Using an official agency credit card, the IRS wasted taxpayer funds by spending $119 on Nerf footballs for a “team building exercise,” according to a report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). Even worse, the IRS did not even use the footballs, which according to the report are currently sitting in an IRS filing cabinet somewhere deep within the bowels of the agency:

“Nerf footballs purchased for a team-building exercise but never used and currently stored in a filing cabinet.”

The same report also details dozens of other questionable purchases made with IRS credit cards, including Thomas the Tank Engine rubber wristbands, the world’s largest crossword puzzle, and “related alcohol purchases”.
