Uh..., you could try the truth, in a diplomatic but accurate way of course.
If that doesn't get a laugh and break the ice with your prospect, then maybe
you don't want to be there.

More seriously, I make absolutely certain my references will give an
accurate and honest opinion of me. It doesn't matter how long ago I may have
worked with/for them, so long as it hasn't been too long and what they might
say about me is still relevant. I feel absolutely no obligation to submit
references in the strict reverse chronological order of my activities, and
neither should any of you. It's easier if you're an independent/freelancer
like me who has 2-3 clients a year, on average, rather than having been
'captive' in one place for several years.

Any ideas how to politely convey that my next-to-last boss was fired for
embezzlement, and is thus unavailable?
