, in various stores.
Tell me that's not CRAZY!!

I came across a case where a lawyer had expensed his heart surgery against his professional fees, saying the expense was "current repairs" and that his heart was a "plant or machinery"!! Was laughing off till half an hour

We used to set up trade shows in Chicago, and we had a budget line item for cash bribes. In order to get our electrical/carpet/etc on time, we had to grease somebody. Eventually the unions cracked down on the practice.

Wow...craziest thing. Not so crazy I guess, but liquor for my hotel room. Needed that on some of those work trips to deal with the others at the conferences.

So, craziest thing I have ever put on a expense report. Hmmm lets see, well, in a three day weekend few years back I dropped the following on the bosses tab:
"party favors" of an "adult nature" for a certain 3 ft 9 in adult actress.
Reptile food for a two headed turtle
Multiple long swords.
Bio hazard Containers
liquid paraffin wax (aka: fire breathing fuel)
and 8" aluminum gutter spikes for a bed of nails
See, I work in the Tattoo/Body Modification industry and for the past several years we have thrown an Tattoo/Sideshow convention in the Northeast US. While the aforementioned isn't too shocking being in "that circle", it's still crazy to see it written off as a business expense. Would have loved to see the personal or government accountant who perused this! All legit expenses, but would you want to audit the person on the end of that account!

PdaNet for my jailbroken 3GS. A guy's got to have internet access on the move.
I'm sure it'll transfer to a new White iPhone 4 or I'll have to expense that too.
Go team jailbreak!

The crasiest (and stupidest) thing I've ever bought was a Kin One, and I'm still locked on the contract... To make things worse, Verizon coverage is the worst in my area
Please TiPb, only a white tech unicorn can help me. If I win the iPhone4 I would be able to pay to brake my contract and jump to a gsm carrier with the little money I have saved. And also, I would not need to buy a new phone, because I'd have my unicorn given by you guys to save me!
