A Good American

Saturday, April 7, 2007
Like all GOOD Americans I finished my taxes yesterday. Which is to say I crammed all my receipts and bank statements into a giant manila envelope and dropped it off at my accountant's office when he was not looking. Now it's his problem.

I worked really hard and got several nasty paper cuts. Here are some photos of me, upstanding American that I am, working hard on my taxes*.

*actual photos do not represent, nor are they intended to represent, a citizen of the United States of America engaging in his/her/its patriotic duty to prepare and pay in full all taxes due to the federal, state, or local government all of which are run by simians, which does not imply, infer, or suggest the validity or the invalidity of Darwin's theory of evolution. If the amount on line 14 was paid on or after 4/15/07, enter 0. If the amount on line 14 was paid before 4/15/07, make the following computation to find the amount to enter on line 16. Amount on line 14 multiplied by Number of days paid before 4/15/07 multiplied by .00022”. In 1814 we took a little trip. Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip. We took a little bacon and we took a little beans and we fought the bloody British near the town of New Orleans. My gosh, look at the time!

Don't forget, all calculations must be done on paper without benefit of a calculator. Show your work!

I knew you were just a big kid at heart. O r maybe just a big kid.

Here in Canada,eh, we are semi socialized - public health care, no guns, restrictive liquor laws, in bed by 11.00 and sidewalks taken up by 11.30 - we have an easier tax system.

We just send all of our money to the government and they send back what they don't need.

RR and we have until April 30th to send them they money.

This lacks only a guitar riff behind it to be a Swinging Orangutangs song. My word verification includes the word "drec." Your post is anything but. THanks for the laugh.

That pic on the pelican is wonderful! You don't often see that much joy on an adult's face at tax time.
