The accounting definition adds some irony to the context.

You'll have to be a bit less circumspect for those of us that aren't accountants so don't know what the accounting definition is.

FWIW, I find it amusing from what I think of as the "normal" definition - that is that they're "giving" to a charitable organization, when really it seems what they're really doing is getting rid of stuff they don't want and just dumping it with the charity because of the tax writeoff.
