    Oil for bodybuilding competition. It is essential and counts as a business expense!

    I put down liquor (something I wasn't aloud to expense back in an old company) I had with clients as "$200 worth of really good soft drinks." Not the greatest, but hey, we got the sales.

    I once had to buy 30 bottles of baby oil to make a slip and slide for a church camp. Had a hard time explaining to a church finance office what we were doing with that much baby oil, much less any baby oil on an expense report.

    I expensed a full day's meals, travel, etc. for about 3 minutes of work because the client demanded someone onsite to "fix their network" which turned out to be their ISP's equipment which someone had unplugged.

    When I first moved to Dubai, one of our overseas directors visited to work on a project with our office. As was the tradition at the time, some of the fellas took him to a local establishment which was essentially a brothel. (Google: Cyclone Club Dubai)

    At the end of the month, he submitted the cover charge stub filed under "meals".

    TMI! WE DO NOT NEED TO KNOW WHAT WENT DOWN IN THERE!!! JESUS!!!!

    Sidenote - rumor says that one of the ladies told him "But you're old enough to be my dad!" Classic!

    I once expensed a leather flask while on a business trip. My boss, realizing how stressful my trip had been, paid for the flask.

    Several years ago I was on a trip with my boss and we hadn't had time in the morning to take a shower prior to starting our trip back to the states. When we arrived in Paris my boss saw that they had showers and decided he would willingly pay for a shower, I followed suit.

    A month later when our credit card bills arrived my boss yelled down from his office to mine, "When did we buy a ******"? it took him and I several minutes to figure out that the ****** was a shower.

    So there it is, I reported a ****** on my expense report.

    Nothing outrageous but I did have all my meals with my wife covered because of 2 for 1 coupons. Didn't have to pay for her food at all (out of pocket).

    The Kentucky Association of Counties expensed strippers on a trip for board members. They obviously got in a lot of trouble for spending tax payer money on strippers!

    I was working sales for a seed company and was invited to a potential clients hunting retreat he was having. The guy at the sporting goods store sold me some deer scent to spread around the hunting stand. When I was writing out the report, the receipt actually said "Deer Urine". So I put that down. Always wondered if they even gave it a second look. Probably not. lol

    believe it or not but the craziest thing i've seen on an expense report is $2000 worth of nutella, $300 worth of milk, and a $500 pool. I wonder what they were thinking...
